Battleborn introduces villain Lothar Rendain

The memorable, misunderstood Lord Commander.


2K Games and Gearbox Software have introduced Lothar Rendain, the Lord Commander and main villain of its upcoming shooter Battleborn.

Rendain is described as a “memorable, misunderstood villain” that players will love to hate.” A “thoughtful tyrant” dedicated to his cause, he thinks what he’s doing is for good reason, and that reason isn’t entirely selfish.

Battleborn is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 9.
