Borderlands 2' fifth character class, the Mechromancer, was originally scheduled to launch on October 16. However, developer Gearbox Software has released the downloadable content pack a week early.
The class will release on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 today, with European owners of the latter due to receive it tomorrow.
Mechromancer's special ability triggers Deathtrap, a robot pet that can deliver considerable damage, as well as featuring tanking abilities.
The Mechromancer class is free for those who pre-ordered the game. For those who didn't, it's priced at £7.99/800 Microsoft Points.
