So, the days of the one-hot-chick-three-beefy-dudes in the Borderlands universe are over. The Mechromancer, featured in the picture above, will join the cast of Gearbox's upcoming crawler-shooter. And she is bringing a scrappier, more hands-dirty, femininity to balance out the game's heavy masculine overtones. She's part robot, part human, and also a little scary looking.

Along with her, attendees at PAX East this weekend learned that the game will feature some significant character customization across all the characters, with clothing and armor articles that will be earned as the story plays out.

Borderlands 2 will release September 18, 2012. The Mechromancer isn't going to make the release date, but she'll be available for free to all pre-orderers, and after the fact for a price.
