Are you excited for the upcoming Borderlands 2 content? Probably not nearly as excited as Krieg is. The Psycho Bandit was confirmed back in March, and then sort of fell off the face of the planet until recently. Today, Gearbox announced that he'd be arriving May 14.
The announcement comes from an official Borderlands 2 account, which has seen a ton of odd posts lately heralding Krieg's arrival. Back in April, the posts suddenly took a nonsensical turn, which has continued since then. Today, a new post reads:

Accompanying the post is the image seen above, of crazy ol' Krieg with his new... friends. The guy does have a pretty darn interesting backstory attached. While he's insane, a voice in his head -- possibly a shadow of his former self -- prevents him from killing indiscriminately. Instead, Krieg only goes after those who deserve to die, with that little voice threatening to take over and force him to commit suicide if he ever lays a hand on an innocent.
Harsh. If you're interested in reading more random posts in '90s style typing, the Twitter account has been going pretty crazy today.
