Battleborn, Gearbox’s shooter, has officially gone free to play. The new version of the game will feature unlimited access to the multiplayer modes and maps. 6 heroes will be available to play at any one time, and will be swapped out weekly.

Players who already own the game will be treated with the Founder title and Founders bonus content, including Legendary Gear, 1,000 Platinum, 50,000 Credits, Loot Packs and more, plus an exclusive “Founder’s Crown” Flair item.

Looks like it’s time for me to download Battleborn.

I am eager to get my hands on this open beta again as I wasn’t too impressed with the closed beta a couple months back. The game had promise, it just didn’t blow me away like I thought it would…
