Battleborn’s 30th Hero Revealed; New Story DLC Released
Today, publisher 2K Games and developer Gearbox Software released a new story DLC for Battleborn, called Toby’s Friendship Raid.
The following overview of the DLC was provided in the pres release:
“This all-new story operation let’s players fight their way through LLC manufacturing facilities’ deadly traps and enemies to earn new skins, taunts, and chances to unlock Faction Commander Packs while pursuing their mission to restore Toby’s mech suit to its rightful owner.”
Toby’s Friendship Raid is free if you own a copy of the season pass, otherwise the story expansion can be purchased separately for 700 Platinum via the in-game marketplace.
Additionally, Gearbox also revealed a new playable character called Beatrix. According the developer, she will be available sometime in the next couple of months. When she does release she will be available in-game for 47,500 credits or as an unlock via a hero key (which is included in the season pass). Gearbox provided the following description of the new character, as well as the first piece of concept art.
“A former scientist, Beatrix has a fondness, if not obsession with hygiene, precision and manipulating living creatures by injecting them with lethal debuffs and disease from her prosthetic syringe-arm.”
Looking ahead, three more story DLCs are planned for release, as well as an addition of a free competitive multiplayer mode.
