The creators of  Borderlands  are making a MOBA-inspired FPS
The creators of Borderlands are making a MOBA-inspired FPS

Gearbox Software has taken the wraps off its next major project: Battleborn, a first-person shooter that will be published by 2K Games on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The game is expected to launch before the close of parent company Take-Two Interactive's 2016 fiscal year, which ends on March 31, 2016, and seems to draw blatant inspiration from popular MOBAs like Dota 2 and League of Legends.

According to reports from enthusiast outlet Game Informer, Battleborn includes a 5-person cooperative campaign mode as well as a 5-on-5 team-based competitive multiplayer mode in which players pick a hero and battle their rivals alongside a steady stream of AI-controlled grunt characters, leveling up and gaining new abilities throughout the match.

While Gearbox is involved in a number of projects, this is the first game it's announced that's exclusive to PC and contemporary console hardware -- company leader Randy Pitchford recently explained that the upcoming Borderlands game is targeted at last-gen consoles because that's where the Borderlands audience is. Battleborn seems to be an attempt to build a new franchise for a new generation of console hardware.
