Alani, the first of five new free playable characters for Battleborn, will release for Season Pass holders and PS4 Open Beta participants on May 24, becoming available to all players from May 31, Gearbox and 2K have announced.
"A member of the Eldrid faction who was raised as a healer, but forced to be a warrior, Alani is all that remains of her order after Rendain’s Jennerit Imperium stole the oceans from her world. As a warrior from a planet with vast seas, Alani’s attacks and abilities revolve around her power to control water to dish out pain, or heal her fellow Battleborn," explains Gearbox.
Alani can be unlocked by Season Pass holders using a Hero Key, whilst other players will have to unlock her for 47,500 in-game credits.
In addition, a Double XP event begins today at 4pm BST and ends the same time on Wednesday. During the event players will earn twice the experience points from all Story Mode episodes and Competitive Multiplayer matches.
