Borderlands 2 Mechromancer next Month

Gearbox Software revealed at PAX plans to release the planned Mechromancer DLC for Borderlands 2 on October 16th, adding the promised 5th class to the RPG/shooter, reports Kotaku. It was recently announced that a season pass will provide access to four DLC packs for the game, and Gearbox tweets a follow-up clarifying that the Mechromancer pack is separate from this: "No, Season Pass does not include Mechromancer -- she'll be available separately for those that don't get her free with pre-order."

Looks like I won't get the Mechromancer for free, as technically I didn't pre-order. Not a big deal, since the class looks kinda dumb to me anyway, but I wonder if NOT having it will prohibit playing with people who DO have it?

I don't believe you'll miss out on it. Like I said, it's likely in every single first shipment. Day One DLC is typically like this, as it's just cheaper to put it in all of your initial batch then to figure out exactly how many units will be preordered. I bought Red Dead Redemption 2 months after launch but still got the standard preorder bonuses because it was a first shipment copy.

I'm not sure if that's true for digital copies, since it can be managed, but I'd guarantee it is for the consoles. It was announced as "Day One DLC," which means it's available to all who buy Day One, so it's in all of the initial shipment (I'd guess 3-5MM for this game.) I'd also be less certain about free, bundled copies.

But I wouldn't count yourself out yet.
