Remember Battleborn? Well, now you can play it for free.
2K and Gearbox Software have revealed details of the Battleborn Free Trial, which gives unlimited access to the game’s competitive multiplayer gameplay modes and maps, without any time limits or level caps. The trial also offers access to a rotating roster of six playable heroes.
Players who have already purchased the game – and might be feeling a little grouchy about that purchase right now – will be awarded Founder Status. Founders will have access to a sizeable bounty of in-game item rewards, including loot packs, credits, and an exclusive Flair item.

Despite its troubled launch – which was obviously overshadowed by that game – Gearbox have continued to support Battleborn with new characters, missions, and gameplay tweaks. Whether the Battleborn Free Trial will see a change in the game’s fortunes remains to be seen, but it’s a welcome move that should certainly bring in some new players.
The Battleborn Free Trial is now available on Steam and Xbox One, and will be available on PlayStation 4 from June 13th, 2017.
