While technically not free to play in the strictest sense, Battleborn now sports a free "unlimited competitive multiplayer" experience for all versions of the game. Players can take part on all game play modes and maps with no time limits or level caps. The number of available heroes is limited to a rotation of six per week. Progress and progression is permanent as well.
For players who had purchased Battleborn before today, a number -- a HUGE number -- of in-game items will be awarded as well as the "Founder" title.
