Cough up your rockets and get ready to brawl! Rocket Brawl – the Benedict v. Benedict rocket launcher battle extravaganza – is coming to you next weekend!
If you need a bit of a refresher on what Rocket Brawl is, check out this statement by Battleborn’s own Producer, Anthony Nicholson:
“Rocket Brawl is another one of our mini modes similar to Tank Yankers designed with a specific wild and crazy playstyle in mind! In this mode, you play 5v5 on the map Aerie as Benedict and only Benedict. The objective of this mode is to hold capture pads that are fastened atop floating pillars in the sky with the first team to 1000 points being crowned the victor. Skill cooldowns are very low, allowing players to continuously glide around and lift-off while raining down rockets from the sky. BEWARE: the enemy rocket hawks are trying to ground you for good and stop your team from getting to the capture pads so do your best to dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge your way to victory!”
To coincide with Rocket Brawl, we’ll be running a sale on boosts and loot packs! Buff your Benedict with 15% off Double XP or Loot boosters, take advantage of the discounted VIP passes to unlock his (and everyone else’s) customizations, or crack open a loot pack for some helpful and stylish gear!
There are no hot fixes planned for this week, but we do have our weekly character rotation coming up. This week, free trial players will be able to get their hands on Alani, ISIC, Whiskey Foxtrot, Marquis, Deande, and Oscar Mike!
Today we shine our community spotlight on some breathtaking fanart with a fun and unique theme. Two different artists - @the_tentaprince and @leaddybum (aka Leaddyborn) – have taken Battleborn’s DLC Story Op missions as inspiration for gorgeous movie posters.
Tentaprince’s poster for Attikus and the Thrall Rebellion came first, and we think it perfectly captures the dark, film noir tone of the operation, while also being a marvel in composition and design! We especially love the simple, rich color palette and the eye-catching title!
Leaddyborn’s poster for Phoebe and the Heart of Ekkunar feels a lot different in tone. The vast range of colors, coupled with Phoebe’s determined expression, gives off a light, adventurous vibe that perfectly matches the swashbuckling maiden’s fun-loving personality.
We absolutely love Tentaprince and Leaddyborn’s unique takes on the DLC Story Op missions, and we can’t wait to see them put their personal spins on Oscar Mike’s Battle School, Toby’s Friendship Raid, and Montana and the Demon Bear!
Both Rocket Brawl and the Boosts and Loot Pack sale will begin at 8am PT/11am ET on Friday, July 28th and run until Monday, July 31st at 8am PT/11am PT. Be sure to keep an eye on our social channels for reminders!
