Gearbox’s Battleborn Proves Its for Every Kind of BadassThe universe teeters on the brink of extinction and only the most powerful Battleborn can stop it.
2K Games and Gearbox Software have debuted the E3: 2015 trailer for their upcoming first person shooter, Battleborn, and confirmed the title will feature 25 unique playable heroes.
Battleborn will focus on a band of heroes fighting to protect the universe’s very last star from a mysterious evil.
To defend it, players need to utilize every type of character and weapon — from cyborg hawkmen to samurai vampires to mini-gun wielding man-mountains. Slash and parry, run and gun, cast and dash, or simply obliterate foes while building and growing the team of heroes.
Players can choose a hero to fight alone or co-operatively alongside friends in story missions, or battle against them in fast-paced competitive multiplayer matches.
Game Modes and Features:
- Players: 1-5 Players Online; 5-Player co-op; Splitscreen (up to 2 players) and online
- 25 Characters: Take control of 25 vastly different heroes, each one with their own personality, equipped with unique weapons and powers
- Competitive Multiplayer: Experience team-based competitive multiplayer action with up to 10 players online in 5v5 matches across three distinctly different modes – Incursion, Devastation, and Meltdown
- Progression System: Earn experience points in every game mode to level-up individual heroes’ Character Rank, as well as your own player profile Command Rank
Battleborn will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this winter.
