Gearbox is preparing to release a new DLC for its first-person shooting game "Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel" and it features the ice cold Lady Hammerlock the Baroness, VG 247 reported.

"Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel" is developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. It was originally released in October and is the third game in the franchise. Since its release, the "The Pre-Sequel" has released one DLC character, The Doppelganger, who became available in November and is now introducing their second DLC character.

Lady Aurelia Hammerlock, the older sister of Sir Alistair Hammerlock, was introduced by Gearbox at the PAX South 2015 held in San Antonio Texas from Jan. 23 to 25, according to IGN.

The report cited an official press release, which described Lady Hammerlock as the heir to the Hammerlock family fortune who loves to ride her hoverbike through the hallways of her orbital turbomansion, hunt for the greatest game around the galaxy and argue with her younger brother Alistair. She liked shooting the rare animals that Alistair planned to study and took pleasure at the look of surprise and horror on his face whenever she wore the carcasses of her kills like a scarf, the report added.

According to Digital Trends, Lady Hammerlock has three skill trees: Huntress, Cold Money, and Contractual Aristocracy, as well as one action skill called Cold as Ice. Huntress is reportedly the most "straightforward" of these three skills, the outlet continued, because it is focused on boosting damages, sniping and dealing out consecutive headshots. Using Cold Money, she's able to deal out ice elemental damage, while the Contractual Aristocracy on the other hand, offers teamplay-centric buffs, allowing the gamer and Lady Hammerlock to reap the benefits of the kills of their teammates. 

Furthermore, the character throws her Frost Diadem Shard at her enemies when charged, Digital Trends wrote. The shard attaches to them and delivers a steady stream of damages until the enemy dies or the time for the bauble runs out. However, if the enemy dies without time running out, the Frost Diadem Shard simply moves on to its next victim.

The team from IGN was also able to talk to Anthony Burch, the lead writer for "Borderlands," and gamers and fans can check out their interview as Burch talked about Lady Hammerlock's skills and history at length.

"Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel" Lady Hammerlock DLC will be released on Jan. 27 to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for $9.99.

During the PAX South 2015, "Borderlands" also mentioned a new game that will follow up "Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel," which many are anticipating as "Borderlands 3."
