edit: yeah, it might look stupid that I posted the same thing, but my (original and earlier) post was moved here. :smiley:

So I guess that’s 5 heroes for each faction right? Are picks in competitive matches going to be limited to faction vs. faction or can you mix and match?

Hopefully the E3 news will be an open beta for the multiplayer.
Game informer said there’s no lanes in incursion mode(or at least the map they saw?) D:
really wanna see how the plays.

For real, Red Sword guy is the coolest guy with red swords.

Single player is good. Does that mean enemies will be scaled to accommodate, or will we be getting AI teammates?

Right now, scaled. We did that fairly successfully in Borderlands.

Team Thorn! Finally a release date and more gameplay shots. I’m hyped.

Yeah, pretty happy about the shots in that trailer. Apart from the HUD being hidden, a large portion of that trailer was created directly from gameplay. I think the game is pretty. But I may be biased!

@Jythri Looks awesome ! Digging the artstyle !! You and the team are doing a BADASS Job !!!

OMG! 25 characters
1 character = 100 men weeks (told at Pax)
1 men week = 40 hours

40 x 100 = 4000 hours per character
4000 x 25 = 100.000 hours on character design and then you also have to make enemies & bosses. :dizzy_face:

How long is the campaign?

Oh wow this is incredible!

Solo = YAAAAAAAY!!!

Fly guys look amazing (Did I see CSSSSSSSSSST?)

25 characters? I thought it was only 20, although I guess it makes sense otherwise faction V faction multiplayer matchs would be impossible without doubling-up.

Yeah, but I really hope we can choose to have bots as teammates also!

I really hope we can freely fly with that Eagle dude.

trailer looked nice, this and Fallout 4 about the same time, hmmm, gonna be a hard choice, E3 will decide it for me I guess, looking forward to seeing more of this and F4. Nice job to the devs, this looks nice, solo play is a plus

Is it just me or does Rath kind of look like Handsome Jack also can’t wait to play as Thorn, actually i can’t wait to get this game

This will be coming out well after Fallout 4.

I’d expect Battleborn in January.

thought one of their adds said this winter, but ya that could go into next year, guess will maybe here for sure at E3, stocked for Fallout 4 thow, defenantly on my radar.
