A massive update for Borderlands developer Gearbox's shooter Battleborn is coming today, adding a new character, economy changes, performance improvements, and a lot more.

The Winter update starts its rollout at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET. As outlined in a blog post, the file size is 13 GB on PlayStation 4, 18 GB on Xbox One, and 15 GB on PC, so this is a big one.

Starting with the performance enhancements, Gearbox says every map, mission, and mode for all platforms has been "touched-up to improve optimization." On PS4 Pro, the game can run at a number of different resolution/frame rate combinations, including 1080p/30fps, 1080p/60fps, or 4K/30fps. Check out GameSpot's roundup to see the other games with PS4 Pro updates.

On Xbox One S, players will have the option to crank the visuals up to 1080p and up to 60fps.

"PC players do not have the same fps caps as console, but they will experience frame rate increases throughout Battleborn," Gearbox said.

As for the new hero, Beatrix will be available in this update for some as part of an early access release; everyone else can play the character, Battleborn's 30th, starting on January 26. Here is a video that breaks down Beatrix's skills and abilities:

A new story mission, called Oscar Mike vs The Battle School," is also included with this update, while all 25 "core" Battleborn characters are being unlocked for everyone. Additionally, two new training modes, Incursion Tutorial and Dojo, are being added with this update, as is a Draft Mode that lets teams take turns choosing and banning characters. What's more, a daily quest system is coming, while the Command Rank level cap is being pushed to 150, with individual character rank caps going to 20.

As for the in-game economy changes, Gearbox says this has received an "overhaul."

"All loot pack variations will still drop in Story Mode missions, but only one type of loot pack will be available in the Marketplace: The Core Pack," the developer explained. "The Core Pack has better odds for higher rarity gear and has a chance to drop any skin or taunt previously available in Faction packs. Credits will now accumulate faster in public PVP matches, making it easier to grab more Core Packs from the Marketplace. You will also see a bigger variety of Boosts available for Platinum in the Marketplace."

Be sure to read Gearbox's full blog post for a complete and incredibly detailed breakdown of what's in the Winter update.

Although Battleborn did not meet sales expectations, Gearbox promised to support the game with DLC and updates--and so far, it's delivered. New story missions and extra characters have attempted to keep the game fresh for those still playing.

In other Gearbox news, CEO Randy Pitchford has suggested Borderlands 3 won't come to the Nintendo Switch.

Its really not a bad game, I paid £20 on PC and was happy with it. Recently bought it for around this price on XO and still play it.

Good on them for supporting the game even though it's not doing the best.

Hmmm tell me about it. Had my son playing that heroes and storms (is it?) For something on that overwatch :-/
5 hours PC robbed.

Crazy how cheap this is for a year or so old game. It can hold its own and well worth the price. It just got majorly overshadowed by overwatch unfortunately for blizzard. (Maybe they should have gone with what the fans wanted...a new borderlands..probably in production anywho)

Same here, I kind of hate the cheap prices these days as i am jumping from game to game without finishing one. I miss the £40 a cartridge Mega Drive days.

phewwww, dont remind me, that was my 3rd console, i still want to go back to my first console/computer, zx spectrum +2, relive some memories

Me too. I used to get one game a year for my birthday

What does 'completing' a game even constitute nowadays? I don't even remember difficulty levels on mega drive and nes games. Finishing the campaign meant completing

Now you have to play a campaign 33 x over and go treasure egg hunting to complete a game 100% so I don't even bother anymore

1.99 pre owned for Xbox one lol

-40 at £3 with the character cards but hot for 59p more without :

I wonder why so many think it's not what's posted but merely who posts. (_;)

I think people instantly dislike Asda deals nowadays as it's pot luck really. but for me, if it's in one I vote hot but people might think it's probably not in mine so cold.

You're right but u used a bad example cause yours was in 1 asda (goose chase) but anyone can order this. So I don't really know why you're choosing this deal to make that point

No ones playing it online apparently. I bought this at full whack, will never buy a pre-release again.

Is there a single player campaign in this game and is it worth buying for that?

super heat from me got 1.46 off as had Game points.

​.. also now there is free added content... which is why I've bought it.

Great price & now they have added all the characters and tweaked the game modes - Had a quick go this morning and they have adjusted & shortened game times .... Maybe a bit more like Overwatch now

These include the cards

"On Xbox One S, players will have the option to crank the visuals up to 1080p and up to 60fps."

Should state Xbox one also. It's not just the S model.

It does

(PS4/XO)

Finally given in and bought this...

Thanks op. Had forgotten about this game. And at this price I'll buy it... Then forget about it again!!

I reckon HUKD has pushed the player base of this game up quite a bit...

nice

​No. You've misunderstood me. The comment about being able to set 60fps on xbox one s that I quoted. It's the same res / framerate options on both systems, not just the one s.

I got it for free using my reward points,I mean how bad can it be for that.

I paid almost full price for the deluxe version at launch

ps4 or Xbox version​?

"On PS4 Pro, the game can run at a number of different resolution/frame rate combinations, including 1080p/30fps, 1080p/60fps, or 4K/30fps."

Oh, hell yes! Kudos for the devs, this is amazing news!

Has anyone had their order ship yet? This is my 3rd try at a cheap copy of Battleborn. None have come through yet!

Ordered from shop to following this post, but they cancelled my order without explanation
hotukdeals.com/dea…386

Then ordered from Amazon following this one and am still waiting for stock
hotukdeals.com/dea…800

Will this one actually ship?
Edited by: "moogaloo" 23rd Jan

Game has shipped my order, so have now cancelled on amazon

I gave in and purchased it. Can't complain at £3.59 haha. Hopefully it won't make me regret paying £28 for Overwatch which is amazing, may I add.
