2K has revealed its post-launch plans for Battleborn, which it says it plans on adding more value to the base game in the form of both free content updates and paid add-on packs.

Starting with the free content updates, Battleborn will receive five new playable heroes sometime after launch across all platforms, bringing the total roster of Heroes to 30. Additional competitive multiplayer modes, maps, balance updates, and community features will also be released for free.

A total of five new add-on packs are planned to be released sometime after Battleborn’s launch. Each pack will retail for $4.99 each and include a PvE Story Operation, exclusive skins, and taunts. All five packs can be purchased as part of the game’s Season Pass for $19.99, although if you plan on enjoying the full Battleborn experience, you can purchase a Digital Deluxe Edition of the game for $74.99. This edition of the game includes the base game, its Season Pass, and additional cosmetic customizations.

      I see all this Battleborn news coming up, and cool that 2K wants to support the game post release, but at the same time, I don't see anyone talking about the game or even being remotely interested in it. I don't know if it's just because we don't fully know what the game will be yet, or because the market is starting to get flooded by these 3rd person hero-based team games and this is just another blip on the map.

        This is first person I believe.

        It could just be another blip and everyone seems to be comparing it to Overwatch.

        I think they pretty much have to build a niche and get word of mouth about a solid game. The hype train moments have passed.

          I honestly could not tell you the difference between Battleborn and Paragon if you showed me pictures of each. I could point out Overwatch because I played the beta but otherwise all these games are just starting to meld together into a big ball of something I don't want to play.

            Paragon is F2P and third person right?

            Paladins is apparently in the mix too.

            I agree there will be a lot of also rans. Battleborn may appeal to the Borderlands crowd who wanted more MP options though.

        It's 2K implementing what they think they've learned from the E4olve disaster, but with a game that has no apparent unique traits.

        It's a somewhat undefined, bland looking entry in a genre that's going to feel very crowded, very quickly.

          Yea there was that tweet from Pitchford that went around with a bunch of nonsense sounding buzz words that made me go "wtf is this game".

        The videos I watched made it look boring as hell.
