Gearbox Software, the developers of Battleborn have recently spoken about adding micro-transactions called Platinum Packs and expanding their marketplace. On June 16th, Gearbox has released a new update which will expand their marketplace. This update went live on the PlayStation Network, the Xbox marketplace, and Steam.
Gearbox will allow you to purchase these items directly, unlike Overwatch's "mystery" crates. The Platinum Packs will include a wide variety of taunts and character skins. Along with Platinum Packs, they will be releasing DLC's and brushing up on the game's cosmetics to make your characters and the game more enjoyable and make your character the eye-candy of the lobby.
The Platinum Packs prices are the following: $1.99 for 230 platinum, $4.99 for 700 platinum, $9.99 for 1,625 platinum, $19.99 for 3,500 platinum, and $49.99 for 9,300 platinum points. Each skin will cost 420 platinum and each taunt will cost 230 platinum. In the new update, Gearbox will also include taunts for Ghalt, Oscar Mike, Benedict, Shayne & Aurox, El Dragon, Whiskey Foxtrot, Kleese, and Alani. Gearbox has also revealed four new skins that will be available in the upcoming update, and you can view all four in the gallery.
They will be releasing five DLC's that will be able to be purchased in their marketplace. Some skins and taunts can only be unlocked by playing the Story Operations. Paralleling these astonishing additions, Gearbox is finding new and easier ways players can add loadouts, bank spaces, and boost their XP and credits without affecting the actual gameplay. Gearbox is asking for your help and wants to hear your voice. They want to know what you would like to see in the marketplace, you can post in their forums to get your voice heard.
Battleborn is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
