Battleborn

About Battleborn

Battleborn is developed by the teams behind the critically acclaimed hybrid role-playing-shooter Borderlands 2, and is an ambitious fusion of genres. The game combines highly-stylized visuals and frenetic first-person shooting, with Gearbox’s industry-leading co-operative combat, and an expansive collection of diverse heroes. Battleborn is set in the distant future of an imaginative science-fantasy universe where players experience both a narrative-driven co-operative campaign, as well as competitive multiplayer matches.

PAX Prime 2014 has come and gone, but the memories we made will live with us forever, especially for one couple -- congrats Cassie and John! Fans were able to take all for Vault Hunters for a spin in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, go hands-on with Tales from the Borderlands for the first time ever, and were even treated to a special Borderlands-themed magic trick from Randy Pitchford at the 'Inside Gearbox Software' Panel. 

Special thanks to the team at Penny Arcade, ReedPOP and the volunteer Enforcer staff for making these awesome events possible (multiple times!) each and every year!

Catch up with all of the happenings at this year's expo after the jump. ...READ MORE
