1/11/17 - by 2K Staff
Keep your swords sharp and rockets primed, Battleborn’s mega Winter Update releases on January 19! This is by far the biggest Battleborn content drop yet, with brand new training modes, draft mode, a major user interface overhaul, and a whole lot more. Whether you’re new to Battleborn or a hardened veteran, you’ll need to check out the Winter Update when it goes live next week.
You’ve seen the Winter Update livestream and read the overview, but there’s something we haven’t mentioned: Arriving with the update is Early Access to Beatrix, the 30th Battleborn hero, AND the third DLC Story Operation, “Oscar Mike vs. The Battle School.”

BEATRIX EARLY ACCESS
Precise. Deadly. Obsessively hygienic – The 30th Battleborn hero is a menace to be reckoned with. Wielding her prosthetic syringe arm, Beatrix spreads debuffs and disease wherever she goes. A master at manipulating life, her prowess for science combined with her Jennerit ruthlessness makes her one extremely qualified, and EXTREMELY DANGEROUS physician.
Beatrix is always ready to terminate an uncooperative subject… er… enemy. Are you ready to be part of her medical trials? Beatrix releases on January 26 for all players and can be unlocked with 47,500 earned credits. Can’t wait? Eager participants with the Season Pass get early access and a hero key to instantly unlock Beatrix starting January 19th.
