Today Gearbox Software and 2K Games announce two new Battleborn heroes through their partnership with Playstation. Attikus and Galilea are added to the character roster. These are number 19 + 20 of the 25 playable characters that will ship with the game.
Attikus Character Highlight
Slave. Laborer. Greatest warrior among the Jennerit underclass – the Thralls. All his life, Attikus’ been told what to do, shoved into the deepest mines of Tempest and kept down. Thanks to an experimental biotech harness, this already-imposing brute was given the one thing the Jennerit didn’t expect: Intelligence. The only thing more dangerous than a huge, imposing beast with an axe to grind against his oppressors…is a smart imposing beast with an axe to grind against his oppressors.
Attikus’ attacks are largely close-range damage with a chance of draining enemy shields – so only engage up-close if you must. Otherwise, keep your distance!

Galilea Character Highlight
A sacred order within the Eldrid, the Arbiters of Being were charged with undermining the Jennerit Empire’s technology, and Galilea was its most promising warrior. Entrusting her with a long undercover mission, Galilea was embedded within the Jennerit and worked her way through the recruits of the Silent Sisters. During an attempt to sabotage their Sustainment technology, Ambra discovered and attacked Galilea, mortally wounding her. Once a close friend, Ambra attempted to use Sustainment to save Galilea’s life but it was only partially successful. Now unstable, immortal and reeking of life-draining dark energy, Galilea is at war with herself and her new powers as she hopes to find a new purpose among the Peacekeepers.
Galilea’s main weapons – her Greatsword and Greatshield – mark her as a deadly foe up-close, but that shield can also be launched at enemies. Also beware the dark energy that courses through Galilea – it can heal her in battle as well as siphon the health of enemies.
This hero i discovered a while back and linked it to a piece of gear. You might remember the article “who is whiskey foxtrot“. Well we know who the hero is now, but that leaves us with the piece of gear. For more info on Galilea checkout Galilea’s profile page for a more in-depth look of this hero.
