Gearbox Software, the development team that's best known for creating the popular Borderlands sci-fi action-RPG series, have just announced their next major game. It's called Battleborn and it's due out for the Xbox One and PC, among other platforms.

Battleborn, at least on the surface, resembles the kind of MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) games that have been popularized by titles such as League of Legends and DOTA 2. However, those games are played mostly in third person perspectives while Battleborn aims to combine the strategy of MOBAs with first person shooter gameplay.

The game's first press release states:

The game combines highly-stylized visuals and frenetic first-person shooting, with Gearbox's industry-leading co-operative combat, and an expansive collection of diverse heroes. Battleborn is set in the distant future of an imaginative science-fantasy universe where players experience both a narrative-driven co-operative campaign, as well as competitive multiplayer matches.

Battleborn will be published by Take Two Interactive's 2K Games brand and will be released sometime during the publisher's fiscal 2016 year which ends on March 31, 2016. What do you think of Battleborn at this stage?
