HAPPY BATTLEBORN DAY!
Times: 10am Saturday - 10pm Sunday CST (Gearbox bonuses running Friday 2pm PT through Monday 10am PT, more on that below)
New Players: Battleborn Day is for everyone, but we like to give special attention to our new players. If you’re a veteran, be on the lookout for new players, and help them learn the ropes! If you’re new, welcome! Be sure to check out our [New Players Thread.] (https://www.reddit.com/r/Battleborn/comments/5ktyc6/new_to_battleborn_this_thread_is_here_to_help_you/)
Winter Update: Battleborn Day II is also partly a celebration of the Winter Update, which isn’t perfect of course, but brought us a whole lot of love and new content from Gearbox. Read up on the Winter Update [here!] (https://www.reddit.com/r/Battleborn/comments/5oxz7n/winter_update_info_discussion_thread/)
More changes and content have come since the Winter Update, like the new Story Op and some balance changes. Read up on all that stuff [here.] (https://battleborn.com/en/news/)

Also: Legendary and faction loots packs will be available for purchase, skins and taunts will be on sale, special titles will be available, and logging in during Battleborn Day will net you gold skins for Ghalt and Kelvin!
There is more to come! Keep an eye on the Battleborn Twitter through the weekend.
Queues: Our queues for the weekend will be Solo/Duo Quick Select and (at least on Saturday) we’ll have Versus Draft!
