2K Games and Gearbox Software have announced Battleborn’s main bad guy, Lothar Rendain. As Gearbox has proven in the past with Handsome Jack, they have a way of creating bad guy that you will end up loving. Lothar Rendain is no different as he believes his tyrant ways are being done for a good reason.
Today, the creators of Borderlands – 2K and Gearbox Software – released a statement from the office of the Lord Commander, as well as an all-new trailer that sheds light on Battleborn’s big baddie’s personality and gives players a taste of what they’ll be up against when they play the game’s Story Mode on February 9, 2016. An epic science-fantasy story is only as good as its villain, and Gearbox has a strong pedigree of creating memorable, misunderstood villains that players love to hate. Rendain is one such villain, and while this thoughtful tyrant is dedicated to his cause, he thinks that what he’s doing is for a good reason, and that reason isn’t entirely selfish. And of course, staying true to the studio’s way of telling stories, even Battleborn’s bad guy is infused with Gearbox’s trademark humour!
Battleborn releases on PS4, Xbox One and PC on 9th February 2016
