We have all been waiting not-so-patiently for the all new Mechromancer Borderlands 2 character to drop. Well today is your lucky day, the Mechromancer class is available for download across all platforms today!

Gearbox has confirmed that the Mechromancer DLC will drop today, a week earlier than orignially scheduled. We have been playing Borderlands 2 non stop since it launched and are super excited about the new character. Whats so exciting about this new chick you ask?

Gaige is the new playable character, she is a Mechromancer, which means she has mad robotic skills and comes with her own sidekick called Deathtrap. Gaige is an interesting character who feels liek a mashup of Lilith with the attitude and hairstyle and the crazy Tiny Tina the mad scientist NPC from the Borderlands 2 story.

Deathtrap looks like a kick ass sidekick and add to that the all new skill tree for Gaige and you can see why this is so exciting. You can check out her skill tree here: http://www.borderlands2.com/us/skilltree/mechromancer.html

As we mentioned the DLC is available on all platforms—Xbox 360, PS3, PC— and you should be able to download the Mechromancer by the end of today (October 9th). If you pre-ordered the game then you get the Gaige DLC for free, if not you can purchase the content for $10 or 800 MS points.
