Battleborn gameplay features
Battleborn is a fun, colourful first-person shooter that incorporates multiplayer online battle arena elements. It’s set on a star called Solus where each species fled to in order to escape when their planets and stars were destroyed by Varelsi.
Unusually, in the multiplayer mode, players will start with the same base level and they’ll unlock new skills and abilities during a match. The levelling system will reset when the next match begins. But there’s also progression for characters and players outside of the missions and matches, to help you unlock new skills and badges and titles.
To start with, there will be 25 playable characters with different abilities and weapons. One character has a katana, for example, while another has a bow for long-range attacks, and some have healing abilities.
Modes will include arena mode Meltdown, base-destroying mode Incursion and base-capture mode Devastation.
There’s also going to be a Story Mode that players can choose to take on alone or team up with friends online or even split screen.
