Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, First DLC Play as 'Handsome Jack'

The new DLC for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Handsome Jack Doppelganger Pack, lets you play as Handsome Jack, well kind of. Instead you play as Jack the Doppelganger.

On 11th November if you own Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel you will be able to get the Handsome Jack Doppelganger Pack. Season Pass owners will have it included, so you will have it for 'free'.

 For those who don't know, doppelganger basically means, a copy of.

The pack does not allow you to play as Handsome Jack per say, but a Doppelganger of Jack.

Jack has stood by for far too long watching the Vault Hunters go on exciting adventures, so he’s decided to join in on the fun…sort of.

As Jack Doppelganger your Action Skill is the ability to summon multiple Digi-Jacks, these are extra copies of Jack who are a bit more digital looking. They will join you in battle to help you, and friends, dispatch enemies and get some "more sweet, sweet loot".

As well as Digi-Jacks being able to earn you some bonuses in loot, they can get you another chance to Fight For Your Life. The system that allows you to recover some health and shields, after you have lost all your health, without having to respawn.

Other additions Jack Doppelganger has is that you can get are some buffs when any money is picked up, and you can also get upgrades from specific manufacturers' guns when you are using them. And lastly you will get the ability to use wrist lasers to fire your foes.

As this is coming soon, you may want to get your practice in early for any Handsome Jack esque witty banter you may want to have with your friends.

"Where ya goin'? Get back here and play with me... but not like that."
