2K Games and Gearbox Software have revealed that Ernest, a giant bird with a grenade launcher, will be the 28th hero added to Battleborn.
“Sporting a grenade launcher and a proficiency for tactful detonation, Ernest is defensive mastermind with a strong devotion to protecting his allies,” Gearbox explains. “As the Varelsi scourge darkened system after system, Ernest joined up with the Peacekeepers to put his demolition prowess in service of the universe. A brilliant technician, this demobird will take on any challenge by going right the hell through it!”
Ernest will be added to the game “in the next couple of months” and will cost 47,500 in-game credits to unlock for free. Players also have the option of instantly unlocking him with a Hero Key, which are included in the game’s season pass.
More information about Ernest’s abilities will be shared closer to release.
