Borderlands 2’s downloadable Mechromancer character class will fire into the first-person shooter on 16th October, publisher 2K Games has announced. The character – officially named Gaige – will be available as a free download to anyone that pre-orders the title. Everyone else will have to pay £7.99/$9.99.

Gaige’s robotic arm will allow you to summon a tank which can be used to dispatch all manner of foes. Skags beware.
