‘Handsome Jack Doppelgänger Pack’ Makes Jack a Playable Character


[dropcap size=small]F[/dropcap]or all of you who were thrilled when it was announced that Claptrap would be a playable character in the new Borderlands, here’s another cause for excitement: Handsome Jack will now be a playable character to those of you who elect to get the new DLC Handsome Jack Doppelgänger Pack.

Oh, so handsome.
Oh, so handsome.

If the name of this DLC strikes you as odd, here’s why: you won’t actually be playing as Handsome Jack, but rather an equally handsome body double Jack. Some of the special abilities for this character include the ability to summon other slightly less handsome Jacks to fight for you, and those Jacks will receive special abilities of their own depending on how you progress up through the skill tree. You’ll also receive buffs when you pick up cash from skirmishes, get special upgrades while using weapons from certain manufacturers, and of course, be able to shoot wrist lasers to strike down enemies.

There are three other DLC packs in the works from 2K Australia, which they say they have been working on since the day the main game was completed. You’ll be able to purchase the Handsome Jack Doppelgänger Pack, as well as the three other upcoming DLC packs, for $10 as they come out. Or, you’re able to purchase the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Season Pass for $30 and receive each DLC as it comes out. For you mathematicians in attendance, that’d be a $10 savings.

The Handsome Jack Doppelgänger Pack DLC will be available for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 11th.
