Battleborn Story Operations & DLC 1
10/5/16 - by 2K Staff
Brace yourselves, Battleborn – the first Story Operation launches on Thursday, October 13! You’ll relive the third Thrall uprising that sparked a revolution within the Jennerit Empire. Run through the slums of the planet Tempest and see what motivated Attikus, firsthand.
If you’re not familiar with them, Story Operations are side stories that expand upon Battleborn hero lore, dropping you right into the middle of the action.
In this Story Op, “Attikus and the Thrall Rebellion” gives you Attikus’ perspective with a film noir flair. Play as any of the Battleborn heroes to fight your way through the streets and rooftops of the Tempest slums.
Experience these highly replayable Story Operations solo or co-op with up to two buddies. Each time you relive the Thrall Rebellion, you can unlock new lore, skins, titles, and taunts. Not to mention all the dialogue, enemies, and objectives that change depending on your current playthrough.
Check out MentalMars’ interview with Battleborn Creative Director, Randy Varnell, for an even deeper look into Story Operations:
