2K and Gearbox Software announced two new characters to the upcoming first-person shooter Battleborn. Attikus and Galilea, the 19th and 20th characters revealed, are both close-range brawlers utilizing biotechnology and dark energy.
Just like all of the 25 playable heroes, Attikus and Galilea can be used in both online competitive multiplayer, and in the game's story mode. The story mode can be played solo, cooperatively with up to 5 players online, or locally for 2-players via split screen.
A slave, laborer, and warrior, Attikus, has been shoved into the deepest of mines and kept down. But thanks to an experimental biotech harness, this already-imposing brute was given the one thing no one expected: Intelligence. And the only thing more dangerous than a huge, imposing beast with an axe to grind against his oppressors…is a smart imposing beast with an axe to grind against his oppressors.
Galilea was once a promising undercover agent. But when her sabotage mission went wrong and she was mortally wounded, it was the very technology she sought to destroy that ultimately saved her life. Now unstable, immortal, and reeking of life-draining dark energy, Galilea is at war with herself and her new powers as she hopes to find a new purpose with the Battleborn and their fight to save the last star in the universe.
