Story

Who are the battleborn?
Battleborn’s playable heroes are extraordinarily diverse and have unique personalities, weapons, play styles, and powers which can be augmented by the player.

Are there different classes to choose from in Battleborn?
Think of each of the different Battleborn as a class and a character all rolled up into one. Each Battleborn hero has a unique set of skills and capabilities distinct enough where each of these characters could be the main characters of their own games. For example, Rath of the Jennerit Empire wields swords and is a melee specialist who scoffs at other characters, like Oscar Mike, who uses guns and calls in airstrikes. Meanwhile, Thorn of the Eldrid is deadly accurate with her magic-infused bow and arrow and is strong when paired with Miko, who can heal and buff allies in between ninja-like attacks with deadly Kunai. Keep in mind that each Battleborn hero can also be customized both cosmetically and through game play builds that span various play styles or otherwise enable you to adapt to the very dynamic game play that unfolds.

Competitive Multiplayer

How many players will the Battleborn competitive multiplayer support?
Some game types are optimal for small and tight matches and other game types are best played with larger five-player teams working together against an opposing team of five. Game types and optimal team sizes are still in development, so final counts will be available sometime before the game launches.

What types of multiplayer match types are available?
Battleborn will support various multiplayer match types, including the Incursion match revealed in Game Informer’s exclusive cover story.
