The Gearbox panel is currently underway at PAX East 2013 and the beleaguered developer has announced that the newest Borderlands 2 vault hunter will be known as Krieg the Psycho. Krieg, which is German for “war,” is a crazed berserker that is focused on melee combat. Krieg will be available in May for $10 (or 800 Microsoft Points for you Xbox 360 owners).
But sooner than that will be a new DLC content drop known as “The Ultimate Vault Hunter’s Pack.” Set for release on April 2, the pack will include a new gear tier, Pearlescent, an increase to the level cap (you can go to 61 now), and a third playthrough mode, the titular “Ultimate Vault Hunter’s” mode. The pack has been priced at $5 (or 400 points worth of Microsoft funny money). But if you’re a Season Pass holder, you’ll get it for free.
