Battleborn is only a couple of months away and today 2K and Gearbox Software have released full details regarding three new playable heroes.
Battleborn will launch with 25 heroes and amongst them will be Shayne and Aurox, Whiskey Foxtrot, and Kelvin – the weirdest of the weird oddities that make up the team. Available to play in both competitive multiplayer matches, as well as the game’s full single player, five player co-op or two player split-screen Story Mode, each character will offer a huge about of uniqueness.
First up, Whiskey Foxtrot is an offbeat and imperfect facsimile of a soldier. Using scavenged armor and jerry-rigged weapons, everything about Whiskey Foxtrot just seems “off,” but his homemade UPR-SL3 tactical rifle, sticky bombs, and scrap canon can help turn the tide of any battle.
Kelvin may appear to be nothing more than a hulking ice golem, but is in fact an entire microorganism civilization that, together, form a single sentient being that smashes, chomps and freezes its enemies for the survival of the species.
And that leaves the most unlikely of teams – Shayne and Aurox. Shayne was already a bratty teenage girl at the end of the universe with nothing to lose, but her bond with Aurox, the space creature has made her nearly unstoppable. Joined at the hip, these symbiotic furies strive to utterly demolish their foes through a mixture of brute force and stealth.
You can check them all out in the trailers below – just feel free to ignore the PS branding 🙂 Battleborn will appear on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on May 3, 2016.
