Gearbox are freaking Epic. Good to see a game design company that cares more about the games they make than the money they make!

There should be warning labels for people whose body are not ready.


My body wasn't ready, after this I immediately pre-ordered. Companies like Gearbox makes me glad to be a broke-ass gamer (whose still gonna shell out on the best collectors edition JUST for how much they deserve it).

EDIT: Wait is this pre-order dlc? Because that's the word floating around.

BTW: It has been mentioned via Gamesradar (and backed up via Kotaku) that this character will be Pre-order and paid DLC, and available 2 to 3 months after release.

Gamesradar Article

Kotaku Article - Mainly on the Special Editions, but there is a blurb clarifying when and how you get the character.

Wow, so yeah. The original sources I had for this all reported it being free DLC. The two I specifically recall saying so have since reworded their articles to be more... ambiguous, or straight up say it's paid DLC if you don't preorder.

Yeah, it's really disappointing. But still, I'm pre-ordering and will be busy with the 4 main classes for at least 2 months anyway.

Besides, a whole new playable character is entirely worth the money (so long as it isn't a terrible class, and so long as they don't ask for too much money).
