The developer of the recent smash hit Borderlands 2 has released the new character class via DLC - a whole week early.

Gearbox Software have released DLC to include Gaige the Mechromancer. Although this was originally set for release on October 16, 2012, the kind people have bought the release date forward by a week.

If you have the pre-order bonus of the Premiere Club, you'll get the class for free. If you're not a member of the Premiere Club, the DLC will set you back £7.99 for PS3 or 800 MS for Xbox 360.
