Gearbox has announced its 27th Battleborn, Pendles. Pendles is a slender anthropomorphic reptile, equipped with poison, double kamas, and hightop sneakers.  

Pendles will be available for free to any Battleborn players with 47,500 in-game credits or by using one of the game’s hero keys, awarded via the season pass but not necessarily required for use on the new characters. No release date has been given, but he's expected to be available in the coming months. You can click on the image above to see Pendles in all his sneaker-wearing glory.

The recently revealed Alani enters early access today for any players who bought Battleborn's Season Pass or Digital Deluxe edition, or participated in the PlayStation 4 open-beta. She's available on all platforms and will release May 31 for all other players.
