Meet the Battleborn in motion comic prequel


Daniel Anderson

Gearbox Software's Battleborn is out very soon and you can get to know the team in a new series of motion comics

Battleborn is out next week, which is a release that really snuck up on us.

It's an online FPS with some MOBA elements and 25 playable characters with different attacks and abilities. It's got a fun cartoonish style and it's not called Overwatch - this one is from the Borderlands guys at Gearbox software.

There's a space fantasy world to enjoy, with a load of alien races working together against the threat of the Varelsi and a single player campaign is also included - though it's more designed to be played with a team of four.

If you want to get an idea of what's behind the scenes in terms of story and characters, a series of motion comics have been released and you can watch all three below. They are fairly crude looking.

That game itself thankfully looks nothing like that, this trailer is probably a better indication of how the story mode at least will pan out.

Right now there doesn't seem to be a lot of buzz about Battleborn, despite it coming from a major studio and launching in just a few short days. We'll have to wait and see how the reviews stack up when they arrive online.

Battleborn is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC from the 3rd of May 2016.
