The next big game from Gearbox is Battleborn, a first-person multiplayer game that appears to be their take on the MOBA genre. It will be out for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
Here’s the first trailer:
Gearbox announced the game through this month’s issue of Game Informer, and they’re promising more information in the GI cover story. Here’s the press release from publisher 2K:
2K and Gearbox Software — the genre-fusing masters behind the award-winning and best-selling Borderlands franchise — today announced that their next big original IP, Battleborn is in development for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Affectionately called a hero-shooter by the dev team, Battleborn combines frenetic first-person shooting with co-operative combat, and an expansive collection of diverse heroes to create an experience unlike anything you’ve played before. Set in a distant future, the only hope for the last star in a dying universe is a new breed of warriors who must put aside their differences to drive back an unstoppable menace. Players choose from a myriad of powerful heroes and fight together alongside their friends in a narrative-driven co-operative campaign, or battle against them in fast-paced competitive multiplayer matches.
