PSA: Borderlands 2 Mechromancer…Romances Oct. 9th, Plot Your Skill Trees Now

The CEO of Gearbox and overall nice guy Randy Pitchford announced earlier tonight that the upcoming Mechromancer class for Borderlands 2 will be dropping into Pandora a week earlier than scheduled. As posted by Game Informer, Gaige and her robot pal Deathtrap will be hitting the digital stores, “… by the end of today,” as tweeted by Pitchford.

Gaige was initially introduced before the game’s release as a part of the Premier Club Pack, obtained by pre-ordering the game. She’ll be available for the folks that purchased the game after September 8th for $9.99, or 800 Microsoft Points.

Also released today were her skill trees, which you can tinker with on the game’s website. For the life of me I can’t figure out her Ordered Chaos tree and its Anarchy system. I can stack Anarchy, but then I lose it if I reload early, but can gain more for every one I get but can lose…gahhh. I’ll just stick with the Girlfriend Tree. Go have fun folks, and let us know what you think of Gaige in the comments.
