At PAX East Gearbox revealed the sixth playable class for Borderlands 2 – Krieg the Psycho. Mostly a melee character, he also has a few ranged abilities and three development skill threes – Bloodlust, Mania and Hellborn. Krieg will be available as part of the psycho pack in May for 9.99 US Dollars(800 Microsoft points).
The game will also be getting a level cap increase in the form of the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade pack which will be available on April 2. Once you acquire it the max level in the game will be 61, up from 50. This will cost you $5(free if you’re a season pass owner).
Borderlands 2 – Sixth Playable Character Class Coming in May
More mayhem awaits on Pandora, and soon players will have an all new vault hunter to shoot and loot their way through Borderlands 2 with! The Psycho Pack will be available in May for $9.99 (800 Microsoft points) and introduces Krieg, the new Psycho Bandit character class, further expanding the four-player cooperative shooter-looter experience.
Wielding a buzz axe and harnessing his psychotic multiple personalities, Krieg is a badass melee mauler with ranged attack capabilities that can rip foes to shreds with his deadly Buzz Axe Rampage action skill. Players can stack combat bonuses with Krieg’s Bloodlust skill tree, live on the edge of insanity with the Mania tree, or engulf both enemies and yourself in flames with the Hellborn tree.
Vault Hunters can also shoot and loot their way to new heights in Borderlands 2 when the level cap is raised to 61 on April 2 via the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack – included as part of the Season Pass. In addition to increasing the level cap from 50 to 61, the upcoming downloadable content pack will also unlock a third play through via the new Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode!
