You can now play with the skill trees of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel: perfect if you'd like to plan out in advance what you'll do on your first playthrough. Wilhelm's drones look like a combination of Axton's turret and Gaige's Deathtrap, both of which I loved in BL2, so I'll probably go with him. What about you? » 9/18/14 8:00am 9/18/14 8:00am
