Still going strong.

Earlier today, there was a report from Kotaku stating that Battleborn would soon be going free-to-play with paid DLC. However, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford swiftly took to Twitter to denounce these rumors, and firmly stated that the game would not be adopting the F2P model. Here are his tweets on the matter.

While a trial version of the game does make it sound like Battleborn is going F2P anyway, it’s possible that this is simply a demo version of the game that players can test out for a bit before deciding if they want to purchase the retail game. No details were given about what would be included in this trial version, and Pitchford also stated that this version of the game was still months off. We’ll keep you updated as more info comes our way.

Battleborn is now available for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Gearbox has also promised to keep supporting the game with extra content and characters. What are your thoughts on the game so far? Feel free to let us know in the comments down below.
