Handsome Jack is stepping out of the boardroom and into the line of fire with the new Handsome Jack Doppelganger Pack DLC for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!, announced yesterday.

New Details About The Lord Of The Hunt DLC For Shadow Of Mordor

The DLC pack, the first of four for the game's season pass, was announced today by 2K. The pack will introduce a brand new playable character: someone who looks an awful lot like Handsome Jack. You didn't think the powerful CEO would risk getting himself killed, would you? The closest he can offer is this Handsome Jack look-alike. But the look-alike is able to spawn two digital copies of himself ("Digi-Jacks"), allowing him to create an army of Handsome Jacks that help in battle. That has to count for something.

The Handsome Jack Doppelganger comes with his own skill trees, much of which emphasizes his ties to the corporate world. When he's not shooting enemies in the head with the blasters on his wrist, Jack can give himself upgrades for using weapons from certain companies or just give himself a boost whenever he picks up money.

The Handsome Jack Doppelganger Pack is available as part of the game's $29.99 season pass. It can also be purchased solo for $9.99. It goes live November 11.

Other bonuses planned to be included in the season pass are another new character and a new campaign. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! is available for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
