Battleborn is set to launch next February. Here’s a brand new trailer


Gearbox’s toonish, stylish, robotish multiplayer shooter Battleborn made an appearance at Gamescom 2015, with a new trailer detailing dozens of characters, abilities, guns, chain-arm things, big swords, glowing stuff and acrobatics.

Battleborn’s barmy brand of multiplayer shooting sees a cast of different races descend upon the last star in the universe in order to have a big fight around it. RPG-style progession sees you upgrade and customise your chosen combatant over the course of a single match, and the gentle, wry humour of Borderlands, Gearbox’s other baby, seems apparent throughout,

The game’s got a freshly unveiled release date of February 9th, 2016.
