In a sea of CG cinematic and openers Gearbox Software did something fresh for Battleborn. To get players pumped for the game it features an animated short.  To make this possible Gearbox teamed up with animation studio Secret Sauce and hip hop group Deltron 3030. With a Japanese-inspired anime look the animation team was cut loose. They avoided correcting every single drawing to look perfect and belt out the equivalent of a guitar solo. But how was this highly stylized intro achieved? Check out the making of the gallery and these reels containing the Battleborn storyboards.
