Krieg the Psycho Bandit (if that’s even his real name) is making his way to “Borderlands 2” later this month according Gearbox. Unfortunately, the game’s sixth playable character will not be part of the Season Pass.
If you’ve watched any of the teaser footage you probably already know that Krieg is one craaaazy fellow. Brandishing a buzz axe and a variety of psychotic personalities, the series’ first playable bandit is melee-focused fighter. His skill trees — Bloodlust, Mania and Hellborn (which kind of speak for themselves) allow the up-close and personal brawler to get stronger as he fights with his axe, takes damage or is set on fire, respectively. So, yea. He’s definitely a psycho.
What may disappoint many is the fact that Krieg the Psycho Bandit is not a part of the “Borderlands 2″ Season Pass, meaning everyone who wants him, regardless of how much they’ve already spent on the game and DLC, will have to cough up another $9.99.
The “Borderlands 2″ Psycho Pack DLC will be available beginning May 14th.
