Battleborn won’t just task you with joining your chums and taking on an unrelenting horde of NPC enemies — there are PvP modes too. After all, where the reward in fighting the hapless AI? Fight hapless friends instead.
Take a look at the competitive multiplayer trailer below.
For a more in-depth look, check out our Battleborn PvP hands-on.
Three modes will vie for your attention, pitting up to ten players against each other in 5v5 matches.
Capture: Players face off in a fast-paced deathmatch and must capture and hold objectives on the map to win.
Meltdown: Teams must guide their minions as they march to their death at the center of the map. Points are scored for every minion who throws themselves into the incinerator, and the team with the most points wins.
Incursion: Teams must defend their base from waves of AI-controlled minions while working together alongside their own minions to destroy their opponent’s base.
A small closed technical test is kicking off this week, if you want to take a look yourself. You can sign up here.
