GameInFormer August Cover Revealed – Battleborn

Gearbox Software became a household name for gamers last generation with the hit Borderlands series. Borderlands was an experience gamers didn't even know they wanted, wrapping a fusion of first-person shooting and loot-grabbing RPG elements in a living comic book art style. Gearbox wants to change your perception of genres once again with Battleborn, a new IP being published by 2K Games for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. (Battleborn, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

Since when does this site get news about GI covers?

I see one every month. Idk how you can pretend to be bothered by this. Now we know that we will be getting info on this game shortly, as has been the case with every cover reveal. Quit looking for things to be upset about. Get real.

I have lost alot of respect for Gearbox. I really enjoyed Borderlands 1 and 2, but since then Gearbox has been crappy. Lets look at what I mean

Most of Borderlands 2 DLC was crap and they screwed over season pass purchasers by not giving them all the DLC.

Duke Nukem Forever was garbage.

Aliens Colonial Marines was garbage.

So, its a true case of what have you done for me lately and in Gearboxs case very little.

Borderlands sequel announced for last gen consoles with the excuse that there aren't enough next gen consoles, lol what a freaking joke, why release any games on new consoles then. What a crapola excuse Mr. Randy Pritchard or whatever your name is.

Bethesda also announced their 5 vs 5 game which was similarly called Battlecry.

I like the art style from the video and the characters looked pretty cool. Some are more stereotypical looking (elven archer, huge Gatling gun carrier, etc) but the clockwork gentleman had me intrigued and there were a few other fleeting glimpses of several other guys. Plus there were melee characters.

I don't think this will be near as mainstream as Borderlands but for fans of Mobas it has potential and I want to see more about MOBA mode and 5 player coop both. I think, unless it is completely stellar, that it may find a loyal but relatively small fanbase sort of how Shadowrun did on the 360/PC (likely bigger than Shadowrun but MOBA characters fit Shadowrun skill sets and world better than any other FPS I can think of).

Games like Titanfall, Evolve and even competitive L4D sort of opened the doors to new ways to play FPSers for the masses and Battleborne could follow suit. It could find that same kind of niche outside of "traditional" shooters we have slowly been moving away from.

I wouldn't go so far to say I am anticipating it yet but the potential is there and I will be keeping my eye out for new information. It was a cool little tease and I want to know more already.
