Gearshifters, “Arcade Action Shoot ’em Up Roguelite,” Announced, Releasing This Year

Top-down arcade action.


Gearshifters

Developer Red Phantom Games and publisher Numskull Games announced Gearshifters today. The game, described as an “arcade action shoot ’em up roguelite” (try saying that three times fast) coming to PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC via Steam. Gearshifters is set to launch sometime this year.

Here’s a description, straight from the game’s Steam page:

About

Arcade shoot ’em up roguelite. Steer, blast. and battle through enemy vehicles, and annihilate bosses. Adapt your loadout of mods, defenses, and weapons for each hazardous mission.

  • Drive and Destroy – Employ precision control and expert driving skills to race rings around foes, dodge incoming projectiles, and unleash intense attacks. High-octane action at every turn, slide and spin.
  • Mega-Vehicle Boss Battles – Defeat the lawless factions that dominate dystopian future Europe, and take down their insane, heavily-armed boss machines.
  • Get Paid and Upgrade – Tackle dangerous delivery missions to ensure the safe arrival of precious cargo. Get paid, and modify your car with offensive, defensive, cosmetic and performance-based customizations.
  • Explosive Delivery – Expand your territory across the post-apocalyptic continent. Only the most skilled Gearshifter can take on the most perilous routes and reach the mysterious Citadel.

Key Features

  • High-intensity physics-based top-down vehicle combat.
  • Procedurally-generated roadways and enemy waves.
  • Fight across 27 stages through nine environmental zones, each with its own faction and complement of opponents.
  • Customise your combat vehicle with over 100 randomly-unlocked upgrades.
  • Story arc across five acts.
  • Standard, Casual and Deadly (perma-death) game modes.
  • Vibrant top-down 3D world.
  • Original soundtrack.
  • A range of accessibility options. (TBA before release.)

While we don’t have much gameplay to go on yet, Gearshifters reminds me of the top-down shoot ’em ups of old. It looks fast, features big bosses, lots of enemies, and a good amount of bullets. The roguelite nature of the game is interesting. Since upgrades appear to be randomly generated, as do levels, Gearshifters might offer something like Faster Than Light or Hades, where you end up with a substantially different build and path each time. Combining that with the top-down action of a shoot ’em up sounds like a winner, but we’ll have to see when the game launches later this year.

Humble Bundle is a pretty big website and if you’re into PC gaming then you likely know of them from what they offer. Usually, there are a few video game bundle highlights that offer players a nice collection of video games at a steep discount. The incentive is to pay over the minimum to donate towards a highlighted charity. However, there is a store marketplace as well which allows players to purchase games individually.

This Humble Bundle storefront is advertising a Covid-19 Bundle which offers quite a few games from different publishers. This will allow players to get over $650 worth of content for just $20 and with it comes the ability to donate towards these charities.

Insomniac Games Director Would Love To Bring Back Sunset Overdrive

Avatar

Published

on

Sunset Overdrive is a vibrant and colorful third-person action-adventure title. In the game, players are tossed into a near alternate reality future where the world has become a dystopia in control by mutants. Within the game, you take the role of a FizzCo employee who is tasked with cleaning up the mess in the city after the launch of a new energy drink developed by the mutants. An interesting mechanic to this game is the speed and parkour movements you’ll be using to battle against enemies Throughout the city. 

Currently, there is no word of a sequel in the works. Instead, the developers have expressed an interest in crafting Sunset Overdrive 2 in the past. Now it’s come up once again if there’s any more interest in returning to the iconic franchise that first hit the market on the Xbox One by GQ, co-director of the game Marcus Smith is not interested in ruling it out. 

According to the statement given, Marcus is a never say never kind of guy. However, since that game launched into the marketplace, the development team was acquired by Insomniac Games. Now the focus is being developers for Sony and apparently, Marcus has plenty of exciting things in the works right now.

While there are plenty of areas that Insomniac Games could likely dwell into with Sunset Overdrive, there’s no official confirmation that a sequel is in the works. Still, that doesn’t mean Sony is not going to scrap the IP since they have a trademark for the IP, it very well could just be made for safekeeping if the time ever comes for jumping back into that franchise once again. Recently, Insomniac Games has found a ton of success with their Marvel’s Spider-Man franchise and are currently developing the next thrilling installment to the Ratchet & Clank franchise with Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.

Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance Coming to Xbox Game Pass on Console, Cloud, and PC at Launch

Game Pass gets another win.


Dungeons and Dragons Dark Alliance

Another day, another massive win for Xbox Game Pass, the absolute best deal in gaming. This time, the win comes in the form of the announcement that Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance, the four-player co-op action game based in Icewind Dale, will be coming to Xbox Game Pass on console, cloud, and PC on launch day.

Dungeon and Dragons: Dark Alliance is the latest of several games to release on Game Pass on launch day, joining titles like Outriders, Knockout City, and the Sony-developed MLB: The Show 21. Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance seems like a particularly good fit for Game Pass given its co-op nature and the popularity of Dungeons and Dragons as an IP. Dark Alliance will also be available for purchase on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam for $39.99 for the standard edition or $59.99 for the Digital Deluxe Edition.

It’s a good time to be a Dungeons and Dragons fan playing video games. Baldur’s Gate 3 is in development at Larian, though it will need some time to get out of early access, and the spiritual successor to Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance, the classic Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance was recently re-released on modern platforms, with a PC port coming later this year. Black Isle Studios has also confirmed that a re-release of its sequel, Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance 2, is “on the table.”

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart Has Gone Gold

Published

The PS5 exclusive arrives on June 11th.


ratchet and clank rift apart

Insomniac Games’ Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart has gone gold a little less than a month before launch. This means that principle development on the action platformer shooter is done and it’s currently being set for certification and physical disc distribution. There will likely be a day one patch though so Insomniac’s work isn’t done yet.

The story sees Ratchet and Clank celebrating their numerous victories but this is cut short when Doctor Nefarious swoops in to steal the Dimensionator. When it malfunctions, the duo is dragged through numerous different dimensions, including a future dystopia where Nefarious has won. This is where new character Rivet comes into play as she rebels against the regime.

Along with new weapons, worlds and movement options, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart takes advantage of the PS5’s SSD for quickly and seamlessly loading new areas. The title’s streaming architecture (which was used in the Marvel’s Spider-Man series) has also allowed for worlds to have more “density, content and quality” in every corner. It’s out on June 11th so stay tuned for more details.
