If you've checked out my Borderlands 2 review you'll see I'm beyond in love with the game's cast of characters and voice acting. Sadly, while the four playable characters in-game do have an amount of backstory to them, it's difficult to really get to know them and empathize with their actions. Gearbox is working on changing that with their fifth playable character, the DLC and preorder bonus Gaige the Mechromancer, by leading into her release with a series of audio logs. Be prepared for hilarity.
Gaige the Mechromancer will be fully released on October 16, where she will be free for members of the Premiere Club -- membership of which came free for those who pre-purchased Borderlands 2. The Mechromancer's DLC will otherwise cost $9.99/800MSP. Her special ability is the summoning of giant robot D374-TP (Death Trap), which sounds pretty amazing -- at least in text.
Borderlands 2 is available now on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
