Mechromancer DLC is Borderlands 2 Preorder Bonus

Gearboxity has a follow-up to the news from PAX East about plans to add a fifth playable class to Borderlands 2 via post-release DLC. This clarifies that this Mechromancer content will be a preorder bonus for the role-playing shooter sequel, and paid content for everyone else:
As a special thank you to our early supporters, the Mechromancer will be available as a free download to members of the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, which you can gain access to by pre-ordering Borderlands 2 from a participating retailer. The Mechromancer will also be available as premium downloadable content for those who aren't Premiere Club members at the same time. For more details on the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club, please visit this thread and borderlands2.com/preorder.

But don't worry, an entire character class is being developed by a completely separate team! It's not like they are taking anything from the main game or anything. You don't have to do stuff like balance the game for different classes. So this is totally ok!

When they announced it, all they had was concept art... If you choose to flat-out disbelieve what they've said about it being a brand new idea, late in development when they're pushing hard to meet their target date with the existing workload (not to mention assume they won't be taking the time to properly balance it), that's your problem.
