Battleborn Tap available now for iOS and Android

Not going anywhere (near your PS4, Xbox One, or PC) for a while? Grab a copy of Battleborn Tap.


As long as you're loading up on Battleborn games, you might as well add Battleborn Tap for iOS and Android to the pile.

A free-to-play title spun off from the first-person shooter available today for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, Battleborn Tap gives you control of a squad of heroes, just like its console counterpart. You'll unlock more heroes and arenas as you progress, as well as loot dropped by defeated enemies.

"Grow and customize those heroes by collecting and spending gold shards to upgrade your heroes’ skills and abilities to give your squad the best fighting chance against increasingly difficult waves of enemies," according to the game's official website.

Loot is grouped into categories known as Rarities. There are five in total, and loot from higher Rarities bestows greater benefits on your party. Unlocking achievements earns rewards, several of which are exclusive to owners of Battleborn on console or PC.
