Recently, Gearbox released a short vid describing a bit of the backstory for Krieg, our not-so-friendly Psycho in Borderlands 2. Not much more is given about his origins, but we do get to hear more of his sane side than we do in typical gameplay. Perhaps we’ll just leave it as that: He used to be a normal guy, but Hyperion conducted experiments on him until he broke. Happy hacking!!
As of the publishing this, the 6th playable character class for Borderlands 2 has been active for over a day.

As a new twist, the folks over at Gearbox will allow us to play as Krieg, a Psycho Bandit, complete with one of those freaky looking Buzz Axes! Check the new and updated trailer for the release:
So here we have Krieg who is obviously all sorts of ready to dole out some Pandoran Harshness. He is wielding a modified Buzz Axe in his right hand and his left has a bolted gauntlet that is connected to his back (I think?). He’s rocking the typical Psycho Bandit garb, which is essentially bare-chested desert punk, and has a gas-mask breather on top of his Borderlands inspired hockey mask.
