It’s no secret that Gearbox Software was going to eventually add some sort of micro-transactions to their hero-shooter, Battleborn, at some point after launch. It was just a matter of when.
According to Gearbox themselves, the new micro-DLC set to go live June 16 and will feature a number of different payment options to purchase the soon to be introduced “Platinum” currency. You can see all of the different payment options below:
- $1.99 USD for 230 Platinum
- $4.99 USD for 700 Platinum
- $9.99 USD for 1625 Platinum
- $19.99 USD for 3500 Platinum
- $49.99 USD for 9300 Platinum
Upon purchasing Platinum currency, you’ll be able to buy the Tier 2 skins that were spotted during the Open Beta for about 420 platinum each. Additionally, Gearbox is also making new taunts available for Ghalt, Oscar Mike, Benedict, Shayne & Aurox, El Dragon, Whiskey Foxtrot, Kleese, and Alani. Each taunt costs 230 Platinum.
It should be noted that these purchases are just purely cosmetic only and don’t have any real effect on Battleborn’s PvP game modes. Gearbox also still plans to release new heroes, multiplayer maps, and modes for free in the near future.
Battleborn is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One
