Gearbox is ready to make a splash at E3 this year with their new IP called “Battleborn”. Everything we have seen and heard so far indicates that this will be yet another Multiplayer-centric competitive shooter with an art style reminiscent of their Borderlands series. I want to resist calling it a FPS-MOBA since that term is being thrown around a lot lately but it really does look like, well……a FPS MOBA.
I am sure we will have a vault of info open up in two weeks when Gearbox takes the stage at E-3 but for now feast your eyes on their “E-3 Trailer”
From the creators of Borderlands comes a new first-person shooter for every kind of badass.
The universe teeters on the brink of extinction and only the most powerful Battleborn can stop it. This band of badasses will slice swords through enemies, fire massive machine guns, sling powerful spells and much more! Command 25 unique heroes. Fight alone or alongside friends. Play story missions or mow down foes in competitive multiplayer matches.
