Borderlands 2 on-disc content complete, off to certification

Friday, 20th July 2012 01:53 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Gearbox has gleefully announced that Borderlands 2 is, to all intents and purposes, done.

That doesn’t mean the shooter RPG has gone gold yet; as detailed on the Gearboxity blog, the game is soon to be sent off for certification with platform holders.

The Gearbox team isn’t sitting on its hands waiting for release day; it’s about to kick into DLC gear. The first piece is the game’s fifth class, the mechromancer, which will be offered two to three months after Borderlands 2′s September launch on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The new class will be free to members of the Premiere Club; membership is as simple as pre-ordering Borderlands 2, and will convey other benefits including a couple of weapons, a key to obtain a rare item, and the Vault Hunter’s Relic, which boosts luck in finding gear.

    I thought the new class would be free to everyone no matter if pre-ordered or not? (They would just get it later or something).

    Anyhow, PO’d longtime ago. CAN’T WAIT HOLY SHIT :D

    Don’t think that they ever said that. They said that she’d be released as DLC somewhere down the line, and then it was announced that pre-orders would come with a code to download it for free when she becomes available…

    Oh ok thanks for clarifying. I’m not even sure I’m superbly excited for the character after hearing about her abilities, but more variety is always a plus. And this game knows all about variety.

    Wait! So the reason for which I’m not already playing the game right now is because of console pricks!? Damn it! I knew it!
