Battleborn now has a free trial version
Shooter offers up its multiplayer component for free
2K Games and Gearbox Software have announced a new Battleborn Free Trial version, which offers unlimited competitive multiplayer.
Players can now pick up Battleborn as a free downloadable experience that grants full access to all competitive multiplayer gameplay modes and maps, without any time limits or level caps. There is a weekly rotation of six heroes from the roster of 30 total heroes. Progress with each hero and player account progression is also permanent, so when the same character comes back around players can pick them up where they left off.
For those new to the game there is a Training Mode, including an Incursion Tutorial to build up competitive multiplayer skills, and The Dojo, where players can test drive all 30 Battleborn heroes against waves of minions, regardless of whether they’re unlocked outside of The Dojo.
Players can unlock heroes, customizations for your favorite hero, experience boosters, or even the Story Mode Operations in the Marketplace individually via payment. In the Marketplace, you’ll find a number of items that can be purchased with Credits earned in-game or Platinum premium currency including Heroes, Cosmetics skins and taunts, Gear packs, XP and Loot Boosters, and more.
Players can also upgrade to the full game and unlock all 25 base characters, all eight Story Mode missions and the Prologue, as well as permanent access to private matches.
Anyone who’s already purchased and played the retail version of Battleborn prior to the launch of the Free Trial has been awarded Founder Status. You will also receive the Founders bonus content, including Legendary Gear, 1,000 Platinum, 50,000 Credits, Loot Packs and more, plus an exclusive “Founder’s Crown” Flair item.
More info on this new version can be found at the official website.
Battleborn was released back in May 2016.
