Battleborn introduces new heroes Shayne and Aurox, Kelvin, and Whiskey Foxtrot

2K Games reveals three more playable characters.

Battleborn

2K Games and Gearbox Software have introduced new Battleborn playable heroes Shayne and Aurox, Kelvin, and Whiskey Foxtrot.

The three are available to play in both competitive multiplayer matches, as well as the game’s Story Mode, which can be played single-player, co-up with up to five players, or split-screen with two-players.

Details for each character are posted with each trailer below. More information is available at the Battleborn official website.

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

Watch the trailers below. View a set of screenshots at the gallery.

Shayne and Aurox

Another unlikely team-up, Shayne was already a bratty teenage girl at the end of the universe with nothing to lose, but her bond with the space creature known as Aurox has made her nearly unstoppable. Joined at the hip, these symbiotic furies strive to utterly demolish their foes through a mixture of brute force and stealth.

Kelvin

At first glance, Kelvin appears to be a hulking ice golem, but is in fact an entire microorganism civilization that, together, form a single sentient being that smashes, chomps and freezes its enemies for the survival of the species.

Whiskey Foxtrot

First in the trenches, Whiskey Foxtrot is an offbeat and imperfect facsimile of a soldier. Using scavenged armor and jerry-rigged weapons, everything about Whiskey Foxtrot just seems “off,” but his homemade UPR-SL3 tactical rifle, sticky bombs, and scrap canon can help turn the tide of any battle.
