All Systems Go For Mechromancer DLC
Borderlands 2 is now totally finished, Gearbox announced today, and has entered certification with platform holders. Now that the base game is out of their hands, Gearbox are free to focus on DLC, specifically the post-launch Mechromancer class.
"Today, we have some exciting new to share about Borderlands 2, " Gearbox proudly confirmed on Gearboxity, "the game is headed to certification!"
"This means that the game’s on-disc content has been locked down and will be thoroughly tested to ensure it is ready for release -– in other words, the game is finished and we cannot make any further changes to the game."
The studio is now freed up to devote the entirety of their time and resources to post-launch DLC, the first of which will be the Mechromancer class. This robot-commanding mechanic will be made available two to three months after Borderlands 2 comes out, and will be free for pre-order Premier Club members.
"The team is now shifting their focus towards post-launch efforts, including the Mechromancer: the new character class that will be released as FREE downloadable content to members of the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club roughly 60 to 90 days after launch," the post continues.
