Gearbox Software is spreading its wings beyond Borderlands, Brothers in Arms and the like with a brand-new IP called Battleborn, coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC, with Borderlands partner 2K Games on publishing duties once more. It's another first-person title, but this one's a MOBA-style intergalactic arena battler.

Featuring an immortal samurai, minigun-wielding hulk, elven huntress, space marine, and other heroes, Battleborn sees you fighting for the last star in the cosmos. So far, one competitive multiplayer mode has been announced for Battleborn: a 5v5 game-type called Incursion. Combining fast-paced first-person combat with the strategy of titles like Dota 2 and League of Legends, you'll begin each match on a level playing field before journeying along a skill tree to level 20, with customisable abilities to unlock.

These abilities will carry over into Battleborn's five-player co-op campaign, which Gearbox is remaining tight-lipped about. The idea is to pit a whole range of action game archetypes against one another on the battlefield, and there'll be more on the game in due course. Expect rival factions, Gearbox's trademark humour and more. There's more info in Game Informer's latest issue hitting news stands soon.

That was a pretty good trailer. Gearbox sure does know how to pick the music.
