Enjoy the Booms, Bangs and Butt Theatrics of Battleborn’s New Trailer

No announced AAA game outside of Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Hitman seem to be more under the radar than Battleborn. Perhaps this is due to 2K’s recent struggle to produce a consistent post-Borderlands shooter franchise, or perhaps this is just a result of the massive titles that seem to be hitting our televisions and monitors every week. One thing is for sure, we are forgetting that Gearbox knows how to deliver a consistently humorous, charming and mechanically sound first-person shooter. Then again, with the disaster that was Aliens: Colonial Marines, Gearbox has been known to deliver a clunker every now and then as well.

Gearbox and 2K have released a brand new trailer detailing the central villain in this world, Lord Rendain. At this point, this goofy character is simply being used to provide context to a whole host of ridiculous gameplay footage that, while entertaining, still sort of fails to answer the most important question of all: what in the world is this game?

Battleborn is set to release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 9, 2016.
