Features:

Multiplayer

Battleborn’s team-based competitive multiplayer action can be experienced by up to 10 players online in 5v5 matches, and includes three distinct multiplayer modes.
  • Incursion: Teams of heroes must defend their base from waves of AI-controlled minions while working together alongside their own minions to destroy their opponent’s base.
  • Meltdown: Teams of heroes must guide their minions as they march to their death at the center of the map. Points are scored for every minion who throws themselves into the incinerator, and the team with the most points wins.
  • Capture: Teams of heroes face off in a fast-paced death match and must capture and hold objectives on the map to win.
  • Face-Off: Battle and exterminate Varelsi to collect their masks and score points, while balancing between helping your team collect masks and preventing the enemy team from doing so. All the while, the Varelsi get tougher including arena boss battles.

Persistent Progression System:

  • Character Rank: Each hero can permanently rank up from 1 to 20 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, and loot that can be used to benefit any hero the player chooses to command.

Factions:

  • The Peacekeepers are sworn protectors of Solus
  • The Eldrid are preservers of the natural order of the universe
  • The Rogues are mercenaries only concerned with their own survival
  • The Last Light Consortium (LLC) are war profiteers, exploiting others for their own gain
  • The Jennerit Empire rule others by force, valuing power above all else

Battleborn Heroes:

Battleborn has a deep roster of 30 playable heroes and no two are the same. Every hero has their own personality and comes equipped with their own unique weapons and powers.

Helix System:

Battleborn’s accelerated character growth system allows players to level-up a character from 1 to 20 and fully experience each hero’s unique weapons and powers in a single story mission or multiplayer match.
