Dive solo into Battleborn’s Story Mode or bring some friends for up to 5-player co-op in two full episodes, “The Algorithm” and “Void’s Edge.” Then challenge other players to duke it out in two Competitive Multiplayer Modes: Incursion and Meltdown.
In the Open Beta, you’ll start with 7 unlocked heroes and you’ll unlock more as you rank up and complete objectives. Experience the natural progression of the game as you unlock heroes, skins, taunts, titles, and more. Test out Battleborn’s multiple progression systems where playing either Story Mode or Competitive Multiplayer Modes will earn you XP towards temporary Helix augmentations as well as persistent Command Rank and Character Rank levels.
As a thank you to PS4 players who participate in the Open Beta, you will receive the first Battleborn DLC Pack 1 and instant access to the 26th character, Alani, upon release. In addition, PS4 players will have access to the Battleborn hero Toby (the mech-driving penguin!) during the Open Beta.
An Introduction to the End of the Universe
The end of the universe isn’t pretty. Hell, here in the Solus System, we’re looking down the barrel of extinction. The Varelsi are consuming stars – whole stars! – while we’re fighting amongst ourselves over the few remaining table scraps of existence. And if we ever catch up with Rendain, that treacherous jerk will get what’s comin’ for selling out every sentient being left.
Nihilistic robots, dwarves, space luchadores, interstellar soldiers, penguin-piloted murder machines and lots of others, all teaming up to save what’s left of the Universe… that’s Battleborn.

The fight to save the last star in the universe begins May 3, 2016.
