Less than a month after the game’s release, Battleborn has already received a discounted rate. If gamers were possibly waiting on buying the game, now might be a good time to figure out whether they want to pick it up or not. Per Kotaku, the game is available brand new for a reduced price of $39.99 at Amazon.com and GameStop.
The game is available for the discounted rate, brand-new, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Players can receive their GameStop versions with an exclusive figure for the $39.99 price.
It’s hard to say what brought this price drop on for the new game so quickly. But it’s possible that it could be due to the launch of Blizzard Entertainment and Activision’s Overwatch, which is set to drop tomorrow. There are some similarities between the two games. Though Battleborn does have an actual campaign component, where Overwatch is strictly an online multiplayer game. Still, if this is an aspect of competition between Gearbox Software and Blizzard Entertainment, it’s only good for fans. Because now Battleborn is available for a nice discounted price as a result of competition. Competition in a way breeds excellence, even in the gaming community.
Battleborn is available now for Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Overwatch arrives tomorrow for the same platforms.
