Ive been wondering about this the last few weeks, I knew about Battleborn for a while but never payed much attention to it until a few months back when the beta was close to the public.
I was skeptical about the game, but after trying it out I changed my mind and I pre ordered right away, I have to say Im content with the game as a whole, but I have this disappointing feeling where I feel the game was not exposed to the public as much as it should have.
Maybe the devs/publishers didnt think the game would become a hit so their expectations were lower and thus they backed on funding the game’s publicity?
Whatever the case, its a shame the game came out in the same month as Overwatch, I know they are very different kinds of games, but around the internet all I hear is praise for it and very little for Battleborn, if at all.
Its a shame really, because I think both games do what they do well, but Battleborn is more complex and has more depth (to me) than Overwatch and the characters feel more diverse in their design and abilities.
Will Gearbox and 2K do something to maybe get more exposure for the game? I don’t want the game to be overshadowed by Overwatch as my one fear is losing people to play with and ultimately stop playing myself because of that.
