The next big game from Gearbox is Battleborn, a first-person multiplayer game that appears to be their take on the MOBA genre. It'll be out for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.


Here's the first trailer:

Gearbox announced the game through this month's issue of Game Informer, and they're promising more information in the GI cover story. Here's the press release from publisher 2K:

2K and Gearbox Software – the genre-fusing masters behind the award-winning and best-selling Borderlands franchise – today announced that their next big original IP, Battleborn is in development for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Affectionately called a hero-shooter by the dev team, Battleborn combines frenetic first-person shooting with co-operative combat, and an expansive collection of diverse heroes to create an experience unlike anything you've played before. Set in a 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. Players choose from a myriad of powerful heroes and fight together alongside their friends in a narrative-driven co-operative campaign, or battle against them in fast-paced competitive multiplayer matches.

Are you ready for a Gearbox-developed first-person MOBA?



So i havn't played a single MOBA. I kind of been wanting to give it a try so give me recommendations on where to start..

But from an outsiders perspective, I feel like this genre blew up only within the last 2 years. It's the new FPS where every developer needs a MOBA.
