Initially, the Mechromancer DLC for Borderlands 2 was set for October 16, which is one week from today.

But some fans have noticed that in fact, the new class is available to download today. In fact, it's available for all platforms and Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford confirmed that it ain't no mistake :

"So – here's the surprise, Mechromancer for Borderlands 2 is ready about a week earlier than I promised. Oct 9, all platforms. Woo!"

If you pre-ordered the game, you'll be able to grab this extra content for no extra charge. If you didn't, it'll cost you $9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points to give the interesting new class a try. Gaige the Mechromancer has the potential to be crazy powerful, as she can summon a huge robot to do her bidding (as seen in the pic here). As she progresses, she'll be able to nail enemies with nasty negative status effects, and she'll also be able to buff up other players as well.

If you want to test out her advancement ahead of time, head over to that awesomely convenient skill tree test at the game's official website. That's a feature we need for any and all games with skill trees for characters.

This just makes me angry. Best Buy messed up the PS3 preorders, so they sent me the preorder code for the PC version. It's been three weeks and I'm STILL trying to get it corrected.

WOW. Look just looking at the ordered chaos branch shows just how versatile this character will be… kinda makes my head spin!

I think I will avoid that branch since I prematurely reload all the time. Makes those guns that explode like grenades when you reload off limits to me because I waste too much ammo!

Best Friends Forever skill tree section makes it seem like this character can be an OP juggernaut, especially adding in a bit of the Little Big Trouble tier for extra elemental resist or damage percentage.

Might have to take a break from levelling Zer0 and give this class a whirl.

I wish he used swords, but that's also who I'm leveling up as well. I haven't been able to play much but i believe I'm level 18 or so.
