2K and Gearbox announce first-person MOBA Battleborn

2K and Gearbox Software have announced Battleborn, a first-person shooter MOBA for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Battleborn is being developed by the teams behind Borderlands 2 and is said to fetaure a similar combination of highly-stylised visuals, co-operative gameplay and first-person shooting.

Players will be able to play a 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."

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 nine 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."

Battleborn is available for pre-order now and will release before the end of Take-Two’s fiscal year for 2016, which ends on March 31st 2016.
