The good news for Borderlands fans? Gearbox Software posted up word this week that the content portion of the FPS-RPG sequel, Borderlands 2, is over and done with. The game is now heading for certification for its console versions. While the game still needs to go through the QA process, Gearbox added, " ... the game is finished and we cannot make any further changes to the game."
In a post on the Gearbox community site, the team says that work has now begun on the first DLC pack for Borderlands 2, which will be released for free for anyone who pre-orders any version of the game. "Premiere Club" members will be able to get the DLC pack between 60 and 90 days after the sequel's release.
The DLC will include a number of in-game weapons and items, along with an all new character class, the Mechromancer. Specific details about this new class have yet to be revealed, although the image in the pre-order offer suggests that this new class knows their way around hardware.
Borderlands 2 is set for release on the PC and other platforms on September 18th in the US. While the PC version won't include any SDK mod tools, Gearbox will not discourage mod makers from tinkering with the PC build.
