Battleborn is a next-gen hero-shooter brought to you by the creators of the award-winning and best-selling Borderlands franchise. In Battleborn’s distant future, the only hope for the last star in a dying universe is a new breed of warriors, who must put aside their differences to drive back an unstoppable menace. Choose from a myriad of powerful heroes and fight together alongside your friends in an intense co-operative campaign, or battle against them in fast-paced competitive multiplayer matches.
The main game is a story-driven, multi-chapter campaign where you get to choose from 25 different characters drawn from five main factions all sworn to defend the planet of Solus. And it’s really those characters and their different skills and power ups that they possess that make Battleborn look an intriguing new release.
Aside from the main story mode there are also a number of multiplayer options which can be experienced with up to 10 players online. These include the fast paced deathmatch Capture, the traditional capture-the-flag sort of match which requires you and your team mates to take the zone and hold the fort.
Then, there’s Meltdown, an escort style mission that’s somewhat sadistic in nature when you guide as many of your minions to their doomed fate at the hands of the incinerator. Yes, you’ll want to throw as many minions in as possible to score more points.
Lastly, the Incursion mode is when you’ll need to hunker down and protect your base against waves of AI-controlled minions. Your own minions will come into play too, mostly as cannon fodder to target and attack the opponent’s base for the win.
It all adds up to a game that should have fans of sci-fi shooters getting itchy fingers ahead of the game’s release next May when it will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC
