2K and Gearbox Software have announced that Battleborn, the new first-person hero-shooter from the creators of Borderlands, is now available worldwide for the PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
Battleborn is set in the distant future and features 25 unique playable heroes. They form an unlikely alliance to save the last star in the universe from a mysterious enemy hell-bent on its destruction.
Battleborn’s story mode is a multi-chapter narrative experience that can be played alone or co-operatively with 2-player splitscreen or up to five friends online. Each chapter is like an episode of a television show, with each episode’s unique plot both standing on its own and pushing the overarching story of the game forward.
Watch the Battleborn launch trailer below:
The game’s three different competitive multiplayer modes can be played by up to 10 players online in action-packed 5v5 matches, and includes three distinct multiplayer modes.
- Capture: Teams of heroes face off in a fast-paced death match and must capture and hold objectives on the map to win;
- Meltdown: Teams of heroes must guide their minions, as they march to their death at the center of the map. Points are scored for every minion who throws themselves into the incinerator, and the team with the most points wins;
- Incursion: Teams of heroes must defend their base sentry bots from waves of AI-controlled minions while working together alongside their own minions to destroy their opponent’s sentry bots.
Battleborn will also be expanded post-launch with five downloadable add-on packs – each containing a PvE Story Operation, exclusive skins and taunts. Players may purchase all five add-on packs through the game’s Season Pass.
