Battleborn beta

Battleborn, Gearbox’s chaotic looking new first person ‘hero shooter’ goes into Open Beta today (Friday the 8th) on PS4 with players able to download the beta right now the Playstation store, while Xbox One and PC owners will be able to join in Sunday the 13th.

Battleborn is a fun blend of fast paced first person shooter action and MOBA-style gameplay, with a focus on heroes, competitive multiplayer, teamwork and in-match levelling. The Battleborn Open Beta kicks off at 10am PST today (the 8th) on PS4, and will kick off on PC and Xbox on the 13th at 10am PST.

It’s a sizeable Beta too – offering 2 Story Mode missions, 2 multiplayer modes and 25 heroes (some playable at the start and some unlockable through gameplay). Each of the heroes has wildly different characteristics, abilities and playstyles, and all are imbued with the quality of character design that we’ve come to expect from the creators of Borderlands. A colourful, competitive FPS with plenty of characters and plenty of character.

UPDATE: This Beta Is No Longer Available (The Game Has Been Released)
