First paid DLC for Battleborn coming in October
Debut Story Operation release planned, more free content also on the way
Gearbox Software and 2K Games have announced plans to release the first batch of premium DLC for Battleborn later this year.
DLC 1 Story Operation “Attikus and the Thrall Rebellion” is coming October 13. Every Story Operation is playable solo or co-op with up to three buddies. The Operations themselves are side stories that expand on some Battleborn hero’s lore, sending players right into the middle of the action. They are shorter than the main Story Missions and highly replayable.
All five of the upcoming Story Ops are included in the Season Pass and Digital Deluxe editions of Battleborn, or separately for $4.99USD.
Alongside the first DLC Story Operation comes a free Competitive Multiplayer mode, Face Off. Two teams fight against each other to exterminate the invading Varelsi. Each team must coordinate between defense and offense to kill Varelsi, collect their masks and deposit them for points. The first team to 500 points wins. Three more heroes will also be added, bringing the total to 30.
Battleborn was released earlier this year for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
