The story of what lead to the events of Battleborn, told through the stylish medium of motion comics.
Battleborn's three-part motion comic sets up the story
Battleborn's story sees 25 heroes from five different factions come together to prevent the destruction of the last star in the universe.
If you're interested to know what happened before that, in particular, the destruction of the second to last star, then these three new videos will do just that.
The videos all help set up the situation the heroes find themselves in by the start of the game, and it's all well-produced in motion comics style.
Here they're with synopsis straight from Gearbox:
Chapter 1: Running the Numbers
Synopsis: A few years and several hundred star veilings are enough to drive even the most loyal espionage agents to betrayal.
Chapter 2: The Rescue
Synopsis: The Varelsi invasion is becoming overwhelming but the United Peacekeeping Republics (UPR) will not leave their own man, clone, or avian behind.
Chapter 3: No More Heroics
Synopsis: When the end of the star system is immanent, a UPR commander must choose between obeying orders, or saving untrustworthy potential allies.
Battleborn is out May 3 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
