Battleborne has an episodic story format, beta dates also announced
Gearbox’s upcoming game Battleborne will follow an episodic format for its story mode.
You and your friends will fight through eight chapters, plus a prologue. Each part will have a self contained story while following an over-arching plot over the course of the season as the heroes fight to save the universe’s last star.
Other good news abounds with the announcement of dates for the game’s open beta. PS4 owners will be able to play the beta from April 8, while Xbox One and PC players will be able to take part from April 13 (no announcement on cross platform or network play though). The beta itself will contain two chapters from the story, and also two of the game’s multiplayer modes. Additionally, you’ll have access to all 25 characters from the roster and the complete progression system.
Not bad at all.
