Battleborn announced by 2K Games and Gearbox Software

2K and Gearbox Software today announced Battleborn, an all-new full-featured triple-A hero-shooter experience coming to PS4, PC and Xbox One.

Battleborn is developed by the teams behind Borderlands 2, and is an ambitious fusion of genres. The game combines highly-stylized visuals and frenetic first-person shooting, with Gearbox’s 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.

“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.”

“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 9-million units worldwide and has become 2K’s highest-selling game of all time,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “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 will release during Take-Two Interactive Software fiscal year 2016 ending March 31, 2016, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 system and PC.

While I understand your point about Aliens I wont let one game put me off buying from them again seeing as I have played a fair few I enjoyed. It seems interesting but will have to see more first.
