A hot fix for Battleborn is rolling out today, June 15th 2017 beginning at 2pm CT. Here’s everything you need to know:
Character Rotation and Marketplace Changes
New Rotation: Ambra, Toby, Thorn, Oscar Mike, Phoebe, Montana
Next week’s rotation (Week 3): Kid Ultra, Kelvin, Orendi, Oscar Mike, Rath, Reyna
New bundles are on sale in the in-game marketplace to coincide with this weeks’ free character rotation!
Addition of the “All Operations” Queue
Join this queue to match with other players and play any of the five operation missions available to you! Players will be able to vote on their choice from three operations at a time.
You must own the Season Pass or all five Operation Missions in order to match into this queue.
Operations Required to enter the “All Operations” queue: Attikus and the Thrall Rebellion, Toby’s Friendship Raid, Oscar Mike vs. the Battle School, Montana and the Demon Bear, Phoebe and the Heart of Ekkunar
Faction Kill Challenges Fix
- We’ve fixed an issue that prevented bot versions of Deande, El Dragón, Ernest, and Pendles from counting towards faction kill challenges.
Voting Returns to Quick Match Queue on PC
- PC only: Voting has been enabled in the Quick Match queue. More on this below from Creative Director Randy Varnell:
As always, we are watching how players are playing Battleborn and listening to your feedback! With that, we have some minor queue adjustments this week for PC players, with changes next week for players on all platforms including the addition of our new competitive mode, Supercharge!
Our intent with the current queue configuration is for Quick Match to be the place where players have a chance to play any Battleborn mode. Incursion, our most popular and competitive mode, is featured in Versus Draft, and we hoped that serious players or Incursion devotees would head to Versus Draft and compete there. Voting has been disabled in Quick Match to encourage those who favor Incursion-only matching to head to Versus Draft and play there, and (likewise) to keep Quick Match from simply turning into an “all Incursion, all the time” queue.
For Xbox and PS4, that has been happening regularly. We still encourage serious Incursion players or 5-man experienced teams to head to Versus Draft for closer matches. On PC, not enough Versus Draft matches are being played to provide the experience we are intending. So, this week, we will be enabling voting on Quick Match for PC players to offer some additional choice to you while we give Versus Draft a bit more time to settle.
We will be watching player habits and feedback closely, and will adjust course accordingly.
