If you’re as excited for details on Kid Ultra as we are, then you’re in luck! Today, we’ll be turning on the bright lights of our stream studio once again to bring you the Kid Ultra Reveal Stream. Gearbox New Media Manager Elisa Meléndez will be joined by Battleborn Creative Director Randy Varnell and Designer Chuck Bartholomew to discuss all things Kid Ultra – including his kit, skills, and evolution.
Are you ready to suit up as the LLC’s newest support Magnus? Then you won’t want to miss the big stream on Thursday at 3pm PT (6pm ET) on the Gearbox Software Twitch Channel. While you’re there, give us a follow so you can receive a notification whenever we go live!
We have a couple minor hot fixes related to minion XP awards. You can expect these changes to begin rolling out today at 12pm PT (3pm ET).
• Fixed an issue that caused M1.Gun Bot and M1.Blade Bot minions to award decreased XP in Meltdown maps
• Fixed an issue that caused M3.Shepherd minions to award decreased XP in Meltdown and Incursion maps
It probably comes as no surprise that here at Gearbox, we love working on Battleborn. We especially love seeing amazing creations from the community. Cosplays and fan art never disappoint, but it’s especially interesting to read someone else’s take on our story. Enter Darren Xirias (@DarrenXirias), who has created an extensive collection of Battleborn fan fiction. One of these chapters, Aftermath, has become a hit among the community recently and was brought to our attention this week. Check it out along with more of Darren’s fan fiction!
Speaking of story and lore, we’re hyping up Kid Ultra this week and we thought our lore section of the Battleplan would be the perfect place to give you a look inside the mind of the newest Battleborn.
