Hopefully you Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel fans were keeping a close eye on the news out of PAX South over the weekend as it looks like Lady Hammerlock is joining the rogue's gallery of characters you can play in the game starting tomorrow (1/27/15). For those not in the know Lady Hammerlock happens to be Sir Hammerlock's sister whom he himself has a bit of fear of. I'm guessing jealousy as well as Lady Hammerlock is the heiress to the Hammerlock fortune leaving her to be able to buy all of those cool toys we will be using to freeze and destroy the inhabitants of Pandora coming up soon.
As the story goes for Lady Hammerlock, or Lady Aurelia the Baroness, she has grown board and needs to let out some of her anger on the universe. She has thus left her turbomansion and Elpis is the right place to shoot things in the face. For fun and technically profit but that is a completely different story here. She also has three skill trees as one would assume. Lady Hammerlock's Huntress skill tree focuses on sniping, including a skill that offers a massive critical hit bonus for each consecutive hit she lands without missing. Her other skill tree, Cold Money, focuses on ice damage and includes a skill that can add Cryo damage to any gun. Her third skill tree is Contractual Aristocracy, which allows her to turn a co-op teammate into a servant, earning her bonuses for their kills in addition to her own.
If you've picked up the Season pass for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel then you should know that the Lady Hammerlock DLC is already included and will be available for the download here soon. If not the Lady Hammerlock DLC will be sold for $9.99 so everyone can see the lady that has Sir Alistair Hammerlock shaking in his boots. Not out of just fear but all of that cold and ice queen mumbo jumbo that Lady Hammerlock will have with here in form of her Cryo diadem. Have a taste of what that will look like for now and wait a few more hours to have another character to rampage with.
