Battleborn Beta Date Released

Battleborn, the all-new hero-based shooter from Gearbox Software, is scheduled to start closed beta testing on October 29.

Don’t record, stream or talk about the Closed Technical Test. Still want to talk about the game? Awesome – talk with us! We will have a private forum for technical test participants to provide feedback on their experiences and discuss the game privately with other test participants.”
