Available now on Steam
, PlayStation Network
, and the Microsoft Store
, the Open Beta for Gearbox's Battleborn is now, err, open for business. With access to two story missions, seven heroes, and a couple of competitive modes, this is your chance to dive in and become a galactic hero. Well, for a few days at least. So if you do decide to give it a spin, let us know what you think!
Mine is downloading now on Xbox One (gamertag 'Toadovsky'), and having only seen a few trailers on the game, and recently playing a bunch of the original Borderlands I'm keen to see how it plays. Especially when compared to something like Overwatch.
Dive solo into Battleborn’s Story Mode or bring some friends for up to 5-player co-op in two full episodes, “The Algorithm,” and “Void’s Edge.” Then challenge other players to duke it out in two Competitive Multiplayer Modes: Incursion and Meltdown.
In the Open Beta, you’ll start with 7 unlocked heroes and you’ll unlock more as you rank up and complete objectives. Experience the natural progression of the game as you unlock heroes, skins, taunts, titles, and more. Test out Battleborn’s multiple progression systems where playing either Story Mode or Competitive Multiplayer Modes will earn you XP towards temporary Helix augmentations as well as persistent Command Rank and Character Rank levels.
The open beta for Battleborn will conclude on April 18, with the full game set to release on May 3. To find out more about the open beta head to the offical site
