Question about Alani

Okay, I have a question: I’ll probably be pre-ordering from GameStop for those sweet, sweet statues. Will I still be able to get Alani as the E-Mail stated, for participating in the Beta? Or does it HAVE to be digital preorder?

“…PlayStation 4 players who participate in the upcoming Open Beta will instantly-unlock Alani once she’s available after launch, saving players the time it takes to earn her through playing the game. PlayStation 4 players who participate in the upcoming Open Beta and also purchase the Season Pass will receive a hero unlock key allowing you to instantly unlock any hero in the game.”

This is a direct quote from https://battleborn.com/en/news/view/en-the-vision-for-battleborn-post-launch-content/. It does not appear that you have to pre-order the digital version of the game, just to have participated in the Open Beta as a PlayStation 4 player.
