Battleborn is an exciting new game by Gearbox Software that combines the visual style of the Borderland series, first-person shooter action, and elements of MOBA games into a single game. Recently, the developer released Battleborn’s Incursion Mode and today let loose on a few more details regarding its post-release expansion.
Gearbox Software confirms Battleborn Season Pass and new heroes
When released, Battleborn will have 25 different heroes to choose from. But in order to keep any MOBA game interesting, new heroes need to be added. That’s exactly what Gearbox Software did today when they released details regarding the first new hero to be added to the heroes roster.
The new hero is called Alani, a member of Eldrid faction. Alani was raised as a healer but had to learn the art of combat in order to survive. Alani comes from a planet with many oceans, something that makes sense when you see that most of her attacks and abilities are water-based. She’s a powerful warrior that can control water and use her powers to heal her allies or to inflict pain on her enemies.
Alani will be the first hero to be added to Battleborn after the game’s release on May 3rd, 2016. There are plans to add four additional heroes to Battleborn but so far, no information is available regarding their release. What we do know is that all of the five new heroes will be free to all players.
Gearbox Software also plans to introduce paid content in the form of DLC packs. Five add-on packs are planned, each priced at $4.99. Each pack will feature one new Story Operation along with exclusive hero skins and taunts. You can play each of these Story Operations by yourself or online with friends. If you’re not too fond of online co-op, though, there’s a split screen option available as well. The Season Pass will include all five DLC packs and cost $19.99.
It’s great to see that Gearbox Software already has plans for new content. We hope to see even more heroes and extra content after Battleborn’s release.
