Battleborn – Closed Technical Test signup for team shooter is now live

[Register now] Developed by Gearbox Software, makers of the Borderlands series, Battleborn is a team-based online shooter launching on 9 February 2016 for consoles and Windows PC. Over at Paris Games Week, it was announced players can now sign up for the Closed Technical Test, along with a new game trailer. Interested gamers can pre-order Battleborn right now (not a Free-to-Play game).

 

Battleborn tells a story of  heroes fighting to protect the universe’s last star from a mysterious evil. To defend it, players will need to utilize every type of character and weapon ever imagined, from cyborg hawkmen to samurai vampires to mini-gun wielding man-mountains. Slash and parry, run and gun, cast and dash, or simply obliterate foes all while building and growing a team of heroes.
