Synopsis


A tremendous band of badass heroes fight to protect the universe's very last star from a mysterious evil in this next-gen shooter by the creators of Borderlands. To defend it, you'll need to utilize every type of character and weapon you've ever imagined -- 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 all while building and growing your personal team of heroes. Choose your hero and fight alone or co-operatively alongside friends in story missions, or battle against them in fast-paced competitive multiplayer matches.

Features


Battleborn has a deep roster of 25 playable heroes and no two are the same. Every hero has their own personality and comes equipped with their own unique weapons and powers

Battleborn's Story Mode is a narrative experience that can be played entirely singleplayer, and is even better when it's played cooperatively with friends both splitscreen and online

Battleborn's team-based competitive multiplayer action can be experienced by up to 10 players online in 5v5 matches, and includes three distinct multiplayer modes

All experience points, whether earned through playing Battleborn's Story Mode or Competitive Multiplayer modes, contribute to leveling up individual Character Rank, as well as player profile Command Rank

Battleborn's accelerated character growth system allows players to level-up a character from 1 to 10 and fully experience each hero's unique weapons and powers in a single story mission or multiplayer match

    This game brings something new to he table for Gearbox. While the art style of Battleborn will have you reminiscing of your days playing Borderlands, the game pretty much leaves all its similaritie there. It has much more in common with League of Legends or DOTA 2 than your average multiplayer FPS. The game is about unique heroes that you must master, while choosing which of their stats to increase. It is part of a wave of new games called hero shooters. However, many compare this game to Overwatch. While both are onjective based arena shooters that put you in control of a hero with their own unique weapons, stats and abilities, these games have very little in common after that. Battleborn offers the ability to customize your hero as they level up in a match, choosing which of two traits to pick each level progression. Add this to the ability to deploy turrets, stat boosting structures and drones at designated spots on the map, and you have a game that will likely not play the same each time you play. The animations are beautiful, but can be a little over the top during intense moments, making it hard to play competitively, as you lose track of what's going on around you. The game also feels as though it isn't polished enough for it to be taken seriously as a competitive online game. However, the foundation and ideas that Gearbox has laid will make this game a definitive title in this new genre as they continue to update and add content to the game. Gearbox is actively working on this title, so look forward to all the little problems being smoothed over within the next year.

    If you like or enjoy MOBA style games and enjoy first person shooters, then this game is for you. It's a nice spin on FPS games since majority of them have adopted the call of duty style--not saying it's a bad thing--it's just not an innovative thing. This game introduces characters upgrades while you play and it has a co-op campaign mode alongside it's PvP multiplayer modes. Most games nowadays are not even putting campaign stories in their FPS which is a shame. Also, if you like borderlands, these are from the same creators.

    Battleborn was a good game released among a similar game that outshined it on release. Very fun game that has moba elements from a first person view. Grinding the gold and killing minions in a match is a bit tedious, but overall still fun game. The single player is kinda dumb.

    It is a shame this came out around Overwatch, because there really is a great game here. It plays more like a moba, which is interesting, and the characters are way cool. It is a different game than Overwatch, so if it goes on sale, pick it up.

    this game has the misfortune of releasing alongside Overwatch. Both are great games and are completely different and not comparable. If you enjoy Borderlands and League of Legends you will find this game to be quite interesting.

    My friends and I have a ton of fun playing this game together. I have no interest in the PvP aspect of the game, but the game keeps up with your skill and is a lot of fun for casual and try-hards.
