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.
