A week ahead of when it was supposed to be released, Gearbox has released the first DLC for Borderlands 2, which makes Mechromancer class available to play.

Gaige the Machromancer is a young girl who comes with her own robot companion who can be called into battle when your skill bar is full, the news was broke earlier this morning from Randy Pitchford’s Twitter account, who is the President of the company.

So – here’s the surprise, Mechromancer for Borderlands 2 is ready about a week earlier than I promised. Oct 9, all platforms. Woo!

Should be available for download on all platforms by the end of the day. #GaigeFTW

The DLC will be available for free if you have pre-ordered the game using the code you received with the game at launch, if you weren’t cool enough to pre-order the game the DLC will set you back 800 MS Points or £6.85.

If you’re still unsure you should probably check out the skill tree for Gaige here.
