Handsome Jack was easily one of the better aspects of Borderlands 2 and, though I personally still didn’t get on too well with the game, he brightened up my playthrough with a fair few chuckles at his more outlandish comments.
So, seeing as 2K Australia have already made Claptrap, another fan favourite, playable within The Pre-Sequel, it logically follows that they’d take another major NPC and make them playable too. Handsome Jack is going to be the first DLC character for the game. Well… sort of.
You see, Polygon are reporting that it won’t be the actual Handsome Jack, but will instead be one of his surgically altered body double. I guess that makes him pretty close to being Handsome Jack, but still allows for Jack to be an NPC within the game without collapsing the space-time continuum in around us all.
The new character is going to be part of the season pass which will contain four DLC packs in total, and will presumably be just a part of one of these. The Pre-Sequel itself is coming to PS3, 360 and PC on 17th October.
