2K and Gearbox Software (the makers of Borderlands) unveiled its next original IP this week, titled Battleborn.
Currently in development for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, the game is being called “a hero-shooter” by the dev team. It combines first-person shooting with co-operative combat, and an expansive collection of diverse heroes “to create an experience unlike anything you’ve played before,” says the company.
Battleborn is set in a distant future, where 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.
At press time, a release date had not been announced.
