Pixel Dynamo got a chance to talk to Melissa Miller, director of product development at Battleborn’s publisher 2K Games, and discusses why the upcoming shooter defies simple categorisation.
"1st-person MOBA" is pretty accurate from what I've seen. I'd say that this game has actually been fairly underexposed for what it represents - the next big AAA game from Gearbox. I just think its a little too oddball, with a few too many games coming out with a similar name (Battlefront, Battlefield, Battlecry, Battlezone, etc.) and a little past the prime of DOTA/LOL clones. The combat is going to be a little awkward for 1st person shooter fans since the game is based around the damage-spongey mechanics of a DOTA game, and DOTA/LOL players are going to feel really out of place because of the camera and control scheme. I hope it does well, but I have a feeling it might just be a little too weird and a not quite revolutionary enough to be crazy successful past its initial hype purchase phase.
Be interested to try it out but personally, I'm waiting on Borderlands 3.
