Battleborn combines the FPS experience Gearbox has refined in their Borderlands games with elements from MOBAs, MMOs, and melee combat.
I'm kind of glad that the market is becoming over saturated with online multiplayer games, as it could spark a big return to games which focus on a great campaign, stuff like KotOR. The more games that come out and try the same DLC shiz as Evolve, Payday 2 etc and then fail horribly the better. Most people either want a complete online experience at launch or simply a great single player game they can play through and then move onto another great game instead of worrying how complete a game is, should they buy it now or wait and get the goty edition instead of being milked for 4 or 5 DLC packs.
I agree that Evolve is an utter disgrace to gaming, and i am certainly not a fan of Titanfall's mp-only hype machine, but Battleborn is not the same thing. Battleborn is basically a slightly more online focused Borderlands...but instead of a Bazillion guns it has a Bazillion characters. Just like Borderlands it's about grabbing some buddies and blastin some baddies in a humorous fps romp that features addictive character progression and oozes stylized awesomeness. Extra Point: Montana and his minigun look seriously OP! 2 Point Conversion: it features John Cleese! My PS4 is ready...for the beta.
