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.

Taunts are important in the world of Battleborn. What better way is there to celebrate a hard-fought victory than by doing a set of one-handed push-ups next to the body of a recently defeated foe? (We're looking at you, Oscar Mike!)

We're already working on all kinds of awesome taunts for the game and want to give you the chance to influence our next taunt! That's why we're going to create an in-game taunt based on the winning submission of the #IAmBattleborn Taunt Contest

This is your chance to have your taunt included in Battleborn and used as a victory celebration by millions of players around the world. Got a killer taunt idea? Here's how to enter:

Step 1: Create a video of your character taunt. You can pick any of the revealed Battleborn characters including the four newly announced badasses – MellkaAmbraBenedict and Reyna! Act it out on camera and make sure the shot doesn’t feature other people – you’re the star!

Step 2: Upload the video to YouTube (no longer than 30 sec), Vine or Instagram. At the beginning of the video, make sure to clearly indicate what character the taunt is for (show a sign to camera or shout the character’s name out loud).

Step 3: (Option 1 – Twitter) Post your video in a tweet to @Battleborn and make sure to include #IAmBattleborn #Contest in your tweet

Example : Hey @Battleborn, check out my badass entry to the #IAmBattleborn #contest <link to video>

(Option 2 – Facebook) Post your video as a response to the post announcing the competition

 The #IAmBattleborn Taunt Contest is open now through September 10, 2015, so act fast! Click here for official contest rules.



As we prepare for the release of Battleborn on February 9, 2016, the teams at Gearbox Software and 2K will be testing various aspects of the game and online infrastructure in an ever-expanding series of closed technical tests.

If you're interested in helping out with the testing, click here to sign up!


Yesterday was the Inside Gearbox Software panel at PAX Prime 2015! If you missed it, watch the panel on demand for the latest updates on Battleborn, Borderlands, and Homeworld -- along with a little bit of magic and a few surprises, too!

During the panel, we also announced Battleborn's upcoming Closed Technical Test phase. If you're interested in helping out with the testing, you can sign up here.


It’s that time of the year again -- the heat is starting to break, the leaves are thinking about what color they’d like to turn this fall, and a bunch of Gearboxers are heading to Seattle to hang with the community at PAX Prime!

We’ve got a lot in store for you this year with our partners at 2K and Telltale Games, including playable Battleborn game stations, a “Cospital” cosplay repair station, a Tales from the Borderlands Crowd Play event, and of course, the surprise-laden Inside Gearbox Software panel. You can find the full schedule below:

Inside Gearbox Software Panel – 4:00 PM – Friday, August 28 – Main Theatre

This is your opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at Gearbox Software and get the latest news and updates from the makers of Borderlands, Battleborn, Homeworld Remastered Collection, and more!  We will have never-before-seen reveals, exclusives, and surprises, so don’t miss out! Note: these panels typically fill up, so arrive early! 

This year’s panel will be hosted by two incredibly funny gentlemen of the Chainsawsuit: The Podcast, Kris Straub and Gearbox’s own Mikey Neumann!

We also think we can do something super rad if enough Battleborn cosplayers show up to the panel!

If you can’t make it live, have no fear! The Inside Gearbox Software panel will be broadcasted live on the Official Gearbox Software Twitch channel.

Gearbox Autograph Sessions – 5:30-7:30 PM – Friday, August 28 – Queue Room

Gather your posters, game boxes, cosplay props (or whatever else you’d like to get signed) and join us in the Queue Room immediately following the Inside Gearbox Software Panel for an autograph session with the Gearbox team!

Tales from the Borderlands Crowd Play – 8:30 PM – Saturday, August 29 – Wyvern Theatre

Join Tales from the Borderlands: A Telltale Games Series devs and cast for a special "Crowd Play" event on Saturday, August 29th at 8:30pm, where we'll be playing Episode 4: 'Escape Plan Bravo' LIVE on a theater-style setup fit for Handsome Jack himself.

We'll need all 500 audience members to help us steer the decisions in this penultimate episode of the season, so come equipped with your shouty voice and ready to participate in an evening that should be loads of fun (and probably just a little bit ridiculous). Cosplay is welcomed, and fair warning: there will be giveaways!

Playable Battleborn Stations – Friday, August 28 through Monday, August 31- Booth #1214

Come by the 2K Booth (#1214) to go hands-on with a story mode mission from our upcoming team-based shooter, Battleborn! Choose one of ten of the announced Battleborn heroes and fight through the frozen hellscape of Bliss with four friends.

While you’re there, don’t forget to take your photo with our larger-than-life Battleborn statue!

The Cospital – Friday, August 28 through Monday, August 31 – Outside Main Hall

We’re setting up a triage station built to handle almost any cosplay emergency! Whether you need a changing room, want to mend some stitching, or just an extra line of hot glue, stop by and take advantage of our complimentary cosplay supply closet right outside of the main show floor.

We’ll also be holding various cosplay tutorials, contests, giveaways and more at the Cospital throughout the weekend, so come by frequently to see what’s going on. All are welcome!


Battleborn, a new first-person shooter for every kind of badass will be available on February 9, 2016 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. 

Command 25 unique heroes and save the universe from the brink of extinction! Fight alone or alongside friends, play story missions or mow down foes in competitive multiplayer matches.  

Four new badasses enter the fray in this trailer: Ambra, Reyna, Mellka, and Benedict.
