Speaking on stage at the PlayStation Experience keynote earlier today, Gearbox Software studio head Randy Pitchford announced upcoming MOBA/shooter Battleborn will support split-screen multiplayer, allowing players to battle their way through the game's cooperative campaign while sharing a couch.
Pitchford also confirmed Battleborn's open beta--which begins in early 2016--will be available first on PlayStation 4. In addition, PS4 owners will receive an exclusive additional character--a mech suit-clad penguin named Toby--after the game launches on May 3, 2016.
