Gearbox and 2K announce Battleborn

ScreenHunter_09 Jul. 07 18.32

What if there was only one star left in the cosmos?  What if you were in a fight to the death with many other races for control of that star?  That’s the pitch for Battleborn, the new online multiplayer battle game coming from Gearbox and 2K.  Read on for all the details.

Battleborn was announced earlier today as the cover story for next month’s Game Informer magazine, and it looks to put a Gearbox flavored spin on the MOBA genre.  MOBA, in case you weren’t aware, stands for multiplayer online battle arena, and has been dominated in recent years by League of Legends.  Battleborn will feature a wide assortment of characters, all with vastly different play styles.  The game will feature both competitive multiplayer and cooperative campaigns, all being played in a first person perspective.  Game Informer is promising a whole month of exclusive coverage (showoffs!) but for now, check out the announcement trailer below.

There’s no release date for Battleborn yet, but it’s slated for release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Keep an eye on the official website for updates.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
