Krieg is an upcoming playable class Gearbox is adding to Borderlands 2. This new class looks pretty awesome and does a few things differently. With the other classes when you run out of life, if you can come back to life immediately if you make a kill. With Krieg when you run out of life he switches to suicide mode where he can toss around dynamite sticks and blow himself up to try and take out bad guys. The video above illustrates the class really well so I recommend you check it out.

Krieg will be available for purchase today 5/14/2013.

The official launch trailer and information are available now:

I can't say I've ever seen one of those psycho guys and said to myself, "Gee, I wish I could play as one of them!"

However, after looking through the skill trees, he does seem to be an interesting character and I would like to give him a try at some point. However, I won't be picking up the new class at this time. I might wait for the price to drop. I'm already going to be getting the next expansion as part of my season pass and I still have yet to finish the 3rd DLC, so I have plenty BL2 to keep me busy for now. Plus the idea of going through the main storyline with a new character again is not that appealing. :\

Watching the video, that's almost exactly how I normally play first person shooters, so I'm interested in Krieg.

I still don't own BL2, but maybe at the next big sale I'll pick it up.

@adym Id wait till the Game of the Year or as you say, a sale. Reason is the base game + all the DLC will run you about $100 so waiting is good :D
