Our 26th Battleborn, Alani is officially here and playable for everyone! We’re seeing TONS of great reaction to her and her amazing water-based abilities. Maybe you’ve played Alani and you’re excited to dig in and find the best build to use with her. Well, you’re in luck! We managed to track down Battleborn Associate Producer, Anthony Nicholson for a few Alani tips and tricks and we’ll be bringing those to you tomorrow on Battleborn.com! It turns out that Anthony had a big hand in creating Alani (along with a team of super talented developers), so he knows what he’s talking about. You’ll be able to read what Anthony has to say about Alani tomorrow, by reading the Alani Deep Dive post on the Battleborn blog!

Fandom Fan Contributor Eric Fuchs attended this year's PAX East in Boston, covering the convention and posting a ton of great articles. While there, he was able to interview Battleborn creative director Randy Varnell. We've reprinted the interview below.
Eric Fuchs: Can you describe Battleborn for us? What are you trying to accomplish with this game?
Randy Varnell: Let me explain Battleborn by going back to Borderlands. When we made Borderlands, we wanted to really mix up the first person shooter genre. Borderlands was a shooter and an RPG mixed together, something strange popped out, and people liked it.
When we came to Battleborn we wanted to take the same kind of thought process but add a different mix to the stew. We really wanted to come…Read more >
Yesterday 2K Games and Gearbox Software officially announced the dates for Open Beta. Along with this long awaited news was the reveal of the way the Story Mode will work. It will take on a TV-style approach to it's format where players and their friends will become the stars of the 'show'. The developers suggest thinking of the May 3rd launch as the "premere" and continues with one large over-arching story spanning eight episodes - each episode telling a new story in the fight to save the last star, Solus.
Check out the Open Beta dates below and the included Story Mode Cinematic. It's pretty awesome! For more information, we have included a link to the official blog at the bottom. See you all in Battleborn!
