Gearbox has announced that the first Battleborn Story DLC will release this October along with a new PvP mode. This Story DLC, called a Story Operation, will be the first of five Operations. All Story Operation DLC is paid DLC and part of the game’s Season Pass.
Every Story Operation is playable solo or co-op with up to two buddies. The Operations themselves are side stories that expand on some Battleborn hero’s lore, sending you right into the middle of the action. They are shorter than the main Story Missions and highly replayable. Each playthrough moves you towards unlocking more lore, skins, titles, and taunts. Not to mention, the dialogue, enemies, and objective change depending on your current playthrough.
The first Operation, called “Attikus and the Thrall Rebellion,” will release on October 13, 2016 for $4.99 if you don’t already have the Season Pass, either purchased separately or as part of the Digital Deluxe edition of Battleborn.
Also on October 13, 2016 Battleborn will have a new PvP mode called Face-Off. Face-Off will be free DLC.
Two teams fight against each other to exterminate the invading Varelsi. Each team must coordinate between defense and offense to kill Varelsi, collect their masks and deposit them for points. The first team to 500 points wins. Of course killing Varelsi makes them mad – Be ready for intense, multi-phase battles! Steal masks from enemy players and be quick to pick up masks your teammates left behind.
Gearbox promises to have more information on the first Story Op closer to its release date.
