Sometime in the next couple months, a new playable character will be added to Battleborn's roster of fighters. Ernest will be the 28th Battleborn, an explosion expert bird complete with a grenade launcher and tactical army outfit. [Excerpt]

Ernest will be free to all players with 47,500 credits earned in-game. He can also be unlocked by using a Hero Key, which are included in the Season Pass. No specific date has been given for the official arrival of Ernest, but two other free DLC characters are currently in the works as well.
