Battleborn’s First Free DLC Hero and Double XP Weekend Announced

DLC News Xbox One

Earlier today 2K and Gearbox Software announced that Alani, the first of five new and free characters coming to Battleborn, will release on May 31st on Xbox One. If you’re a season pass holder then you get her added dot your roster a week earlier on the 24th. 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.

We’ll see you on the battlefield, fellow Battleborn.

Some say Greg isn’t one person but a group of many people posting under the pseudonym “Greg”. No one knows for sure but either way, as long as he continues to fight the good fight of reviewing games, then we will always consider him a hero.
