A new IP from the crazy folk at 2K and Gearbox Software, the same people that gave us Borderlands today announce Battleborn, check out the info and teaser trailer below then let us know what you think in the comments at the bottom of the page.

Battleborn™, an all-new full-featured triple-A hero-shooter experience for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC is in development.

Battleborn is developed by the teams behind the critically acclaimed hybrid role-playing-shooter Borderlands 2, and is an ambitious fusion of genres. The game combines highly-stylized 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.

“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.”

    Seems cool but I’m thinking more couch co op. I would bet it’s online co op which isn’t bad but I could use more couch co op. That aside, I’ll pick it up when it gets around $50 new. (I didn’t like borderlands)
