2K and Gearbox Software have unveiled two new heroes for upcoming team based FPS Battleborn – their names are Attikus and Galilea and you can check them out in action below:

“Attikus and Galilea are both up-close-and-personal brawlers, relying on bio-technology and dark energy, as well as good old fisticuffs and swords to strike down their enemies. Like all Battleborn heroes, Attikus and Galilea are available to play in both competitive multiplayer matches, as well as the game’s Story Mode – which can be played single player, co-op up to 5 players, or 2-player splitscreen. Attikus is a slave, labourer, and warrior, who has been shoved into the deepest of mines and kept down. But thanks to an experimental biotech harness, this already-imposing brute was given the one thing no one expected: Intelligence. And the only thing more dangerous than a huge, imposing beast with an axe to grind against his oppressors…is a smart imposing beast with an axe to grind against his oppressors. Galilea, on the other hand, was once a promising undercover agent. But when her sabotage mission went wrong and she was mortally wounded, it was the very technology she sought to destroy that ultimately saved her life. Now unstable, immortal, and reeking of life-draining dark energy, Galilea is at war with herself and her new powers as she hopes to find a new purpose with the Battleborn and their fight to save the last star in the universe.”


Battleborn’s heroes all look pretty cool, and the same can be said for these new guys. I’m looking forward to trying out Galilea especially, but I still think Toby is my favourite… Nothing beats a fierce Penguin, right?!

Battleborn is coming to Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 3rd 2016. Check out more on the official website through this link.
