The final Battleborn story operation is arriving soon, featuring Phoebe as the main protagonist delving deep into the heart of the planet Ekkunar. Phoebe and her fellow Battleborn will delve into an Aztanti ruin to investigate a mysterious signal coming from the core of the planet.
As we fight down to the centre, we will encounter Thrall assault teams attempting to find the same signal, as well as the Varelsi, including a Varelsi that talks to the Battleborn. That alone is quite awesome. In the Gearbox reveal stream, we are told that players will learn a lot more about the Thrall and the Varelsi other than the 1-dimensional view we are given of them as enemies of the Battleborn.
Being a story operation, there are 10 different playthroughs, each revealing a little more lore and uncovering a bit more of the story. There will be new taunts and two new skins to unlock, as well as a myriad of new titles to acquire. Phoebe and the Heart of Ekkunar will be released on February 23rd 2017.
