Borderlands 2: Psycho Pack Introduces New Playable Character
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media recently released the latest Borderlands 2 downloadable content, the Psycho Pack, which features a 6th playable character, Krieg the Psycho Bandit. The new character makes use of a giant axe and can rampage for extra melee damage and health regeneration for every kill.

What slices, dices, breathes fire and blows himself up?

Introducing the newest Vault Hunter and 6th character class in Borderlands 2, Krieg! Take a peek at Pandora from behind the menacing eyes of Krieg, the Psycho Bandit, an all-new character and the 6th playable class in Borderlands 2. You’ve fought against them as enemies, now use that aggressive energy on the vault hunter’s side. Slice, dice, light yourself on fire and blow things up – taking damage was never so rewarding – or so much fun!

Krieg uses a giant buzz axe for his action skill, going on a rampage with increased melee damage and instant health regeneration on each kill. Krieg is also unique in that the more damage he takes, the sooner he can use his action skill, thus the deadlier he becomes. His skill trees focus on a mix of stacking combat bonuses in Bloodlust, melee and explosive combat in Mania, and lighting himself on fire in Hellborn. Unlike any previous Vault Hunter, Krieg provides a great way to explore Pandora all over again!

Borderlands 2: Psycho Pack is available now for $9.99 (USD).

Discussing Shadowrun Returns
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

VG247 recently posted a new interview with Harebrained Schemes's Jordan Weisman about the company's upcoming 2D turn-based RPG, Shadowrun Returns. The game will return players to the Shadowrun universe which features a mixture of cyberpunk tech and high fantasy magic.

The game’s futuristic Seattle of 2054 is going to be teeming with plot strands, dangers lurking in every alley and an assortment of enemies waiting to be engaged in combat. There will be much to consider, but Weisman stressed the game still won’t hold your hand. This is meant to be a tough experience for dedicated players.

“Call it respect for the audience or call it old-school gamer mentality but we’re honestly not hand-holding people through a bunch of training on the mechanics,” he said. “Once upon a time, there was fun in exploring and experimenting. We hope to give players enough info to get them rolling and understanding the basics.”
