The newest Battleborn hero, Ernest, is currently available for early access for those that own the Season Pass or purchased the Digital Deluxe edition. Everyone else will be able to unlock Ernest when he becomes available on September 1 for 47,500 in-game credits.

Gearbox has even released a full gameplay video that showcases an overview of Ernest's skills.
Along with the release of Ernest, Gearbox has also announced the next Battleborn hero: Kid Ultra. Kid Ultra will mark the 29th Battleborn within the game and will be able to provide healing and buffs to his teammates while subduing enemies.
