When you think of Borderlands 2's latest DLC character, Krieg, any word beyond perhaps "MEAT" (yes, the capital letters are required) shouldn't pop into your head. Yet Gearbox's latest trailer for the psycho-turned-vault-hunter may give you pause. Who is this masked maniac? Is he just another psycho, or underneath all that insanity and likely unwashed armor is there a... bro? A bro that just wants to catcall Maya?
Now we have our answer. In a love story that's much better than Twilight we get a look into Krieg's inner monologue as he both slaughters unsuspecting soldiers and then fights his instincts to protect a pretty lady. It's... actually kind of endearing, beyond the random disgusting gibberish he still shouts randomly. If I thought for a second Borderlands 2 could manage any sort of character arch for their playable heroes, I might be forced to buy Krieg.
That shouldn't stop you, however! Krieg is now available for Borderlands 2 on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Pick up up and power level him so he's ready for the release of Season 1's final campaign DLC, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep.
