A next-gen shooter from the creators of Borderlands, a tremendous band of badass heroes fight to protect the universe's very last star from a mysterious evil. To defend it, you'll need to utilize every type of character and weapon you've ever imagined -- from samurai vampires to cyborg hawkmen to mini-gun wielding man-mountains.

Build and grow your personal team of heroes whilst you slash and parry, run and gun, cast and dash, or simply obliterate foes. Choose your hero and fight alone or co-operatively alongside friends in story missions, or battle against them in fast-paced competitive multiplayer matches.

Internet connection required to play

A terrible part of me wishes all games decreased in price this quickly and drastically.

Crazy how quickly this has dropped. Feel for anyone who bought day one.

I can only assume the price is dropping like a lead balloon because it isn't a very good game...which is a shame

Might pick it up anyway to see what the lack of fuss is all about

Bought it, played through a couple hours, certainly not as good as borderlands but still a good well made game. Think that with Borderlands they had incredible gun variety with good characters I think this is best described as those two switching. Loads of great characters, eh guns, and decent gameplay.

It's not bad, it's just getting it's behind kicked by Overwatch in terms of sales, critical reception and player base. No-one wants to buy or play it

I bought it the other day from game centre i think it was fot £14.99 trades for £22 i have bought 5 copies since the prices started dropping

I actually played it, would of kept it if i was not in middle of dying light and got far cry 4 lined up

It's dropping in price because the amount of sales, rather than not being a good game.

Gearbox released it and people compared it to Overwatch. So basically it was them v Blizzard. Plus Gearboxes reputation after Evolve and Aliens: CM, plus Uncharted 4 and Doom all coming out too, it was basically shuttered.

Plus it gets a bad rep as they aren't looking after the PC Version at all. So they're sitting waiting in ques for ages and ages.

I'd recommend it on PS4, it has a good community and it is a ton of fun to play

^^ i am waiting for a mega Overwatch PC deal (which hasn't happened yet)!

I think Overwatch has killed this

this is an awesome game .....ive even bought a new skin for my fave character , brilliant sense of humour in this game and great if you play with friends on the ps4

Also factor in that it just isnt very good, small player base etc, it will probably be f2p soon which is another reason the price is plummeting. If it isnt free to play it will be on ps plus sooner rather than later, they have microtransactions in this which arent actually that bad, which could bring revenue if the game was free.

"A next-gen shooter"

Shame I only have a current gen PS4 then...

**** game drops in price shocker. News at 10.

Gearbox don't deserve people's money after how poor Aliens was (I didn't play it, but I know all about what happened) then refusing blame and instead pointing to SEGA. Randy Pitchford sounds like a massive a-hole so don't feel bad for a game that was released at the wrong time with no marketing and the balls to go up against Overwatch. They had the choice to delay and they didn't.

Thought the beta was alot of fun, its got to be worth a punt at this price.

At this point I feel it'd be better off going free to play or being in a PS+/Xbox Gold update.

If you like playing in empty lobbies go right ahead. The multiplayer is dead as this game bombed hard in sales. You would be lucky if they kept the servers on for a few more months.

​will give it a miss then, if the servers are like a ghost town it will be a waste of money.
