Battleborn is going to give players a very different way of experiencing the story, with the game presented in a TV season style. Collectively, the “season” included with the game has one large over-arching story spanning eight episodes (plus a prologue), and each episode tells a self-contained story about your heroes’ fight to save the last star, Solus.
You won’t have to wait long to give Battleborn’s episodic story a try, as today 2K and Gearbox Software announced that Battleborn’s Open Beta begins on April 8th on PS4 and April 13th on PC and Xbox One. The Open Beta will include access to two story episodes – Void’s Edge and The Algorithm – two of the game’s three competitive multiplayer modes – Incursion and Meltdown – all 25 playable heroes, loot, gear, and the game’s full progression systems.
Look for Battleborn on May 3rd for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
