Battleborn Beta Saw Over Two Million Players, Three Gold Skins Unlocked
Available earlier this month, the Battleborn open beta saw over two million players across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, a new infographic from 2K and Gearbox reveals:
First off, we want to extend a huge THANK YOU to the over 2 Million badasses who played the Battleborn Open Beta! You freakin’ rock!
While you were busy slicing and dicing, running and gunning, and even clotheslining your way through two Story Mode episodes, two Competitive Multiplayer Modes, and taking Battleborn’s 25 unique heroes for a test drive; the Devs here at Gearbox were crunching the numbers to find out exactly how many times you cut short Geoff’s… er, Arachnis’ reign as Spider King.
Over the five days during the open beta, there were 1.1 million competitive multiplayer matches completed, 1.4 million Story mode episodes completed, and 27 billion shards collected. As a result of players reaching these milestones, Gearbox will release a SHiFT code on May 3 for three golden skins, one for ISIC, Benedict, and Shayne & Aurox. More details on how to redeem the code will be available soon.
Battleborn launches on May 3 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can read about the post-launch DLC plans over here.
