Gearbox released two new videos to show off the new character for Battleborn
. Alani is a support with the ability to heal and also a bit of damage and crowd control. Here's Gearbox's summary of her abilities:
TORRENT: Through years of training in Ket, her order’s martial art, Alani has honed her ability to control water, hurling water bolts to damage enemies.
WELLSPRING: Channeling her focus and strength, Alani heals herself for a small amount or envelopes an ally in water to heal them.
RIPTIDE: Alani sends forth a wave of water that deals damage to enemies, pushes them away, and leaves a trail hastening allies’ movement speed.
GEYSER: Calling upon the power of the oceans, a groundswell erupts, knocking enemies into the air, damaging and binding them.
EMERGENCE: Alani summons a water dragon that deals damage to everything caught in its wake.
(Passive) OSMOSIS: Alani’s healing abilities swell and recede like the tide. Successfully landing hits with Torrent grants up to three stacks to temporarily increase the healing power of Wellspring.

And finally a taste of Alani gameplay here:
Gearbox is also offering a taste of the next hero following Alani. He's a bit of a reptile, and apparently has a relationship with Ghalt.
Alani is available right now to season pass holders. She'll be available to all beginning May 31st.
