Gearbox Announces "Hero Shooter" Battleborn

Gearbox Software announces Battleborn, calling their next game a "hero shooter," due to a focus on characters in this first-person shooter coming next year to Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. They offer a Battleborn reveal trailer with a sentimentally violent cinematic, and say there are further details in the new issue of GameInformer magazine (online now, in print next month) and to expect a month of revelations on the Game Informer Battleborn hub. Here's word:
We’re calling Battleborn a “hero shooter” in that it’s a first-person shooter focused on characters above all else. No first-person shooter has ever had this much character variety, and we’re excited for you to see the first batch of heroes today.

Battleborn involves our heroes – called the battleborn, conveniently enough – teaming up to fight the Varelsi, an unstoppable menace trying to destroy the last star in a dying universe. You can play with up to four friends in our five-player cooperative campaign, or try out one of several different competitive multiplayer match types in games of up to 10 players.

Did you seriously expect anything fresh and inspiring from the "creators of Borderlands"

I don't think anyone can argue well against those words, particularly "inspired," for Borderlands 2. Sorry, Handsome Jack was inspired. The entire game was fairly fresh.

It's the anomaly in their catalog, but they've also done little in house other than Brothers at Arms, which I've never played because it looked like generic WWII stuff.

another day another new MOBA game announcement... boring!

and what's with the indie band hipster music playing in the trailer? the desire to be hip and trendy is obviously noticed with this one, and may come off as a bit forced.

This is like a parody of bad video game trailers. Someone really likes this song but couldn't figure out how to make it fit with a trailer so they just told the animators "just like, put a bunch of characters in and make them shoot at stuff." Not to mention it doesn't tell us anything about the game, but then again, asking for a trailer to tell us anything is probably a lost hope by now.

Almost everything about this trailer looked a bit cheap and forced, especially from using an M83 song to try and get some sort of emotion that doesn't suit the badly animated and designed visuals. Hell, even the fonts used aren't that fitting :/

Expected a LOT more design and visual flair from Gearbox after their fantastic Borderlands trailers.

I KNEW I knew that song from somewhere. Cloud Atlas trailer!

And I agree, this trailer was kind of boring. I guess it communicated something though: "Look! We got lots of different cool characters you can play with! It's WoW meets Team Fortress!"

Also, "Battleborn?" L.A.M.E.

I'll reserve judgement for gameplay footage, but I'm not hopeful. This looks too derivative. And I'm pretty down on console ports these days.
