First Battleborn DLC character coming, Double XP Weekend starts today


If you enjoyed Gearbox’s Battleborn Beta before the game’s release on PS4 or have purchased the game’s season pass, then you’ll have access to the first DLC characters, Alani, for free starting May 24th. Meanwhile everyone else will have to wait till May 31st to earn a chance at unlocking the water-based warrior/healer for 47,500 in game credits or with a hero key.

Alani is the first of 5 free dlc characters coming to Battleborn, Season Pass owners will get a hero key when the character is available to unlock her or any other badass hero available in the game. Those who participated in the PS4 Beta will be given a Hero Key with intentions of using it for Alani, however if you picked up the season pass this would allow you to gain an extra Key to be used on any character you’d like.

For those still working their way into leveling up their Battleborn, this weekend would be the best time as Gearbox is hosting a double XP weekend from now until Wednesday, May 25th at 8am PDT. The Double XP awards will be available to increase your Command Rank and Character Rank experience in all Story Mode missions and Competitive Multiplayer matches.
