[Game website] With E3 2015 coming soon, 2K Games just revealed a new trailer for Battleborn, an upcoming online shooter for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Developed by Gearbox Software (Borderlands series), the game tells a story of how a tremendous band of badass heroes fight to protect the universe’s very last star from a mysterious evil. Sounds simple, but I dig simple.
Battleborn’s multiplayer gameplay will see 10 players against each other in 5 vs 5 matches. The current three modes include:
Incursion: Teams of heroes defend their base from waves of AI-controlled minions while working together, alongside their own minions, to destroy their opponents’ base.
Devastation: Teams of heroes face off in a fast-paced death match and must capture and hold objectives on the map to win.
Meltdown: Teams of heroes protect their minions as they march to their death at the center of the map. Points are scored for minions who throw themselves into the incinerator, and the team with the most points wins.
While in multiplayer and story mode, players will be able to level up their characters with the Helix System. All experience players earn goes into a ranking system divided between two systems:
Character Rank: Each hero can permanently rank up from 1 to 10 outside of missions and matches, allowing players to swap out augments in their helix skill tree, as well as unlock skins.
Command Rank: Players can rank up their own player profile, unlocking badges and titles to impress friends and loot that can be used to benefit any hero the player chooses to command.
