Borderlands 2's fifth character class, the Mechromancer, is available free to anyone who pre-orders the game ahead of its September 21 release in Europe. Anyone not pre-ordering will have to wait 60 days for the DLC to appear online before buying.
VG247's Sam Clay is en route to Gamescom in a Borderlands 2 bus, and was given the information by a 2K rep.
The Mechromancer class will be available on all formats - PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 - from launch to all pre-order players who are members of the Gearbox Premier Club.
