Lady Hammerlock will be playable in Borderlands The Pre-Sequel this week

Borderlands Lady Hammerlock

With skill trees favouring sniping and Cryo damage

Lady Aurelia the Baroness, also know as Lady Hammerlock will be available to add to your Borderlands The Pre Sequel toons this week.

From 27th January, 28th January in the UK, the Lady Hammerlock pack will be available to download for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on Steam, lady Hammerlocks announcement blurb reads:

“Aurelia is the heir of the Hammerlock family fortune, but when she’s not riding her hoverbike through the endless hallways of her orbital turbomansion, she’s out hunting the latest and greatest game in the galaxy,” Gearbox explains. “If these expeditions should put her in conflict with her younger brother Alistair – aka Sir Hammerlock – all the better. The only thing more fun than shooting a rare animal Alistair intended to study is the look of abject horror and surprise on his face once Aurelia wears its carcass like a jaunty scarf.

“Normally, Lady Hammerlock would never be seen within a light year of Pandora, but she’s grown bored as her turbomansion grows cold, while her lust for violence grows hot. She’s headed to Elpis with nothing more than an expensive gun, an experimental Cryo diadem, and a powerful belief that shooting angry things in the face is a good deal of fun.”

Aurelia’s start-out action skill is called Cold As Ice, which throws out a Frost Diadem Shard that attaches to enemies dealing out damage over time. If the first target is killed the shard will move on to new enemies until one doesn’t die from the damage.

The Pre-Sequel’s new character’s skill trees are called Huntress, Cold Money and Contractual Aristocracy. The Huntress centres on sniping and Cold Money on Cryo damage, which she can eventually add to every gun. Contractual Aristocracy allows Lady Hammerlock to make other players she’s teamed up with into her servants giving out bonuses for their kills and hers.

A fourth and final installment of DLC is also coming to The Pre-Sequel with a new campaign set within the mind of Claptrap
