Gearbox has not been giving a lot of new details from Borderlands 2 so far at E3, but they did put out some new screenshots and character bios to wet gamers appetites.
Salvador is about as subtle, classy, and sane as one would imagine a native of Pandora to be. Which is to say: not at all. He loves blowing people up, getting paid, and laughing incessantly at the violence that surrounds him.
Gunzerking – Salvador can dual wield ANY gun in ANY combination. Want a sniper rifle and a rocket launcher? Go for it! Two guns are better than one!
Zer0 – Not much information is known about this mysterious being.
Deception – Zer0 can vanish into stealth, do massive critical hit damage and distract his enemies with a decoy. While in Deception, Zer0 can also see critical weak points on enemies or assassinate enemies with fast attacking melee strikes
Maya – Hailing from the planet of Athenas where she was once worshipped as a goddess, Maya has come to Pandora to learn more about her Siren heritage. And to melt her enemies with the power of her mind. But mainly the first thing.
Phaselock – Maya can lift and lock enemies in place where they sit helplessly out of battle and prone to damage. Phaselock can take many forms including healing party members, creating massive damage to enemies or for crowd controlling numerous enemies.
Axton was kicked out of the military for being too unpredictable – too much of a fun-loving glory hog. Rather than face certain death at a firing squad, he thought he’d retire to the one planet in the galaxy where his talents would be appreciated: Pandora.
Sabre Turret – Axton can deploy a turret which can be upgraded with many gun and missile attachments or augmentations. Some of these upgrades can grant the turret the ability to teleport far distances or create nuclear explosions!
