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.

Yeah, you might be right; it's possible Steam will still get me a DLC code upon release. I'm not too worried about it either way. Like I said, the Mechromancer looks kinda weird anyway, and the whole "girlfriend mode" thing (purely from a gameplay perspective) really doesn't make me go "OMG MUST HAVE!!!"
