Gearbox unveils their new shooter IP, Battleborn

Gearbox Software has unveiled their next project, and it’s an entirely new franchise called Battleborn. The game is being a dubbed a “hero-shooter” with a co-operative campaign and competitive multiplayer mode. Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford described the game on Twitter as an “FPS; hobby-grade coop campaign; genre-blended, multi-mode competitive e-sports; meta-growth, choice + epic Battleborn Heroes!” So basically every kind of game all blended together, or something.

According to the game’s (sparse) official website: “in Battleborn’s 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.” There’ll be a number of hero classes to choose from; the game mashes together magic, guns, bows, and swords.

Not much else is known at the moment other than it’s heading to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2015. You can check out the reveal trailer after the jump. Game Informer magazine has the exclusive cover feature for this month so expect details to come out of that in the next couple of days.

        Blasphemy! If it’s on PC I’ll play with you xD

          It’s on PC, but I’ve got this MAJOR problem called Diablo 3. I cannot stop playing that game unless I “have to” stop it to review something. Really. It’s bad. O_O

        Me too :D I start it up, look at my quests, get overwhelmed and quit. Just need to find the time.

          It’s much more fun with friends!

            I agree. I have a friend pestering me to play all the time but I think my problem is that when i do actually want to play, i want to see everything – hear all the dialog. My eager friend plays to fast and skips all dialog (by fast traveling ‘n such). So it just becomes irritating and pointless to me.

            I’m not sure what to do. I’m the kind of person that wants to finish it 100%
