Oh, hey. Battleborn is out. After what seems like very little fanfare, the first is a series of hero-driven shooter games is available for you to play. Sporting a diverse cast of eclectic heroes, Battleborn’s filled to the brim with unique characters for you to play as.

You start with just the 7; Marquis, Miko, Montana, Orendi, Oscar Mike, Rath and Thorn. There are 18 for you to unlock in the game through playing, and not by whipping out your credit card. Each hero has two different ways of being unlocked. Some require playing through the game’s story mode, while others require assists and a large kill tally. All heroes can be unlocked through the game’s secondary XP system; Command Ranks. For every 2 Command Ranks you’ll unlock a new hero, which can be a time-consuming process.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
