A trailer released today for Borderlands 2 introduces Krieg the Psycho, "a mass of rage and abdominal muscles" set to land on Pandora today through downloadable content.
Check out the video above to learn about Krieg's action skill, Buzz Axe Rampage, which siphons health every time you kill an enemy. You'll also see his preference for close quarters combat, ballistic weapons, gun bonuses you can earn on his skill tree and his ultimate offensive upgrade, which makes enemies explode.
Borderlands 2's sixth playable character is available now in the Psycho Pack DLC for $9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points. The first-person shooter's next expansion, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, will launch June 25.
The latest trailer for Borderlands 2 further demonstrates the volatility of the game's sixth playable character Kreig the Psycho Bandit, his arsenal, skill tree upgrades and risk versus reward combat style.
Equipped with a Buzz Axe and explosives, Krieg's action skill is Buzz Axe Rampage. The new vault hunter will also come with three skill trees: Mania increases his damage as he takes damage; Bloodlust powers up Krieg when killing with his Buzz Axe; and Hellborn increases his lethality with fire while he's on fire.
Krieg the Psycho Bandit arrives May 14 as part the Psycho Pack DLC and will cost $9.99. The shooter's next downloadable expansion, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, will be released on June 25.

This will be the sixth playable character in Borderlands 2 — the game includes four Vault Hunters, and Gearbox added Gaige, the Mechromancer, last October. From the teaser trailer, the new character appears to be built for melee attacks in brutal close-quarters combat. The lore behind the character is that it's an experiment that has escaped from deep beneath the surface of Pandora.
Gearbox added that the DLC will also include a level cap increase. For all the details on the new...
