At Gearbox's PAX East panel today, the company president Randy Pitchford revealed the "concept" for a new class in Borderlands 2 - the Mechromancer. The Mechromancer, which would be the fifth playable class in Borderlands 2, was previewed as a young cyborg girl who can control a large mechanized robot known as D374-TP, or "Deathtrap".
At this stage in development, the Mechromancer is only a concept.
"It doesn't exist yet," he said as he showed off concept art of a young, redheaded girl with pigtails, goggles, and a mechanical arm. Her companion, Deathtrap, was pieced together from several other robot parts.
The Mechromancer class will be "post-launch DLC", releasing about two months or so after the game's September launch. No pricing for the Mechromancer was announced, but fans who pre-order Borderlands 2 will receive her for free. For those who don't pre-order the game, Pitchford said he hopes to price it at a level that's "comparable to most DLC".
That's not all; as a thank you to fans who played the original Borderlands, Gearbox will be providing a unique head and skin for each class as a bonus.
A special edition of Borderlands 2 was also announced that will retail for $149.99. This special version comes packaged in a loot box from the game.

I tried the first game and didn't like it although I did pick the sniper class which made me struggle with the fights, the first boss was a nightmare to beat with a sniper rifle.
Might try it again with a different class in preparation for the next one an see how I go
If you picked Mordecai and went with the sniper tree you played him all wrong. He's way better as a Pistoleer / Pet Tamer hybrid class. Snipers are brutally inaccurate and with the online lag, there's no way you can play him properly. If you use auto-pistols you basically just spray enemies with them until they die....and die they shall.
As long as you have one of each type of pistol: normal, poison, fire, electric then he can solo everything in the game on the 1st and 2nd play through including all DLC, he's easily the best class in the game. It's sad that you picked the best class but chose to play him incorrectly...or rather, were mislead so easily by not reading skill descriptions and doing some simple math...pistols my man, PIS-TOLS.
