Gearbox Software's Battleborn is set to drop May 3, and today the studio has revealed that the story mode, which can be played solo, split-screen, or with up to five players cooperatively online, is structured like a season of a TV series. Which means that players will be able to tackle any of the eight episodes using any of the 25 playable characters on offer.
You are the commander of the Battleborn, an uneasy alliance of intergalactic heroes from five different factions who have banded together to stop a dark and mysterious enemy from destroying the universe. Under your command, the Battleborn must live together or die alone.
Each episode, which will take on average about an hour to complete, has been designed with replayability in mind. Which, with a stable of 25 characters to choose from, is certainly a good thing. And with loot, gear, and experience tied to both the story and multiplayer content, this means that Battleborn will be another 'always online' experience.
Post-release content is expected to follow this seasonal approach, with the game launching in May serving as a sort of Season One for the franchise. Check out the new story trailer below.
