‘Borderlands’ Creators Reveal New IP ‘Battleborn’ Plus Trailer!


The minds behind My Favorite Franchise Of The Last Gen (Maybe, Maybe Not, Whatever) have revealed their next game. And like we all knew ahead of time, it ain’t Borderlands 3. The joint is called Battleborn and it’s been labeled a “hero-shooter.” While I’m sure I will enjoy this game to an extent, a) I don’t really know what the fuck hero-shooter means, b) the art design ain’t my speed, and c) I want Borderlands 3. None the less, I trust the group to deliver compelling gameplay. And ain’t that what this shit is all about? What do you all make of this?

Borderlands creator Gearbox Software will release a new “hero shooter” called Battleborn that will combine first-person shooting with co-op combat, the developer announced today.

The game is set in the distant future, where “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.” Battleborn will feature a variety of playable heroes in a narrative-drive, co-op campaign, as well as competitive multiplayer matches. Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford calls the game a “hero-shooter,” as opposed to Borderlands 2’s style of “shooter-looter.”

“As a genre-fused, hobby-grade, co-operative and competitive FPS exploding with eye-popping style and an imaginative universe, Battleborn is the most ambitious video game that Gearbox has ever created,” Pitchford said. [Polygon]
