GO BIG OR GO HOME
If it’s worth having, it’s worth fighting for. Since the Collapse, resources are scarce and enemies are everywhere. Big risks can yield big rewards, which you’ll need to survive in this hostile world. You’ll face warring factions, enemy players, and extreme forces of nature. The idea is simple: bring back more than you lose.
SEEK AND YOU SHALL FIND
The right tech is essential to survive. Go forth and find what you need, or loot it off other players you’ve defeated. Grab the goods, bring ‘em back, then craft and customize Exo-Rigs, gear, weapons, and mods to give you the edge on your next mission. Keep your head on a swivel; the best gear is often the toughest to acquire.
EVERYONE’S OUT TO GET YOU
You can strike out into this hostile world on your own, but friends can watch your back. Ally with old war buddies or comrades of convenience — it pays to balance your tech and Exo-Rig loadouts across a team.
Ever had a gunfight in a tornado? Get ready for some thrilling and unpredictable emergent gameplay – compliments of Mother Nature. Tornadoes, lightning strikes, and apocalyptic storms can throw you, your enemies, or your plans into disarray. One thing’s for sure: no two sessions will ever be the same.
EXTRACTION UNLEASHEDSteam Listing
Getting in is easy. Getting out with the goods? Not so much. If you’re new to the genre, you can find your feet before tackling the biggest challenges. For seasoned veterans, the unique combination of extreme forces of nature, verticality, and a wide choice of play styles will make sure the thrills keep on coming.
Den of Wolves
Co-op Heist shooter Den of Wolves was revealed for PC. The developer, 10 Chambers, is comprised of developers from PAYDAY and GTFO, so should give PAYDAY 3 some competition. The official overview and trailer can be found below.
Den of Wolves is a cooperative heist FPS where you and your friends operate as criminals-for-hire in Midway City, an unregulated innovation zone. You take advantage of the growing need for “unauthorized errands” created by rival business entities in this corporate haven.
With Den of Wolves, we are creating an action-packed techno-thriller – a session-based cooperative heist shooter where you can make your mark whether you have 20 minutes or 2 hours to play.
Plan and execute heists through industrial espionage, sabotage, theft and assassinations. Gather your crew, decide the best approach, acquire the weapons, gadgets and intel, penetrate the security systems and execute the heist.
Missions are dynamic and unpredictable as your crew are thrown from stealth to full-on action and back in mind-bending scenarios.
Den of Wolves is about taking down scores together with your crew – and hopefully gaining some new friends along the way.
Founded by an elite consortium of global corporations, Midway Island is an unregulated innovation zone created to combat a global data security threat caused by deep learning AI.
With no human rights agencies to appease, they developed a new data transmission and storage concept based on the human brain – so fundamentally different from traditional network architecture, AI couldn’t navigate it.
With security came market confidence, and now Midway City has become a sprawling nerve center for international trade – it is the new land of opportunity; and where there is opportunity, crime finds a way…
As a development studio, 10 Chambers is built for creating cooperative shooters; it’s in our DNA. We focus all our efforts on cooperative gameplay and engaging storytelling – and we take the time we need. We will do our best to keep you updated throughout development.Steam
