2K and Gearbox Software introduced Battleborn‘s main villain, Lothar Rendain, through an all-new trailer 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 villains. 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 Rendain is infused with Gearbox’s trademark humour.
