Battleborn goes gold; Season Pass will add five post-release DLC packs

Battleborn, the long-awaited first person MOBA game from developer Gearbox Software, has officially gone gold for the Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 for its release on May 3. However, the game will get a bunch of post-release content for its players.

The official Battleborn website has some of the details for the post-release content. That includes plans to release five more heroes for the game for free for all platforms:

"The first of the five new free heroes to release will be Alani, 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."

In addition, Gearbox plans to release five paid DLC packs for Battleborn:

" Those that are familiar with Borderlands post-launch content over the years should feel right at home with Battleborn's add-on packs, each pack will cost $4.99 and include one new Story Operation, as well as exclusive hero skins and taunts. These PvE Operations will be highly replayable solo, or co-operatively online and splitscreen with your friends, and will let you experience new side-stories during the fight to save the last star in the universe."

Battleborn will have a Season Pass that will cost $19.99 that will allow players to get all five DLC packs for the price of four. You can pre-order the main game for $59.99 (opens in new tab) for the Xbox one now.

  • Well, looks like $80-90 is stablished as the standard price for COMPLETE games.
  • Don't feel bad. Canadians are looking at 80$+ for a game, and 40$+ for the season pass. That's ~100$ (with the taxes) in funny, green money. AND our prices change every time you turn around. Even if the dollar goes up, games don't drop in price. I'm pretty much only buying used or long after release when prices drop.
  • Well, looks like $80-90 is the standard price for COMPLETE games. :/
  • I played the beta of this. I didn't like it at all. It just felt like a big mess that poorly conveyed what was going on. DOOM will be my summer FPS instead.
  • I'd maybe be excited by Battleborn if Overwatch wasn't coming out three weeks later.
