Battleborn's new snake hero is coming next week

Plissken ... er, Pendles will get an early access release first


Battleborn continues to roll out new free content, having already gotten one new DLC hero in late May. Now, the release of the next hero, a snake assassin named Pendles, has been revealed for July 28.

The cold-blooded killer will be available for season pass holders first, but will make his debut to the masses a week later on August 4 for 47,500 in-game credits. Pendles is a Roa from the world of Akopos, same as the first DLC hero, Alani. According to the background provide by developer Gearbox, the reptile has found enjoyment in murder. "Even better, people would pay him for his new found hobby. Don’t let his sweet pair of sneakers fool you. This assassin will sneak up behind you, poison you, eviscerate you with duel kamas, then slink away again in a blink of his one remaining eye."

The game's July update was released yesterday, adding some new summer skins and taunts to the store. Three new multiplayer maps have been added as well: Snowblind (for Capture mode), Outskirts (for Meltdown), and Monuments (for Incursion).

Also, the Lootpocolypse has been extended, offering a bigger bonus to Legendary drop rates. The event will now conclude on July 25.
