    Borderlands developer Gearbox software has announced a new hero shooter, Battleborn, that combines first-person shooter with co-op play. Gearbox president Randy Pitchford has emphasized that Battleborn is a hero shooter, whereas Borderlands 2 is a shooter looter. Randy Pitchford said:


    Battleborn will feature both a narrative-driven co-op campaign as well as competitive multiplayer matches. It's currently slated for a release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One during the 2016 fiscal year, which ends on March 31, 2016.

    Battleborn - Release Date Set in February.

    2K and Gearbox have announced at Gamescom that Battleborn, their first-person shooter from the minds of Borderlands, will release on February 9, 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Gearbox also announced four new playable characters for Battleborn at the show as part of their 25 character roster.

    • Ambra: Born into an ancient order of priestesses responsible for discovering a way to prolong life indefinitely, Ambra was betrayed by her leader and her faction, the Jennerit Empire, and now fights alongside the Battleborn. She is a specialist hero, dealing damage up close through her melee attacks and powerful abilities, while healing her allies in the process.
    • Mellka: A stealthy assassin, Mellka lost her parents at a young age before eventually earning her place among the Eldrid's black op's and intelligence bureau. Her life has been defined by a series of staggering losses, but her response to these losses was never despair - it was fury. She strikes quickly, disorienting foes with her nerve gas machine pistol and bio-glaive melee attacks.
    • Reyna: Known by her followers as "The Valkyrie," Reyna was born aboard the Rogue faction's ailing junk heap of a flagship and is a native to the last star system. Reyna has fought tirelessly for the freedom of her space pirate comrades, finding her calling as their inspirational leader. She dishes damage with her laser pistol and uses her command glove to support her teammates.
    • Benedict: August Benedict Jr. is one of several surviving races of bird-like "Aviant" refugees. He swore allegiance to the Peacekeepers where he's gained considerable notoriety for being a self-centered jerk that's capable of astounding destruction with his rocket launcher. Double jumping, rocket jumping, and flying - Benedict's good at all of them and he lets his teammates know it.
    Battleborn can be played alone or co-op with up to 5 friends for the narrative campaign, and can be played 5v5 in online matches. The co-op can be couch or online co-op.
