Action (First-Person Shooter), Casual (MOBA)


From the demented minds that brought you Borderlands comes a new team-based shooter unlike any other. Choose from 25 distinct characters - from quick and nimble to meat shields to melee maestros - and play in either single player or up to 5v5 online matches. Each campaign or online match is designed so each character can go from level 1 to 10 in one go, so you can experience the full extent of their abilities. Campaign mode can also be multiplayer, either online or split-screen, as you race to save the last star in the universe from an evil hellbent on its destruction.

Also Available On:

PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Unfortunately, Battleborn came out at pretty much the exact same time as game doing the exact same thing... perhaps you've heard of it: Overwatch.

The MJ crew isn't known for having any compulsion for online games, anyway, we got this because it's the only MOBA with a multi-player story mode and, in that aspect, it succeeds.

The Last Server

“Battleborn” is a space-filler title developed by Gearbox and published by 2K, both companies better known for their hand in the insanely popular Loot & Shoot ‘Borderlands’ franchise. It seems that everyone wants to get in on the PvP e-sports scene in recent years, and the temptation was just too much for Gearbox/2K, who put a guaranteed moneymaker (i.e., “Borderlands 3”) on the back burner to instead spent time and money working on yet another team-based PvP Arena Shooter featuring a stable of quirky-looking characters… because that’s apparently how one does a ‘Hero Shooter.’

Unfortunately for 2K and Gearbox, “Battleborn” released near simultaneously with Blizzard’s “Overwatch,” and for $20 more. Likewise, other so-called Hero Shooters and Hero Shooter MOBAs, like “Paladins,” “SMITE,”...
