Gearbox has given us some information as well as a solid date for the Battleborn
open beta. The beta will include 25 playable characters, seven of which are unlocked right away, and the rest who can be unlocked through progression. You will be able to take these characters through two story missions as well as play in two competitive multiplayer modes, Incursion and Meltdown. The beta itself will begin on April 13th for the Xbox One and go until April 18th, but you will be able to start pre-loading it on April 6th so it will be all ready to go when the time comes.
Alongside the beta announcement, Gearbox threw together a cinematic trailer as well as some screenshots to show off the story mode in the game that will allow you to play by yourself, or in co-op with up to five people:
