The picture says it all, really (click to embiggen), but here's a quick roundup to justify my existence. Gearbox has announced that the Mechromancer DLC pack will release on October 16th, costing $9.99, 800 Microsoft Points or absolutely nothing for pre-order customers. You'll get a new character who can summon and control a powerful robotic guardian, with one of her skill trees designed to make the gunplay more accessible to newcomers.
Also, her name is Gaige.
Borderlands 2 releases on September 21st in Europe. Next Friday. Bring it.
