2K Games and Gearbox Software have announced a brand new shooter IP, titled Battleborn.
Battleborn will be released for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC during Take-Two Interactive Software Inc.’s fiscal year 2016 ending March 31, 2016.
Battleborn also made the cover for Game Informer‘s August magazine, so be sure to have a check out on that. It comes combining both 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. Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software stated:
If Borderlands 2 is a shooter-looter, Battleborn is a hero-shooter, 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.
Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K added:
Battleborn represents the combined might of the development and publishing teams behind the success of Borderlands 2, which to date has sold-in more than 9-million units worldwide and has become 2K’s highest-selling game of all time, The size, scope, and ambition of Battleborn are unlike any other title in 2K’s history, and the result is a defining next-gen co-operative experience.
