Well, it’s good to be back! As relaxing as the Thanksgiving break was, it’s good to return to battle… planning. During the break we welcomed an influx of new players into the ranks of the Battleborn, so if this is your first Battleplan, welcome! With that in mind (and since we’re looking at another slow week as we get the Battleborn news machine warmed up again), we thought it would be fun to revisit the past a little bit by featuring a couple videos from around launch time. Think of it as a nostalgic refresher if you were around then. If you’re new blood, then maybe this is first time viewing for you, so enjoy!

More of a PVP player? We can help you out there, too.
Maybe you’re looking for a more “high level” overview of Battleborn? Then try our “Bootcamp” trailer:
Like what you see here? There’s plenty more where that came from on the Battleborn YouTube channel!
While we didn’t have a full Battleplan last week, we did end up making a few last-minute changes before the break. We detailed these in a “mini-Battleplan” of sorts. The changes included some Kid Ultra adjustments as well as a change to PVP queues on PS4. You can get caught up on last week’s mini-Battleplan HERE if you missed it.
As you may remember, a couple weeks ago, we were thrilled to be able to support “Battleborn Day”, the community created event to celebrate Battleborn! A big part of Battleborn Day was centered on seasoned players welcoming in new players and showing them the ropes. The whole day was a huge success and we’re looking forward to bringing you more info on how it was put together from the creators themselves soon. In the meantime, we thought we’d share a few stats with you that we think show what a success Battleborn Day was.
