Coming soon to PS4, PC, and Xbox One platforms near you: The open beta for Battleborn! Developed by Gearbox Software (creators of Borderlands), next-gen shooter Battleborn brings us a futuristic war to save the last star remaining in the universe. With 25 heroes of varying personalities and abilities, you’ll be able to play either in Story Mode or a 5 vs 5 Competitive Multiplayer match.
The open beta will include two complete Story Mode episodes (The Algorithm and Void’s Edge), and two Competitive Multiplayer modes (Incursion and Meltdown). Story Mode will allow you to play either alone or on a team. Players will have instant access to 7 characters in the beta, with more being unlocked as you level up and complete objectives.
Exclusively for PS4 players participating in the open beta, you will immediately receive the hero character Toby (a penguin in a mechsuit), who will be playable during the beta. You will also receive the first DLC pack and instant access to the character Alani upon the official release of the game.
The open beta will be available for pre-loading on April 6th through the Playstation Network, Steam, and the Microsoft Store. PS4 players will have access to the beta starting April 8th, while PC and Xbox One users will be playing starting April 13th. The open beta will be closing on April 18th.
