Battleborn introduces final heroes Kleese and El Dragon

The former Minion Robotics director and a space Luchador.


2K Games and Gearbox Software have introduced the final two Battleborn playable heroes, Kleese and El Dragon.

Both Kleese and El Dragonand depend on the Last Light Consortium’s technology to help them fight. Kleese hates getting his hands dirty, but El Dragon loves grappling his enemies with his cybernetic limbs.

The pair are available to play in both competitive multiplayer matches, as well as the game’s Story Mode, which can be played single-player, co-up with up to five players, or split-screen with two-players.

Details for each character are posted with each trailer below. More information is available at the Battleborn official website.

Battleborn is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 3.

Watch the trailers below. View a set of screenshots at the gallery.


leese was once director of Minion Robotics and is never without his made-to-order Battle Throne, complete with a smooth gliding propulsion system, an assortment of the finest cannons and tasers, defensive Energy Rift shield system and a miniature black hole generator.

El Dragon

El Dragon, the champion space Luchador, recently lost his arms in a professional wrestling match against the demented robotic artificial intelligence, ISIC. Ironically enough, the LLC patched him up with robotic arms and now El Dragon is more dangerous than ever, featuring a plethora of trademark moves like the Dragon Splash, a double arm clothesline, and his finisher En Fuego. He may have lost the title fight to ISIC, but El Dragon still considers himself the Undisputed Champ, and that swagger helps him increase his robotic power with every kill he makes.
