September 19, 2014 Written by Jason Dunning

Whereas yesterday’s Battleborn gameplay videos featured content from websites, today’s gameplay video comes directly from Gearbox and features commentary from Creative Director Randy Varnell and Writer Aaron Linde.

During the video, you’ll hear the members of Gearbox talk about how Battleborn was created, while also getting a 14-minute look at the game’s co-operative campaign beginning at 4:30 (Gearbox points out that the gameplay is from the pre-alpha version).

If you’re unfamiliar with Battleborn, here’s the description:

From the creators of the award-winning and best-selling Borderlands franchise comes Battleborn, a hero-shooter that fuses team-based first-person shooting with a deep roster of playable heroes. No two heroes play the same, and each has unique weapons, powers, and personalities that can be fully experienced in cooperative campaign mission, or over the course of a single competitive multiplayer match.

Battleborn’s story is set in a distant sci-fi fantasy future, where all but one star in the universe has gone dark at the hands of the vicious Varlesi. A single solitary beacon of hope remains – the last star, Solus. In the wake of the chaos, different species of survivors take refuge in the Solus system and form five factions based on their beliefs. Heroes called battleborn emerge from each faction and fight for what little resources are left in the system. Now, the Varelsi are threatening to finish what they’ve started, and only a united team of the universe’s most powerful heroes can stop them.

Battleborn is scheduled for release in 2015 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
