Borderlands 2 Mechromancer DLC Out a Week Early, Some Users Reporting Patch Issues
Some patch issues for Xbox 360 users though.
UPDATE: Gearbox has released a statement on the bugs here.
If you’ve been following Gearbox, there’s a very good chance you’ve heard about this little lady and fifth character class. The long awaited Mechomancer class’ skill tree came out yesterday, with Gearbox President Randy Pitchford promising us a big surprise in 24 hours before that. Today it was announced that Gaige was available a week sooner than expected and would be released today.
Gaige's DLC was supposed to be released on October 16th but instead, after weeks of various videos detailing her ECHO logs (voice journals if you’re not up to par on Borderlands 2 vocab) and her very own twitter account, she’s out today for download across all systems.
However it’s been reported that some Xbox 360 users are encountering problems after applying the patch that prepared the game for Gaige. Users are reporting loss of the much coveted golden keys, customization options are being reset and losing items and Badass Ranks. This isn’t guaranteed to happen to everyone, as some Xbox users are reporting that the patch went through fine. It still may be safe to wait until Gearbox investigates to apply it if you are an Xbox user.
Gaige the Mechromancer is free for preorder members and $9.99 or 800 Microsoft points for everyone one else. You can also receive her when you buy the Season Pass for all four announced DLC packs for $30.
Are you going to pick up Gaige?
