While Borderlands 2 may not be out until later this year, why not start planning DLC now right? I mean… the title has obviously not reached its gold state yet so why start planning DLC already? Well you don’t need to worry about that, because this DLC will be released entirely free after the game comes out.
Gearbox has revealed to Destructoid after the Pax East panel where the Mechromancer was revealed that the content will be available 60-90 days after the game is released and anyone who pre-orders the game will get the content for free. The class itself is still in its concept stage so it will likely have a different appearance when it is released, though the overall concept will still be the same.
