Borderlands Developer Gearbox announces Battleborn

Borderlands developer Gearbox Software has released a debut trailer for their new game Battleborn, a mass genre FPS. It features things like, Creeps, quick leveling, unique heroes, and a 5v5 competitive multiplayer, all aspects of the popular MOBA genre in games like League of Legends or DOTA 2.

Unlike MOBA’s it also offers loot-grabbing elements seen in RPGs, and a five player cooperative campaign. Gearbox says it is the most ambitious video game they have ever created. Battleborn takes place 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.”

Gearbox plans to release Battleborn sometime inĀ 2015.

Battleborn will launch on consoles Xbox One, and Playstation 4, as well as Windows PC.
