First Battleborn DLC Will Release On May 31st

Battleborn Double XP Weekend Also Announced


We now know when we will get the first of five new free playable characters for Battleborn. The new Alani character will be available on May 31st for all platforms, but if you are a season pass holder and/or a PS4 open beta participant, then you will be able to download it on the 24th of May instead.

From Gearbox’s PAX East panel, “Alani is a member of the Eldrid faction who was raised as a healer but forced to be a warrior, and is all that remains of her order after Rendain’s Jennerit Imperium stole the oceans from her world. As a warrior from a planet with vast seas, Alani’s attacks and abilities revolve around her power to control water to dish out pain, or heal her fellow Battleborn.”

Part of the press release that was received also noted that Gearbox will be hosting a Battleborn Double XP event that will start from Friday, May 20th at 8am PDT to Wednesday, May 25th at 8am PDT. Players will be able to earn twice as much XP regardless if you are playing the Story Mode or the Competitive Multiplayer.

Stuck in a perpetual state of daydreaming usually, I like to think about a TARDIS coming to get me, or handling a real lightsaber. Other than that, I am an old pop culture enthusiast that enjoys film, games, and anime...probably to an unhealthy degree.
