Battleborn Closed Technical Test Opens on October 29, Register Now for Access

With registration available through the official website (you’ll need to create a SHiFT account), Gearbox and 2K announced today that the Battleborn closed technical test starts October 29 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Gearbox says:

Starting on October 29 we will need your help conducting a series of Closed Technical Tests on PS4, XBOX ONE, and PC to balance characters, stress servers, squash bugs, and test the online infrastructure.

So, if you’re interested in helping us test out Battleborn and want to be one of the first people in the world to get their hands on this new breed of first-person shooters, register by going to

Gearbox notes that registering does not guarantee participation and “participants are selected on a number of criteria based on the needs for testing, including (but not limited to) platform preference, location, availability, and acceptance of the NDA.”

As per the NDA, you won’t be able to capture gameplay footage, livestream, post images, or publicly discuss the technical test on the internet outside of the private forum. This is all because Gearbox is “still very much working on Battleborn and things will change before the game ships in February.”

Depending on your platform, the Closed Technical test file download will require 4GB – 8GB.

Battleborn launches on February 9, 2016 as part of an already jam-packed month.
