Battleborn’s First Free Character Comes Out This Month

The first of five free characters for Battleborn will be released at the end of the month. The new character, named Alani, will join the fray on May 31 across every platform the game is released on. The character can be unlocked for 47,500 credits, which you’ll have to grind for by playing the game.

From what we know of Alani, she’s a warrior-monk who uses martial arts to heal her allies and dish out damage to her opponents. The character will receive a proper reveal on early access day—May 24.

Players with the Digital Deluxe edition and Season Pass holders will be able to unlock her ahead of everyone else. You can do so using a Hero Key, which will be provided for free.

It is possible to re-use the Hero Key repeatedly. Here’s how:

“Complete the challenge objective or reach the required Command Rank at any time after unlocking a hero using a Hero Key, then that Hero Key will be returned to you and you can then use that Hero Key to unlock another hero.”

Anyone who participated in the game’s open beta on PS4 will also receive a Hero Key on May 24.
