Also featured in the blog post is a overview of Battleborn's game modes and gameplay details. Among other things, it's confirmed that Battleborn will have a "Hardcore mode" for Story episodes that give players "unforgiving challenges," 2K explained, though there is no word yet on what those are.

Whatever the case, players will be rewarded for their efforts, as successful players will earn "extra loot" and "all new unlockable content."

Battleborn will also have a mode that is aimed at color-blind players. It is not a true color-blind mode per se, but it does allow players to choose their team color and the opposing team's color. "This colorization is applied to enemy color, health bars, competitive objectives, etc., and is available on all platforms," 2K said.

The blog post also covers Battleborn's co-op support. There is local split-screen for PS4 and Xbox One that supports two screens per system, while it's also confirmed that split-screen players can join any team. The maximum number of players per side is five.
