In an interesting way to reveal the next set of downloadable content for Borderlands 2, the game’s spunky Mechromancer Gaige had her Twitter account hacked by a strange new character named Mister Torgue.
The “hacking” started just a short time ago, and here’s the series of tweets that were posted as a result:
Hey g*uys! Sorr#y for the lack of upd%ates lately. My ECHO com’s been on $the friTz. I thin^ some)_’s tr#4ng to h/*ck it
YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH IT’S TORGUE TIME BITCHES

That last tweet came attached with the image you see above, which it would seem is none other than Mister Torgue himself. Now, obviously, this is all the work of Gearbox and their attempt to find a creative way to announce Mister Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage—but, hey, it sure beats the typical press release.
