It’s certain that MOBAs, or multiplayer online battle arenas, are the most popular type of games on the market. Don’t take our word for it: take a look at the popularity of games such as Dota 2 or League of Legends. If you’re not too fond of classical MOBA games, though, and you’re looking for something more action-oriented, you might just be interested in Battleborn’s Incursion Mode.
Battleborn’s Incursion mode brings us first-person shooter MOBA experience
Battleborn is a game by Borderlands developer Gearbox Software. Although Battleborn shares a similar visual style with Borderlands series, the two games are nothing alike. Battleborn is designed to be a multiplayer first-person shooter with some MOBA elements, and we have to say it all comes together perfectly.
The game features 25 different characters and each comes with its own unique skill tree. Like in any other MOBA game, there’s a leveling system for your character and as the match progresses, you gain more. This allows you to choose different skills for your hero. The rules of Battleborn’s Incursion Mode are simple: destroy enemy sentries with the help of your loyal minions in order to make your way to the enemy’s base. If you’ve played any MOBA game before, you should feel right at home here.
Even though Battleborn is a first-person shooter, the game is heavily influenced by the MOBA genre. Due to strong its MOBA influence, there are respawn timers that get longer as the match progresses, with every death punished by longer respawn times. This system makes planning and decision-making crucial on your path to victory, with matches often being determined by knowledge of your character’s skills and weapons rather than reflexes.
Battleborn adopts the steep learning curve of most MOBAs, so you’ll have to learn all character skills and weapons before you begin to excel at the game. This is what make Battleborn fun at the end of the day: its complexity and strong need for cooperation with teammates. While Battleborn takes a different approach compared to other MOBA games, we’re positive it will provide players with hours of intense PVP action.
