Battleborn has been announced as the next IP from Gearbox Software, developers of Borderlands and Brothers in Arms.
Battleborn appears to be a clever genre mash-up, combining the leveling and competitiveness of MOBAs with first-person shooter gameplay. According to Game Informer’s reveal of the project, “Battleborn is set in the distant future of an imaginative science-fantasy universe where players experience both a narrative-driven co-operative campaign, as well as competitive multiplayer matches.”
The story brings together a wide variety of heroes, including a samurai and a giant wielding a machine gun, all battling over the last star in the cosmos.
Not much else is known about Battleborn, other than it is scheduled to be released sometime in 2015 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
