Battleborn's hyper-stylized space fantasy setting is populated by five ideological factions that must ultimately band together and send their "battleborn" champions to fight the Big Bad Evil Guy before he finishes destroying a universe already poised on the brink of annihilation.

Overwatch was disbanded, until... Well, we don't really know. But some bad guys are doing some bad things, leading to the call for heroes once more as our story begins.
