Battleborn is a multiplayer, MOBA-style first-person-shooter developed by Gearbox, creators of the highly acclaimed Borderlands series. Players choose from a roster of heroes and join a team to compete against other players in a variety of game matches. Similar to MOBA-style games (such as League of Legends and Dota 2), heroes level up over the course of the match and gain new abilities as the match progresses.

This guide takes a close look at Battleborn's graphical settings and the impact they have on the game. We'll also give you a good idea of the kind of PC hardware you'll need to run Battleborn to your own personal satisfaction.

Similar to Overwatch, Battleborn is relatively easy on PC hardware by modern game standards. Built on the Unreal Engine 3, Battleborn uses a cartoonish graphical style reminiscent of Borderlands. Reviewers of the game’s beta sessions have reported that Battleborn’s visuals appear even less detailed than Borderland 2’s in some cases, likely in an attempt to reach PC gamers with weaker systems. Still, if you’re a fan of the art style, Battleborn is not a bad looking game.
