Battleborn at PlayStation Experience (PSX)
Gearbox Software’s Randy Pitchford took to the stage at the annual PlayStation Experience press conference in San Francisco last weekend to reveal Toby – a penguin in a hulking mech suit – as the 16th playable hero in Battleborn. He also shared more news about Battleborn’s Open Beta coming in 2016.
Here’s a quick look at what was announced:
- Battleborn’s 16th playable hero (out of 25) is Toby, who may look like an adorable penguin ready to march off some arctic shelf, but is actually an angry engineering genius in a heavily-armed battle mech. Toby will be available to try in the Open Beta in 2016 on PS4. For full details about Toby, including his backstory, check out this blog post: https://battleborn.com/en/news/view/toby-the-destroyer/
You can watch Toby in action, here.
- PlayStation 4 players will receive early access to the Battleborn Open Beta in 2016, and as a special thank you to all those PS4 players who participate in the Open Beta, it was announced today that they will receive a bonus 26th Battleborn hero after the game launches on May 3, 2016.
You can watch the PSX trailer here.
