Battleborn Features a Narrative Co-Op Campaign and 20 Champions to Choose From
Gearbox Software and 2K Games’ upcoming Co-Op First-Person Shooter, Battleborn has received its first batch of screenshots and some exciting gameplay details.
The game is reported to have a full-fledged narrative-based co-op campaign mode which can be played with upto five players or in split-screen mode. And to increase the replayability value of the game, the developers are targeting the inclusion of 20 playable characters.
Each of these 20 characters has its own weapon, abilities, attributes, and personality which set everyone apart.
During a competitive match, each player begins at Level 0 with Level 7 being the maximum. As the match progresses, players earn new abilities after each successive Level with unlocking the Ultimate Ability at Level 7 – an approach seeing in most MOBA titles.
However, the map has been designed in a manner which encourages alternate paths and character balancing. Instead of forcing players down pre-determined routes, the game allows players to climb onto a mountain or choose alternate paths to reach their desired destination.
The developers are also targeting inclusion of bodily animations which enable in-game characters to be aware of their bodies. A good example of this is the hat of a character named Marquis who will constantly be adjusting his hat while sprinting.
Skipping the last-gen consoles, Battleborn launches in 2015 across Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
