Battleborn Now Available Worldwide

2K and Gearbox Software have released Battleborn to the masses. 

Set in the distant future, Battleborn is a first-person shooter featuring 25 unique playable heroes who form an unlikely alliance to save the last star in the universe from a mysterious enemy hell-bent on its destruction.

The game combines highly-stylized visuals with Gearbox’s industry-leading co-operative combat, and offers a wealth of content in which to play its expansive collection of 25 diverse heroes, including a narrative-driven story mode and three different competitive multiplayer modes.
Regardless of the mode being played, players will experience deep and customizable character growth for all 25 playable heroes, each with their own unique weapons, powers and personality.
Battleborn’s story mode is a multi-chapter narrative experience that can be played alone or co-operatively by up to five friends splitscreen and 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.
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.  

2K and Gearbox Software recently announced details surrounding the downloadable content offerings in Battleborn, with five add-on packs to be released post-launch – each containing a PvE Story Operation, exclusive skins and taunts. Players may purchase all five add-on packs through the game’s Season Pass for $19.99, a savings of $4.95 versus buying all five packs individually.
In addition, the Battleborn Digital Deluxe Edition is now available for $74.99 and includes: 

  • Battleborn the game;
  • Season Pass with all five DLC packs and instant access to heroes 26-30 upon their release;
  • Taunts for Oscar Mike, Miko, Caldarius, Phoebe, and Orendi;
  • “Cyber” character skin for Oscar Mike, Miko, Caldarius, Phoebe, and Orendi;
  • 3 Legendary Gear packs;
  • Golden pedestal during character select;
  • Golden Battleborn logo on title screen. 

2K and Gearbox will also be supporting the game post-launch with many free content updates that include five new playable heroes, bringing the total roster to 30, and additional competitive multiplayer modes, maps, balance updates and community features.
