If I read that right, and I hope I did, the new character will be apart of the fourth DLC. That would be AWESOME for the people who got the Season Pass. --- I have Dysarthria. It's a Speech problem. Your question is answered now.
It is said on multiple sites that it WILL be apart of the fourth DLC but at the same time I'm hearing from the community it may not be apart of the 4th DLC. It's hard to say, really. I guess we'll see when it comes out, wont we. --- Bow down and kiss the ring.
@DuvalMagic Will 6th character be a stand alone release like Gaige, with no other added content? 4:45pm - 9 Mar 13
From Randy Pitchford:
@SaintOfOwnage yes 7:15pm - 9 Mar 13
Well, you could read that as it will be the 4th DLC... but with no maps/levels. --- XBL GT: Ki11er Six (ONES - not L's with a space between the word) Borderlands 2 farming guides: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE35BE032DF764AEC
So IGN got me hopes up for nothing then. Well, I've heard rumors that the next character might be melee based. If so, then I don't care about it then. I'm not a melee fan. That's why Zero was my last character to play as. I focused on his Sniping tree. --- I have Dysarthria. It's a Speech problem. Your question is answered now.
Specifically, read the Update at the end. All the stories were originally published saying the character would be included with the Season Pass DLC, but some of them followed up and did some fact checking, which is also what the tweet from Randy Pitchford was about.
