I honestly think she should of been in the original 4 instead of Maya. Theres no way 3 sirens (if Steele was one) out of the only 6 in the galaxy/universe would, by chance, all be on Pandora let alone be another vault hunter.

Although she does seem to be a female counterpart of Axton but instead of turrets she has a moving machine instead

She left to Pandora to find more about her heritage (as did Lilith) so it's clear there's something that connects Pandora to Sirens. Not hard to consider since it's home of the Protheans. Also Lilith is going to be taking on the role of the guardian angel so if anything a new siren coming to her for answers makes way MORE sense than a girl with a giant robot coming to her for answers... or any of the others for that matter.

And the mechromancer looks sweet - love the idea. Sort of bringing in the concept of a summoner or conjuration into the gameplay of borderlands.

Lilith never left Pandora, she wasn't born on it, she came with her friends she grew up with on another planet to find the Vault as they grew up to become vault hunters. It's why most NPCs in the game call the vault hunters "off worlders".

Lilith isn't taking over the role as the Guardian Angel, the old Guardian Angel actress is coming back, Lilith will just have a few live action cutscenes during the game for whatever reason.

I meant to say left their homeworlds/usual business FOR pandora.

Carl_Shocker2112d ago

I can't believe people are actually disagreeing with me

Go and check what i've said's all true

Jeez....stay classy N4G

Lilith went to Pandora from a distant planet in search of another Siren.

Maya went to Pandora from her planet(where she was idolized as a god) to discover more about her siren heritage.

Lilith does have live action sequences because she can project her image in your head like the Guardian Angel.

Then who would take on the healer role and elemental role? Besides i always thought the vault had something special to sirens my first play AND it might still be true. Also Lilith is here, and the reason Lilith is in Pandora is cause she was looking for a 3rd siren (not 100% sure if it was C. Steel) so with 2 sirens in Pandora why wouldn't Maya travel to it? Or maybe just Lilith but that could be more than enough for Maya to talk to Lilith.

So no Maya should not ever had been removed.

This is going to be the second time i buy DLC, the first being the KZ3 Capture trooper skin on U3. Gaige sound likes a fun unique character :D

Dread2113d ago

you do not have to buy it if your pre-order the game

Lubu2113d ago

Just preorder the game, and she'll be free.

r212112d ago

Not in my country. We dont have such incentives.

strange19862113d ago

Sweet lord this game is going to be nuts. more week.

tdinc2113d ago

BL is a over rated game

mcnablejr2113d ago

You're overrated and lame.

KingMe422112d ago

Nah man. Skyrim was over rated.

CrimsonessCross2113d ago (Edited 2113d ago )

I <3 her final design! :D I can't wait to play Gaige! :3 <333
Ugh...I'm going to be playing every class at launch, but commit to one that interests me the most. Right now it's probably Maya/(Gaige)/Zero/Axton/Salvad or for me in that order :3

CrimsonessCross2113d ago

It wouldn't let me correct Salvador's name every time I tried to save the edit =_= thanks N4G! :P

ShinraE52113d ago

I have a hard time committing to one character after checking out the skill tress on the site. And this characters confirmed name and look (as well as class) have me curious about her as well !

Looks like I will be doing several BL2 run throughs, as each class looks to offer up a lot of fun.

CrimsonessCross2113d ago

Me too, I looked through most but I think I kind of forget what some did :) so I'll be surprised about what they have to offer again.

It doesn't hurt to do many run throughs anyways :3 as long as you enjoy the game and it'll show you really enjoy the game if I/we can put in that much time :) the only game that hurts (at least in my mind) and is torture is Diablo 3 :D
Those run throughs got so old and boring! >.<

I am getting it for PC. I can't wait to be able to inspect my obtained weapons, screenshot them and database them heh :) it's going to take up so much space.
