As previously announced, the Battleborn open beta will launch first on PlayStation 4 in early 2016. At the PlayStation Experience 2015 opening keynote, Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford announced that the game’s 16th character, a penguin named Toby, will be exclusive to PlayStation 4 users during the open beta, and that users who play the open beta on PlayStation 4 will get an additional character coming as downloadable content after the game launches free of charge.

Battleborn is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 3, 2016.
