Borderlands 2 is almost less than one month away. With that in mind, new trailers and more details are being revealed for everyone to get excited about. Borderlands 2 features four new classes: the Gunzerker, the Siren, the Commando and the Assassin. In addition, there’s the Mechromancer, a punk girl with ponytails who has the ability to summon Deathtrap, a robot. Within the Mechromancer’s skill tree, you have the ability to upgrade your companion, Deathtrap. One of which its abilities is an explosive clap that sandwiches opponents together than has a knock-back effect afterwards. Check out the latest video below featuring Handsome Jack and remember the Borderlands sequel will be releasing on September 18th for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 and the 21st for the UK.

You may have noticed Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchfordspeaking out against the “girlfriend mode” nickname on Twitter.

As reported below, the Mechromancer skill tree that helps video game newcomers is formally called Best Friends Forever. But Borderlands 2 lead designer John Hemingway referred to it numerous times as “girlfriend mode”.

“Borderlands 2 does NOT have a girlfriend mode,” Pitchford stated on Twitter. “Anyone that says otherwise is misinformed or trying to stir up something that isn’t there.

“The future DLC Mechromancer class has a skill tree that makes it easier for less skilled coop partners (any gender!) to play and be useful.”

Pitchford didn’t deny that Hemingway had said “girlfriend mode”. Instead, he labelled the term a “personal anecdote” that had been spun by the media.

“There is no universe where Hemingway is a sexist,” Pitchford added. “All the women at Gearbox would beat his and anyone else’s ass” (Eurogamer).
