Battleborn has more playable characters than all the Borderlands games combined

The multiplayer shooter coming soon from Gearbox Software will offer a lot of variety -- and we mean a lot.

Like variety? Then it sounds like Battleborn, the new game from Borderlands developer Gearbox Software, will have you covered. On Monday, publisher 2K Games released a new infographic that speaks to the numerous different hero characters you can play as and how many variations there are overall--in short, there are a lot.

Battleborn has 25 playable characters, which is more than Borderlands, Borderlands 2, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel combined -- even after more were made available as downloadable content for those games. All heroes have 10 levels and two skills per level, which adds up to a total of 1,024 ways to play every character. 2K Games says there are 7,776 ways to reach full rank with every Battleborn hero.

The biggest number of all, however, is 49,576,665,600. That's the total number of Battleborn's different hero and team configurations. Or, if you prefer, 7,776 ways to play multiplied by 6,375,600 team combinations. For more Battleborn numbers, check out the video above and the full infographic here.

The Battleborn release date is set for February 9 across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The game's story mode can be played alone, but it also supports split-screen and online co-op. It also has a competitive mode where teams of five can go head-to-head. When you earn experience and items, you'll carry them with you into every battle whether you're in multiplayer or single player mode.

An open beta for Battleborn will be held before the launch, though 2K Games hasn't announced a start date yet.

Meanwhile, Gearbox is working on Borderlands 3 and looking to get started on the upcoming Brothers in Arms and Duke Nukem games.
