During a recent panel at the South by Southwest Interactive conference, Gearbox teased its next batch of Borderlands DLC, which will include a new playable character.

Fans have already started to speculate that this new character could be a melee-focused fighter similar to Brick from the first Borderlands. Polygon has a bootleg of the teaser, which is basically just a bunch of art with some text that reads: Deep beneath Pandora, an experiment has escaped. Bandits beware, a new Vault Hunter is coming. More mayhem awaits.

Gearbox has always done a great job with its Borderlands-based DLC, so we can't wait to hear more about this upcoming content.

-----

it would be nice to see this new character packaged with an increase in level cap or something along the lines of that. will probably end up getting this depending on how the character plays.

Interesting.

I don't think I will end up buying the character but I never liked Brick in the first Borderlands. I haven't even played the last DLC and I can't see myself getting back into the game until the fourth DLC comes out.

I've got five level 50s just itching to get an increase.

Yeah BL2 is my all-time fav....ever....

Me too, haven't played in months though, still need to download Hammerlock's DLC, though the reviews kind of turned me off.

So that's what they were doing while they weren't making Aliens: Colonial Marines respectable.

I was pretty disappointed with Hammerlock dlc. Story was meh and was sort. Liked the dlc's they did for BLands 1 a lot better.
Plus that whole thing with A:CM left a bad taste with Gearbox.

Edit: I finished story and all dlcs solo. Only some of the raid bosses are impossible solo.

Did you play solo? Torgue's DLC was very close to being unplayable solo, and the reviews made Hammerlock sound even worse.

damn, I really enjoyed BL1 DLC...seems the consensus is that the BL2 dlc just isn't all that great

yeah i did. i just did a playthrough one run with my level 50 character. easy peasey.
i wanted the story and the achievements. didnt care about the tiny bit of loot and XP doesnt exist for a level 50 anyway.

Actually a lot complained that Torgue's DLC was too easy...

I disagree

"Did you play solo? Torgue's DLC was very close to being unplayable solo"

Really? I had much more trouble in Hammerlock. Torgue's was really cool and perfect for me. Could depend on your class and mods, though.

Well I haven't played Hammerlock so I can't really compare, but that's what I'm worried about lol.

The majority of Torgues was Ok, but the bosses and that tower thing leading up to the blimp boss were pretty frustrating.

Edit: I guess maybe I should have said it close to being un-fun, rather than un-playable.

same here.

I didn't think Torgue's was that bad but I played on normal with a level 50 character. The main quest that I think is ridiculous is the racing trophies since I couldn't get the last one.

Races were easy for me once I found a shortcut online.

That Buzzard quest to get the ship parts/cargo boxes(w/e) was absolutely impossible.

OP says:
Well, that and you won't be able to do it without the Afterburner relic you got from Ellie (?).

I hated the buzzard quest (and subsequent battles involving the buzzards), and I never finished the 3rd battle in the bar (the one where you have 90? seconds to clean the place out).

StriderNeo15 says:
I sold that relic and was able to beat all of those races, just youtube it.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 11, 2013 9:27:22 AM PDT
I used the shortcuts but I still can't come in on time. I am always 1-3 seconds past the time. I wasn't doing it with the relic though since I had sold it.

The Buzzard quest wasn't that bad for me. I think I had to retry the last one once but that was it.

Yeah my weapons weren't super great either, especially my corrosive ones.

It kind of hurts that I don't have Xbox Live gold so I can't get any gold keys.
