Skins based on characters from 2K Australia's upcoming title Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel are making their way into Borderlands 2, Gearbox announced during its panel at the GaymerX conference.
The skins will be available as a free, automatic update that is currently slated to hit next Tuesday, Gearbox said. They can be obtained as rare random item drops within the game. Costumes include a Moon Moxxi outfit for Gaige and a Claptrap costume for male characters, and Gearbox is planning to host community events around the skins. During the panel, Gearbox noted that the skins were inspired by cosplay — these skins are basically the Borderlands 2 characters cosplaying as Pre-Sequel characters.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be out October 14th for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, though Gearbox has previously stated it could head to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the future.
