During the “Come With Me” trailer of Ready Player One there are once again some Battleborn cameos. Just like the previous trailer I got some cool screen grabs for your enjoyment. Right off the bat at the 10 second mark there is Attikus walking casually in the background of the screen. Later on in the trailer we meet up with him again. At the 1:08 mark we can spot Attikus fighting in the background as he is ready to deliver a blow. Everyone’s favorite avian also flies by at the 1:42 mark. As the hero of the movie drives over the battlefield in his Delorean (Back to the Future), we can see Benedict jump up in the background ready to shoot some rockets from the sky. As the camera pans over the battlefield as the good guys(?) make their way to an assault we can once again spot El Dragón (1:47 mark).
Ready Player One Screenshots
When i was diving into these easter eggs I was also checking out some of the posters from the movie. When I got to the Twitter banner of the “Official Ready Player One” account I noticed something weird. I recognized the battlefield shot where all the heroes make their assault. I know that El Dragón is on the front line of that charge, well we know he is a fast character so it would make sense. But El Dragón was on there twice !!! So i pointed this out on social media. I asked Gearbox if El Dragón had a twin brother or if there where two people who picked the same avatar. To this Randy Pitchford replied that the cat is out of the bag.
Damn, now the cat is out of the bag that El Dragon has a twin brother, El Tiger.

Ready Player One
Ready Player One is an upcoming sciencefiction movie by Steven Spielberg. It’s a movie adaptation from the book written by Ernest Cline. The film centers on a young outcast named Wade Watts. He like many others escape from their daily drudgery by logging onto a MMO game called ‘The Oasis’. Here they become the avatar of their choice, that’s why all the different video game characters show up. When the creator of the game dies an easter egg hunt will commence. The player who finds the easter egg in The Oasis will be rewarded with lots of fortune. Watts gets in on the action and finds himself facing off against corporate foes who will go to great lengths to get the money in both the real world and in The Oasis.
Isn’t this awesome!
But which Battleborn hero will be your avatar in The Oasis ?
