The “first person battle arena” title is a completely new IP from the Borderlands dev.
Borderlands developer Gearbox Software has finally revealed its first Xbox One and PS4 exclusive project in the form of Battleborn. Announced in Game Informer, Battleborn has been described as a “first person battle arena” that will also be heading to the PC. Battleborn is a completely new IP and will be published by 2K Games.
According to Gearbox. Battleborn will combine several genres together and act as a highly stylized first person shooter with co-op. There will also be a large number of heroes to play us in the game.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is another game that Gearbox has a hand in but it is being primarily developed by 2K Australia and will make use of the Borderlands 2 engine. It is also releasing for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, though there is a chance it could arrive on the Xbox One and PS4 if there’s enough of a demand in the future.
What are your thoughts on Battleborn? Are you bummed that Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway is still nowhere to be seen? Let us know in the comments.
