Prequel Comic Sets The Stage

A three-part motion comic detailing events before the start of Battleborn has been released by 2K and Gearbox Software.

The three-part series takes place before the events of the soon-to-be-released game and leads up to the start of Battleborn’s episodic campaign, telling the story of the destruction of the second to last star in the universe, Penarch, and showing Trevor Ghalt’s rise as leader of The Battleborn, an unlikely alliance between the universe’s greatest heroes that becomes the last line of defense for a universe on the brink of extinction.

All three prequel motion comic episodes – Running the Numbers, The Rescue, and No More Heroes – are available to watch below.

Battleborn will be released on May 3 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Read our impressions of the Battleborn beta.
