Battleborn Beta Overview

The time has come! Assorted hero badasses assemble! You were born for this! The universe needs you to save the last star, Solus, from destruction at the hands of an evil entity whose best friend seems to be his right arm *cough* I mean, blood… So load up, pants up, and put the cheerios down. You are Battleborn!

Battleborn is an upcoming Online Multiplayer FPS developed by Gearbox Software and 2K Games for Windows, PS4 and XBox One. Yes, the creators of Borderlands are back, with a Battle-Arena styled game in a space fantasy setting, that will be featuring a Story Mode, which can be played solo or cooperatively (with up to 5 players instead of 4), as well as an Arena Mode, where you play 5v5 matches alongside and against other players.

There are up to 25 playable Heroes with unique abilities and also an ultimate ability. The characters have their own respective roles, such as Tank, DPS, Support, Healer, etc. but with different names, such as “Rogue”, “Sniper”, “Initiator”, etc. to hint at how to play the character.

What’s more… The Open Beta Weekend is here from 13 April to 18 April. Below I will be showcasing an Bot Arena match to reveal the chaos and fun that ensues in the game.

About Michael du Plessis

My favourite gaming genres are Survival Horror, Indie and RPGMaker, RPG, MMO and MOBA/RTS based games, especially if there is a good story behind it all. I started out in the Geek world by being a Spiderman fan from a very young age already, and then started gaming on PlayStation and a PC not long afterward. The first games I remember playing are Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, and even Spiderman! I then started getting a taste for Survival Horror on PC by playing Aliens vs. Predator 2. Since then the bug bit me. My favourite Survival Horrors include Amnesia, Outlast, Dead Space, and Five Nights and Freddy's. I'm a fan of cosplaying and started cosplaying in 2015 at Smallville Comics' opening of their 2nd store. I've been a huge fan of anime since an early age, and my favourite shows include Fairy Tail, Bleach, Naruto, and most recently; Tokyo Ghoul. I started doing Let's Plays as a hobby in 2013 and am happy to be able to continue with this passion with you guys!
