Leaked some time ago, the media campaign is finally starting up for Borderlands 2's next DLC campaign: Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage. Mr. Torgue himself has taken over the Twitter account that Gaige, the Mechromancer, used to introduce herself to the community. After over 30 days of no use, Mr. Torgue "hacked" the account and has endlessly posted caps-locked messages of "badassitude." Expect a release date announcement very soon, methinks.
In case you were wondering just what sort of character Mr. Torgue is, here's a look at some of his tweets so far:
"I NEED NEW PUNCTUATION THAT LOOKS LIKE AN EXPLOSION CAUSE PERIODS ARE TOO CALM AND EXCLAMATION MARKS LOOK LIKE AN UPSIDE DOWN LOWER CASE I"
"OKAY THE NEW EXPLOSION-BASED PUNCTUATION LOOKS LIKE THIS (><) AND REPRESENTS AN EXPLOSION NOISE WHICH IS HOW BADASSES END SENTENCES (><)"
"WAIT I TAKE IT BACK THAT LOOKS KINDA LIKE A SPHINCTER ABORT MISSION"
Mr. Torgue's latest tweet, in which he proclaims he's on Pandora setting up his "CAMPAIGN OF CARNAGE," has an image attached -- the first image from the upcoming DLC. That the image is of Mr Torgue himself isn't as interesting as the background sign: a lady holding up a checkered flag. Could Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage be built around a race of some sorts?
Expect an update on the Borderlands 2 DLC as soon as Mr. Torgue graces us with the details. Until then, check out his Twitter account and follow along with what should be a wild afternoon of ridiculousness (#badassitude).
Update: I can't watch this trailer because I just moved and my internet is unreliable, but I bet it's awesome!
