Battleborn: New Shooter from Gearbox

battleborn

My first thought in seeing the cinematic trailer for Battleborn was that I was seeing Ferngully, the video game.  Ferngully if you remember was a middling animated eco-adventure from 1992 that people have fond memories of.  We had elvish forest fairies, smog churning evil forest destroying machines and bright colors, similar to what we are seeing here.

From the scant information I have Battleborn will be a MOBA/Shooter hybrid. I’m assuming it’s Team Fortress 2 in the woods from the initial character designs, but time will tell.  Despite Alien Colonial Marines Gearbox still has a bunch of goodwill left over due from the  Borderlands franchise, so this is theirs to squander.
