You've played the Battleborn beta (or at least 2 million of you did), now read the motion comic! If you're looking for a little more context to what exactly is going on in the hero shooter, you're in luck. Gearbox and 2K Games have released three motion comics that outline what happened before players meet up with the game's heroes in the campaign.

The series outlines what happened before Penarch, the second to the last remaining star in the universe, was destroyed. It features Battleborn leader Trevor Ghalt, lots of panning and zooming, and more pulpy dialogue than you could possibly want. Check it all out below.

Chapter 1: Running the Numbers
A few years and several hundred star veilings are enough to drive even the most loyal espionage agents to betrayal. 

Chapter 2: The Rescue
The Varelsi invasion is becoming overwhelming but the United Peacekeeping Republics (UPR) will not leave their own man, clone, or avian behind. 

Chapter 3: No More Heroics
With his back against the wall, UPR Commander Ghalt faces a difficult decision with universe-ending ramifications.

 

Battleborn is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 3.
