Sir Hammerlock has a sibling and she’s the older sister that every little brother is terrified of. Lady Aurelia the Baroness is the newest playable character coming to Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel as a downloadable add-on. Starting on January 27, 2015 (January 28 in Europe and Asia), you’ll be able to pick up the Lady Hammerlock Pack on Linux, Mac, Windows PC on Steam.
If you’ve already picked up the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Season Pass, the Lady Hammerlock Pack is included, but for players that haven’t, the pack will also be sold on its own for $9.99. The Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Season Pass is available for $29.99 and grants access to all four add-on content packs – a $39.96 value! – as they become available on Xbox Live, PSN, Windows PC, Mac, and Linux. While each add-on content pack will be available for sale individually, the Season Pass offers all four packs for just about the price of three! The Season Pass also includes the previously-released Handsome Jack Doppelganger Pack, which makes Borderlands 2’s maniacal antagonist playable for the first time (or at least someone who looks an awful lot like him), as well as the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack: The Holodome Onslaught, which raises the level cap to 60 while offering a new challenge arena with new enemies, new weapons, new class mods, and new customization options.
Lady Hammerlock’s progression branch into Huntress, Cold Money and Contractual Aristocracy skill trees. Huntress focuses on sniping, offering a skill that dishes out critical hit bonuses for each consecutive shot on a target. Cold Money is all about ice damage, as made evident by one of its abilities implementing Cryo damage with any equipped weapon. Contractual Aristrocracy is all about status, as suggested by one of its unlockables reaping Lady Hammerlock bonuses from kills made by her peasant teammates.
When firefights call for desperate measures, Lady Hammerlock’s Cold As Ice action skill spawns a Frost Diadem Shard that chases down and latches onto targets, dealing constant damage until they finally keel over so that the shard can move onto its next target.
If you sat out The Pre-Sequel in hopes of a current-gen port but still want to freeze things to death as Lady Hammerlock, don’t fret – Borderlands Handsome Collection will include all season pass DLC when it arrives on March 24.
