Yesterday I complained about not being able to replay the animated intro and prologue mission in Battleborn. Now I can, thanks to a game update so stealthy I didn’t even have to reboot.
2K senior communications manager Scott Pytlik dropped us a line to let us know the opening bits of Battleborn, previously inaccessible after completion, were now available in the Private Story section of the game’s menu.
“Just wanted to let you know that the folks at Gearbox heard your feedback about not being able to re-watch or replay the prologue and added that functionality to the game this morning. It’s an example of how quickly we’re able to react to fan and media feedback about the game through SHiFT and micropatches.”
I am ridiculously impressed by this. I’d left my PlayStation 4 copy of Battleborn running all night, and I didn’t have to restart the game or download an update. I logged in and the option was there. This bodes well for response times to any bugs, glitches or exploits that crop up as the game goes on.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to watch some cartoons.
