Battleborn

BORDERLANDS was a deft piece of storytelling on its creator’s part. It combined all the trappings of the traditional RPG whilst maintaining its first person shooter credentials and pleasing both camps in the processes. Its success goes some way to prove that there really aren’t great hulking voids between gaming factions as we would be believed.

The company’s next project is a FPS like its predecessor, but will take on the popular multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) genre. 2K have released the following press release regarding BATTLEBORN: ‘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.

The trailer boasts the idiosyncratic design and characters expected from the team behind BORDERLANDS. Are you excited for BATTLEBORN or is it more BORDERLANDS you’re after?
