Battleborn: No more content after Fall Update

Gearbox's FPS/hobby-grade coop campaign/genre blended, multi-mode competitive e-sports/meta-growth, choice + epic Battleborn heroes game, Battleborn [official site], is being put out to pasture. By that I mean that the shooter has no more planned content on the horizon and creative director, Randy Varnell, is moving to another project but the servers are staying up for the time being.

Battleborn goes free-to-play. Sort of. Half of it.

My brother's elderly cat decided to start pooping behind the television rather than take himself outside. To combat this my mother set up a row of cacti at cat butt height behind the television and thus began a battle of wills which spanned that cat's remaining years. Speaking of free-to-play competitive multiplayer scenarios you can enjoy from the comfort of your living room, Battleborn has…

Battleborn Flopped But Take-Two “Not Counting It Out”

Battleborn [official site] publisher 2K will continue to support the game despite a performance which its parent company described as "below our expectations". You could also title this article:"I listened to the Take-Two Interactive Q1 2017 earnings conference call so you didn't have to." I was curious as to how the subject of Battleborn would be handled because, although Take-Two Interactive CEO, Strauss Zelnick, said…

Humble 2K Bundle Offers Spec Ops The Line For A Dollar

The latest offering from Humble Bundle is a stack of 2K games, including third-person horrors-of-war shooter, Spec Ops: The Line [official site] in the lowest tier. That's yours for a dollar or more but (the horror, the HORROR) you'll have to take a copy of Duke Nukem Forever as well. The Darkness 2 is the much more palatable final third of that one dollar selection.…

Battleborn Adds Cosmetic Microtransactions Tomorrow

Okay, shh shhh I'm going to do it. Keep quiet or you'll blow everything. If the news editor finds out I'm posting about another already-released game during E3 week, I'm really in for it. Though this is perhaps a game not many have even noticed is out, going by player numbers. Okay, I'm going to do it. One of you distract her for me -…

In Deep Water: Battleborn Introduces Alani

Gearbox's hero-centric shooter/MOBA/co-op project, Battleborn [official site], has given a proper look at the first of its five additional heroes - Alani, the water-bending warrior monk. Alice mentioned her a while back but there's now a run-down of her abilities if you're interested in playing as her. The official release is on 31 May but if you picked up a season pass or the digital…

Battleborn’s First Free Character Coming This Month

Battleborn [official site] will get its first free extra character later this month, Gearbox have announced. More specifically, Alani will arrive on Tuesday, May 24th for folks who've bought the DLC season pass, then May 31st for everyone else. Pip didn't really like Battleborn but if you're still playing then hey, I guess you do. You're probably quite keen to soon have some sort of…

Steam Top 10: The Stars Your Destination

Well, more accurately it's The Souls Your Destination, but Dark Souls III being a chart-topper is old news now. This week's Steam shaker-upper is Paradox's intergalactic grand strategy title Stellaris - but one of PC gaming's oldest men takes up residence in the top ten too.

Borderlands 3* On Gearbox’s Menu After Battleborn

Gearbox will be turning its attention to Borderlands 3* once the team has finished off work on their upcoming team co-op shooter Battleborn [official site] and its DLC. I thiiiiiink Borderlands 3 had already been confirmed in a bunch of "yeah, in the future" and "we want to" ways but this time there was mention of actual project staff by Gearbox's CEO Randy Pitchford and…

Gearbox’s Battleborn Open Beta Weekend Is Underway

We've mentioned before that Gearbox's multiplayer shooter Battleborn [official site] had an open beta test coming up, but that's now started so hey, here's me to remind you. Until Monday afternoon, you can download and play a chunk of Battleborn for free through Steam. If you want a go before the game launches or you , like me, are not quite sure what it even…

Gearbox’s Battleborn Delayed To May 2016

What will you be doing on February 9th, 2016? I can't see far enough into my own future to tell you tell you what I'm doing even on Monday, yet I can say with absolute certainty that you won't be playing the finished version of Battleborn [official site] then. Whoa, Nellie! Put down the pitchfork and flaming torch. This isn't witchcraft: Gearbox's multiplayer shooter has…

Blammo: Gearbox’s MOBA-y FPS Battleborn Due February

Most MOBA incursions into other genres have focused on the genre's competitive underpinnings, but Gearbox seem to be pushing co-op pretty hard with Battleborn [official site] - not surprising, given they're the folks behind Borderlands. It's all good and well me saying this, but what does it mean to you? You'll get to play it from February 9th, 2016, publishers 2K have announced at Gamescom.…

Mano A MOBA: Gearbox’s Battleborn E3 Trailer

I'd forgotten that Borderlands chaps Gearbox were making a MOBA-tinged FPS too. They are, a new trailer for Battleborn [official site] reminds me, though I wonder whether their recent silence on the game has reflected a rethinking of things. The 14 minutes of gameplay they showed last September looked a bit dull, with hordes of enemies lining up to plink away with harmless guns. Now…

Battleborn’s First 14 Minute Video Has All The Genres

I briefly dismissed Battleborn as a console game that didn't belong on these pages, before realising, no, wait, that's Bloodborne. Battleborn is instead Gearbox's multiplayer first-person shooter that takes easy co-op and a cartoon-y world reminiscent of Borderlands' and combines it with lessons from e-sports, MOBAs and MMOs. They call it a "hero-shooter", but what the heck does that even mean. There's fourteen-minutes of the…

Hello everyone, and welcome to another exciting episode of "It's A MOBA But..."! Today's mystery game is Battleborn!
