Battleborn: A New Era of Gaming


Gearbox Software, the creators of the popular Borderlands series, are back with their latest gaming masterpiece – Battleborn. This new IP, published by 2K, is set to revolutionize the gaming world once again. With its fusion of first-person shooting and RPG elements, Battleborn takes the excitement of MOBAs and injects it into an intergalactic first-person battle arena.

A Universe of Heroes

Battleborn’s dramatic story brings together a diverse range of heroes, each with their own unique abilities and playstyles. From immortal samurais to minigun-wielding giants, the game’s universe is filled with characters that will blow your mind. Gearbox’s innovative thinking has created a tremendous rogue’s gallery of playable heroes, allowing players to experience a variety of different first-person games within a single title.

Introducing Incursion: The Ultimate Battle

Game Informer’s August cover story features the first announced competitive match type for Battleborn – Incursion. This inventive 5 vs. 5 mode combines fast-paced first-person gameplay with strategic team-based elements reminiscent of popular MOBAs like League of Legends and Dota 2. Players engage in intense battles in lush jungles and arid deserts, while robotic NPC minions wage an ongoing tug-of-war. With a level playing field at the start of each match, players progress along a streamlined skill path, unlocking customizable abilities that allow for a variety of playstyles.

Unleash the Apocalypse

Gearbox’s unique universal apocalypse premise brings together a vast number of unlockable playable heroes. Each hero not only looks different but also controls like they’re from entirely different first-person games. Whether you prefer the classic space marine or a spry elven huntress, Battleborn has it all. This game fulfills the dream of pitting different archetypes against each other in a first-person shooter.
