This game was released on May 03, 2016 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Battleborn is a team-based first-person hero shooter developed by Gearbox Software. The game features many elements from the MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) genre, such as a diverse set of characters with different abilities and roles, an in-match leveling system, and competitive, objective-based play modes. There is a total of 25 playable heroes and three distinct multiplayer modes which pit two teams of five against each other.

While the main appeal of Battleborn is in its multiplayer, a campaign for solo or four-player co-op play is also included.

Pre-order bonuses

Firstborn Pack Gold Skins

Pre-order the game anywhere to get the Firstborn Pack which includes an exclusive in-game title and golden character skins for Thorn, Reyna, Montana, Marquis, and Rath.

GameStop has a more tangible bonus: pre-order Battleborn with them to get a fully-painted, 3″ tall figurine of either Thorn, Rath, Orendi, Montana, or Miko. The figures are selected randomly so you won’t know which one you got until you unpack it. This offer is available while supplies last.

Finally, BestBuy is offering $10 in reward certificates with this title.
