The PAX panel also showed off some of the customization that you can do with your characters.
So you've beaten 'Borderlands 2' over and over again, maxed out all your characters and gotten the best weapons – what to do next? Gearbox has the answer in post launch DLC, but not just a new quest hub or arena. They're introducing a whole new class.
The Mechromancer is a hybrid of human and machine - part woman, part robot. She also brings her own robot companion with her, named D374-TP, or Deathtrap. The Mechnomancer will be available after the September 18th launch of 'Borderlands 2' and will be free for anyone that's preordered the game.
There will also be options to customize your character with custom gear earned from completing challenges within the game. It's a safe bet that you'll be able to unlock new gear through DLC as well.
