Borderlands 2

At Gamescom 2012, G4's Eric "EE" Eckstein got his hands-on Borderlands 2's Mechromancer class, and found its robotic pets and high-explosives very enjoyable. If you want an early look into this character class' abilities, weapons and overall playstyle, we've got you covered.

Here's a taste of Eric's Borderlands 2 preview.

"First off, the Mechromancer, a riff on the Necromancer class seen in other games. Borderlands 2’s take has her summoning a ‘pet’ as her action ability, however that pet takes the form of Deathtrap, a devastating robot that rips enemies to shreds and can be upgraded to cause explosive area attacks. While the Mechromancer’s skills are still to be honed, expect to see skill trees dedicated to boost Deathtrap as an offensive weapon, as well as other non-pet skills that yield different gameplay styles."

Check out the rest of our Borderlands 2 Mechromancer preview for a look sneak peek at Borderlands 2 boss Terramorphous the Invincible!
