That didn't take long as now we have a release date for Battleborn.
This of course being October 31st 1864 … This being the title from Gearbox and 2K Games that was being shown off in great form at Gamescom recently. Now we know when Battleborn is coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC for our five on five battle fun. Enough messing around here. The release date for Battleborn has been set to be February 9th of 2016. That is a lot closer to now than previously thought before. I know I need to stop with the Nevada jokes…
To go along with the release date announcement for Battleborn we also have a nice new trailer for the game to show off why we need to buy it. It does look a bit more and more like a Borderlands style is being used on the UI for Battleborn in it but this is the new game from Gearbox and not a hidden sequel to the game that has already captured the hearts of millions. Sorry. All we have is Battleborn and nothing more for any other IPs at this time. You can see it all in the Battleborn trailer just below for yourself though so you can enjoy that.
Battleborn — Can’t Get Enough
Okay. So it would suck if that was all that 2K Games had to give us for Battleborn out of Gamescom. I am sure that there will be some gameplay demo footage sometime soon for us to pick through but until then we also have a look at four more of the badasses we will get to choose from when Battleborn lands on February. There will be 25 different ones for us to use to kill each other with in the full game so we might as well get used to them in text form as you will get to read below. Time to hope that Gearbox gives us some good gameplay videos to show off for each baddass in Battleborn and not just text to read.
Ambra: Born into an ancient order of priestesses responsible for discovering a way to prolong life indefinitely, Ambra was betrayed by her leader and her faction, the Jennerit Empire, and now fights alongside the Battleborn. She is a specialist hero, dealing damage up close through her melee attacks and powerful abilities, while healing her allies in the process.
Mellka: A stealthy assassin, Mellka lost her parents at a young age before eventually earning her place among the Eldrid’s black op’s and intelligence bureau. Her life has been defined by a series of staggering losses, but her response to these losses was never despair – it was fury. She strikes quickly, disorienting foes with her nerve gas machine pistol and bio-glaive melee attacks.
Reyna: Known by her followers as “The Valkyrie,” Reyna was born aboard the Rogue faction’s ailing junk heap of a flagship and is a native to the last star system. Reyna has fought tirelessly for the freedom of her space pirate comrades, finding her calling as their inspirational leader. She dishes damage with her laser pistol and uses her command glove to support her teammates.
Benedict: August Benedict Jr. is one of several surviving races of bird-like “Aviant” refugees. He swore allegiance to the Peacekeepers where he’s gained considerable notoriety for being a self-centered jerk that’s capable of astounding destruction with his rocket launcher. Double jumping, rocket jumping, and flying – Benedict’s good at all of them and he lets his teammates know it.
Are you happy that you have a date to look forward to for Battleborn now? Are you going to rush out and pre-order it to make sure Gearbox has the money to keep making the games? Do these badasses above fit what you are looking for in Battleborn? Let us know and start the discussion down in the comments. I am sure that 2K Games will have a lot more to offer as we get closer to the release date so be sure to keep things locked in here for all of the Battleborn updates you could ever want…at least until February 9th.
