Battleborn’s Alani Free DLC Hero Dated; Double XP Event Begins Next Week

Gearbox Software’s Battleborn will be adding it’s first free DLC hero Alani to the roster on May 31st. Available for everyone from May 31st on all platforms, and even earlier on May 24th for Season Pass holders and PlayStation 4 Open Beta participants.

Alani will be the first of five new free playable characters scheduled for Battleborn. Before the remaining four are released, there will be a Battleborn Double XP event running from Friday, May 20th to Wednesday, May 25th, for all players to earn double experience from Story Mode episodes and Competitive Multiplayer matches.


Alani is a member of the Eldrid faction who was raised as a healer but forced to be a warrior, and 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.

More details on Alani’s release and the Double XP Event were updated to the official log earlier this morning, available through here.

Battleborn is currently available across Australia and New Zealand on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
