Gearbox has announced some exciting changes coming to its team-based FPS "Battleborn," which could be the game's biggest update yet. "Battleborn's" Winter Update includes enhanced player experience packed with modes and awesome refinements that both noobs and veterans will love.

"Battleborn" Winter Update Details

The Winter Update should unlock all 25 characters immediately after completing Prologue. Moreover, character unlock challenges have been rebalanced and will award brand new skins upon completion. Story Mode missions are revamped to be more rewarding and usher in training for other modes. There will be two story modes, which include a PvP tutorial in solo or in groups of three, and a dojo for testing characters against AI. Players will learn how to make their way through waves of minions and have the option to practice with each "Battleborn" hero offline.

The succession of updates is all about rewarding existing "Battleborn" players by making the economy more straightforward, providing more reasons to check in regularly and more amazing features. Once the update rolls out, only Core Pack loot packs will be available on the Marketplace. These Core Packs have more chance of unwrapping rare gear, and can contain all content previously found in Faction packs. Other types of loot pack can be seen in story mode. More details are available at the official "Battleborn" website.

"Battleborn" PS4 Pro Support

"Battleborn's" Winter Update adds PS4 Pro support, which will allow players to choose between 1080p at 60fps or 4K at 30fps. Full details will be revealed during a livestream at Gearbox's Twitch channel from 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET on December 8, reports PlayStation Lifestyle.

The Winter Update announcement comes less than a month after "Battleborn Day," which was initiated by fans and supported by Gearbox to bring players back to the game. The game is currently on sale in North America as part of the Holiday Sale Week 1. "Battleborn" was released in May and is available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
