Gearbox's Battleborn didn't have the jubilation that the popular developer had hoped. Being vastly overshadowed by Overwatch, the game, unfortunately, didn't stand a chance. That isn't to say it's a bad game, however, but they were hard pressed to convince people to buy two competitive class-based shooter games. But now, that may not be much of a problem with their new free trial.
Right out the gate, this free trial is more of a free-to-play model phrased as a trial. The free trial includes unlimited competitive multiplayer play and includes access to all modes and a rotating roster of free heroes. Much like League of Legends, these available heroes will rotate every week. If you like a hero enough, you can buy them with slowly accrued in-game currency, or just out-right buy them with Platinum premium currency.
There's also a new mode called Supercharge, which we currently have limited information on aside from its arrival being slated for June 22.
Battleborn may yet find its stride in this Not-Free-To-Play-But-Totally-Free-To-Play model they've gone for. Will this convince you to pick it up?
