A game is not complete without a season pass, am I right? No. No I’m not. But such is life.

Gearbox Software’s MOBA-shooter hybrid Battleborn has just been completed. Production’s done, and they’re getting ready to ship. So, since this is 2016, that means it’s time to hear about post-launch content. Publisher 2K posted an update on the game’s official website, detailing plans for Battleborn‘s post-launch content, both free and paid, the latter of which will have a season pass.

When Battleborn launches on May 3rd, it’ll come with 25 heroes. Post-launch, on all platforms, Gearbox will be releasing five more of them for free, and they’ve already announced the first one: Alani, a healer/warrior. As well, there will be all sorts of free modes, maps, and community features being put out over time. Besides that, Battleborn will also have a fair amount of paid post-launch content in the form of Borderlands-esque $5 add-on packs. Each will include one new “highly replayable” story operation alongside exclusive hero skins and taunts. There will be five of these packs in all, and you can pay just $20 to get them all with the season pass, if you’d rather not buy them individually.

Our Verdict

Barry Herbers
I write editorials here at Gamnesia and occasionally some news (though far less often than I used to). Here's some of my work, long-form game essays, if you have any interest in that sort of stuff: The Amount of Content in a Game Has Nothing to do with its Price A Game's Atmosphere is Defined by its Mechanics, Not its Aesthetic The Witcher 3's Introduction is Terribly Paced and Too Restrictive of its Players I'm looking forward to The Last Guardian (had it pre-ordered since 2010), Rime, Night in the Woods, and Vane. If I had a niche, it would probably be the somewhat higher fidelity indie games, as take up most of the spots on that list. I'm also developing a no-budget video game with a friend, and you can follow me on Twitter (@TheVioletBarry) to hear about that and anything else I feel like saying. Film, games, it's that sort of stuff.
