The sixth playable character class for Borderlands 2, Krieg the Psycho Bandit, will be released May 14 as the Psycho Pack downloadable content, Gearbox Software announced today.
Officially unveiled in March at PAX East, Krieg is a reformed version of the Psycho enemy from Borderlands who wields an axe and explosives to dispatch foes. He'll come with three skill trees: Bloodlust, which powers up Krieg when killing with his Buzz Axe; Mania, which increases his damage as he takes damage; and Hellborn, which increases his lethality with fire while he's on fire.
Krieg the Psycho Bandit will cost $9.99. Gearbox released Borderlands 2's fifth playable class, Gaige the Mechromancer, as a downloadable add-on in October at the same price.
Gearbox announced the game's next downloadable expansion, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, will be released on June 25.
