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.
