2K Games announces Battleborn for NZ…

2K Games has announced that Gearbox Software, the studio responsible for the critically-acclaimed Borderlands games, is working on a new next-gen shooter called Battleborn.

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,” says 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.”

“If Borderlands 2 is a shooter-looter, Battleborn is a hero-shooter,” adds 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.”

According to 2K, the game combines highly-stylised 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 is now available for pre-order and will release in New Zealand sometime before March 31, 2016 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
