An extremely violent acid trip.
Gearbox’s newest game, Battleborn, keeps in the studio’s tradition of really playing with the conventions of the shooter genre- in this case, by really evolving what a multiplayer shooter can be like. This launch trailer for the game, which you can see for yourself below, tries to sell that premise to the viewer as best it can in its short runtime.
On the whole, it comes as one overwhelming montage of extremely colorful violence- I imagine this is what an extremely violent acid trip feels like, actually. We get to see lots of gameplay footage, character intros, and some of the maps and levels on offer. You can check out this trailer for yourself below.
Battleborn itself will be made available to players on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on May 3- and after its extremely successful beta, which saw over 2 million players participate, I think it is safe to conclude that this will be another runaway success for Gearbox.
