If there are a couple things the team at Gearbox excel at it is providing solid shooter experiences with a unique take on imagery. This looks to be the case with the studios latest announcement and trailer for Battleborn.
Battleborn is developed by the teams behind the critically acclaimed hybrid role-playing-shooter Borderlands 2, and is an ambitious fusion of genres. The game combines highly-stylized visuals and frenetic first-person shooting, with Gearbox’s industry-leading co-operative combat, and an expansive collection of diverse heroes. Battleborn is set in the distant future of an imaginative science-fantasy universe where players experience both a narrative-driven co-operative campaign, as well as competitive multiplayer matches.
“If Borderlands 2 is a shooter-looter, Battleborn is a hero-shooter,” said Randy Pitchford,president of Gearbox Software. “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.”
Battleborn is available for pre-order and will release during Take-Two Interactive Software Inc.’s fiscal year 2016 ending March 31, 2016, for Xbox One, PlayStation®4 system and PC. Battleborn is not yet rated in Australia and New Zealand.
