“For Every Kind of Badass”
One thing is for sure, when it comes to press kits, 2K by far has whipped out hit after hit and the latest one for Battleborn is a keeper!
Unsheathed from the box, we see Battleborn’s key art in all it’s glossy glory.
And it opens up to reveal a whole lot of cool loot!
The fastest way to get aquianted with all the factions in the game would be through a spinning wheel. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen one of this.
Delving into the box proper, we find even more semblances of old school gaming. This is a manual that one would usually get in the game box.
Filled with nothing but awesome character art and descriptions of abilities, we could easily see ourselves pouring over this manual in school when we’re away from the game.
Pins representing each faction, pick your side!
Careful, pretty things can be sharp.
With 25 champions to choose from, it might get tricky identifying each of name from memory. Thankfully, this pack of cards will easily help you out with that.
But wait there’s more. This huge box is two-tiered so there are even more treasures to uncover!
And the reveal is…even more Battleborn champions but now in statuette form.
The only faction missing here are the folks from the LLC with an additional Eldrid figure taking its place. The coolest thing that I would like to highlight would be the bases that are included with the figs. We’re getting pretty awesome stylized bases as opposed to the more common circular ones.
Getting up close with the Eldrids, we start off with Thorn and Miko.
Miko has more than meets the eye.
Eye see you!
And the biggest fig of them all goes to Montana from the Peacekeepers, naturally.
However, my favourite one is the box has to be Orendi from the Rogue faction. The colour tone combined with the sculpt and paint makes him look like a different character from varying angles.
Battleborn is currently in stores right now, do check out the review for our thoughts of the game.
Gerald currently straddles between his love of video games and board gaming. There’s nothing that interests him more than trying out the newest and fanciest gadget in town as well. He dreams of publishing a board game sometime in the future!
