2K and Gearbox software showed off Battleborn’s three competitive multiplayer modes- Capture, Meltdown and Incursion- in a new gameplay trailer at PlayStation’s Paris Games Week on October 27.

Here is the trailer in question:

These three distinct multiplayer modes will be as follows:

  • Capture: In which you and your team capture and hold objectives on the map in order to win. Does what it says on the label.
  • Meltdown: You gain points for each minion of yours who you escort to the incinerator at the centre of the map. So, the ‘meltdown’ part is painfully literal.
  • Incursion: In which you defend your base from a horde of AI minions as you attempt to help your own minions seize your opponent’s fortress.

Each map involves 10 players online in 5v5 matches. Tutorial videos for the three modes can be found on the game’s official blog.

Battleborn should be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on February 9, 2016. It’s a self-described ‘hero-shooter’ with a levelling progression system that can be experienced through story missions or multiplayer modes. Whether or not it’s a MOBA, is a point of debate.
