Gearbox Software’s Battleborn will begin its open beta on PS4 come April 8th at 5 PM UTC. The PC and Xbox One beta will start on April 13th and it will go offline for all platforms on April 18th, 2 PM UTC.
The beta can be pre-loaded on April 6th, 12 AM UTC for PS4/Xbox One and 5 PM UTC for PC. It will have two story “episodes” with Void’s Edge and The Algorithm to play along with two multiplayer modes – Incursion and Meltdown. It was also noted that all 25 heroes will be playable.
As for the episodic structure, the full game’s story mode will have a prologue and eight episodes which each apparently being a story in itself. The season ends when the game finishes, which essentially fuels speculation of future seasons and episodes as DLC.
