Publisher Super.com introduced Deadlink, a brand new first-person shooter with cyberpunk theming and a roguelite construction. It comes from Gruby Entertainment, an indie improvement studio made up of devs that beforehand labored on Outriders and Giant Machines.
In a press launch, Super.com describes Deadlink as “a fast-paced, guns-blazing cyberpunk FPS with rogue-lite elements” the place you turn out to be “part of the Corporate Security Agency, which, contrary to the name, keeps corporations all but secure using plausibly deniable surgical attacks to prevent their most despicable schemes from coming to fruition.” The description leans onerous into the very actual resentment individuals at the moment have in direction of corporations and channels it right into a seemingly infinitely replayable FPS.
The screenshots exhibit the extraordinarily colourful artwork fashion of the sport that appears closely impressed by the moody neon that typifies the cyberpunk style lately. And whereas cyberpunk video games are a dime a dozen currently, this recreation appears to be like stable already, and at the least has a novel roguelite aspect to it. It’s the worldbuilding that’s actually going to make or break this recreation, although, so Gruby actually must nail how distinct these corporations are and the way scummy they are often.
Outriders, in the meantime, was additionally a stable recreation when it launched, although not with out its unusual concepts. That’s what makes Gruby Entertainment’s new recreation actually intriguing. A giant new replace simply launched for Outriders final month, although developer People Can Fly apparently didn’t see royalties for the sport as not too long ago as final August.
Deadlink will launch in Steam Early Access in Q1 of 2022.
