Gearbox Software, developer of the Borderlands games, recently revealed a new MOBA-like online shooter, Battleborn. Gearbox denies Battleborn is a MOBA title, referring it as a “hero-shooter” instead. It is also the studio’s “most ambitious videogame“.
According to Gearbox, heroes will “go head-to-head across various sorts of landscapes while “robotic NPC minions” battle in the background”. Sounds pretty MOBA to me, though Gearbox further stated Battleborn is inspired by “RPGs, RTSes and fighting games”.
