After a lengthy silence, Gearbox’s Battleborn has finally returned to the public radar. Earlier this month, publisher 2K revealed a wealth of pre-E3 details about the game, including multiplayer modes and its impending winter 2015 launch for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Before then, Gearbox and 2K will bring the game to San Diego Comic Con, held July 9 through the 12, for some hands-on time with attendees. If you’re lucky, they may also bring you and a friend: the two are hosting a sweepstakes for the prize of a four-day trip to the convention, complete with full Battleborn access. Notably, only travel and lodging are covered; extraneous expenses like meals will fall to the winning individual.
Here’s how it works. Valid only within the United States, the contest will run from June 10 to June 22. To enter, you’ll need to like the contest’s Facebook post and add a comment discussing your favorite Battleborn hero. As previously reported, the final game will feature 25 heroes at launch. We’ve only gotten to know a handful thus far, which you can check out here. I’m torn between Thorn and Marquis, myself. Oh, and the drawing will be completely random, so don’t bother stacking your post with superlatives.
The winner and one of their friends will have total access to Comic Con’s attractions but with a dollop of Battleborn on top. Gearbox and 2K won’t be putting anyone on a leash: all the panels, cosplayers, merchants and other goodies will be at the winner’s disposal.
