Don’t read if you haven’t beaten the 10th run!!!
You were warned!!!
I’m now eagerly awaiting the announcement of a second season pass! I didn’t say anything before because I wasn’t really certain, but there were two things that lead me to believe there would be one. The first was the fact that Montana and The Demon Bear centers around NOVA going on an away mission to try and find an empty body for her processing core because she’s tired of waiting for Kleese to make her one. It’s well known that she’s a very popular choice for the next LLC Battleborn, and this only feeds that already roaring flame of NOVA hopefuls. Why tease it so much in a DLC knowing it’s so popular if there were no plans for it?
The seconds could have been me over thinking an honest mistake or verbal slip up, but I latched on to it none the less. When speaking of this op in the reveal stream, at one point they refered to it as "the last op in this set."
At the time I wrote it off as possibly a misspeak, but I held hope that it was an intentional hint.
Then, after fans endlessly speculated that The Empress would be the Jennerit Battleborn only to receive Beatrix (but she’s one of my favorite Battleborn so I’m totally cool with it,) we thought all was lost!
ENTER RATH! Distraught at his ultimate failure to protect the one thing in the universe he was meant to protect, his desperate ramblings about pulling his late Empress from the veil might have simply been him hoping for the unachievable!
BUT WAIT! Let us not forget the conversation between Rendain and Deande in the prologue in which she curses him for killing her Empress, and he chimes back with barely veiled (see what I did there?) hints that she’s in fact alive!
Jennerit Battleborn #7, anyone!?
Coupled with the final cog in the machine, I can’t help but bubble with excitement! And here’s the spoiler we’ve all been waiting for, my fellow Battleborn!
RENDAIN IS BACK, NERDS!!!
I hope you brought your baddy stompers, cus we’ve still got a great big baddy butt to kick! And if my suspicions are correct, THE BIGGEST BUTT DOESN’T BELONG TO RENDAIN OR THE VARELSI!
Was the thing that pushed the Aztanti back through the veil and prompted them to destroy their own civilization the very Varelsi we’ve fought for 20,000 years, or is it instead the thing that’s scaring the Varelsi through the void and in to our solar system…
Shut up and take my money @Jythri, I need more of this game!
