Lady Hammerlock joins Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel cast out of sheer boredom

Sir Hammerlock's sister, Lady Hammerlock, will soon be joining the cast of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Why you ask? Well, because she's bored to tears.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel already has quite the cast of characters to play as, but today, 2K is announcing the latest addition to the game, and it’s the sibling of a character we all should know very well from Borderlands 2. I mean, who could forget Sir Hammerlock, right?

That’s right - Sir Hammerlock has a sibling. In fact, Sir Hammerlock is the younger brother of the heir to the Hammerlock family fortune: Lady Aurelia. Lady Hammerlock is a hoverbike riding hunter who is always looking for the latest and greatest game in the galaxy who is always looking to get into a conflict with her younger sibling, Alistair, or, Sir Hammerlock as we know him.

Lady Hammerlock has joined the cast of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel out of sheer bordeom, seeing as her turbomansion has grown cold and unloving, all the while her insatiable lust for violence has grown a great deal. Aurelia’s action skill is called Cold As Ice, which when used, allows her to throw a Frost Diadem Shard that seeks out her enemies, attaches to them, and constantly deals damage in the process. If the target dies as a result, the shard will move onto a new enemy and continue so long as it’s activated.

Lady Hammerlock features three skill trees: Huntress, Cold Money, and Contractual Aristocracy. The Huntress skill tree focuses on sniping, Cold Money focuses on ice damage, and Contractual Aristocracy allows her to turn a co-op teammate into a servant as she earns bonuses for their kills in addition to her own.

The Lady Hammerlock Pack will be included in the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Season Pass, although those who would prefer to purchase her by herself, the pack will retail for $9.99 and be available starting on January 27.

      It's cool they release new characters, but having to put in 60+ hrs per character just to finish the storyline 3 times is really annoying. They need to take a page from Diablo/Wow - you beat it once get some items that scale with your new character so you can blast through the 3 gameplay tutorial and enjoy the DLC/Side Missions/Loot Insanity
