Indie developer Metric Empire has revealed the latest trailer for its upcoming sci-fi FPS roguelite Battle Shapers which features intense new gameplay. The trailer was showcased at the Guerilla Collective Showcase 2023, and it was narrated by community manager Syd Lazarus as she details the playthrough through beautiful, never-before-seen footage and further expands on the game’s progression. Check out the latest trailer below before we jump into additional details:
Battle Shapers is a fast-paced roguelite first-person shooter that pits you against an army of corrupt robots and their powerful overlords that have taken over your city. You step into the game as Ada, a spirited android reactivated for a final mission, and you must rise to reclaim the future of her city, New Elysium. You will have a vast arsenal of futuristic weapons, abilities, and game-changing powers stolen from the Overlord themselves and you will shoot and smash your way through their trap-ridden towers.
Key features of Battle Shapers include:
- Fight Laser With Laser
- Gun down hordes of cunning enemy machines with relentless risk-taking, and bot-busting close-range warfare in which every kill fuels your combat capabilities.
- Learn to adapt to the Overlords’ dangerous attacks and retaliations that are thrown at you every step of the way.
- Combat Is Only Half The Battle
- Use Shaper Hacks to manipulate rewards, counter the Overlord challenges and deploy your own traps, power-ups and effects in their towers.
- Explore vibrant towers that promise hidden Upgrades and Weapons to strengthen your build from run-to-run.
- As your Powers grow and change, be careful—with every defeated Overlord, your path becomes more difficult.
- Build Your ‘Core’ Strength
- Unlock new Weapons, Abilities and Talents to permanently increase your survivability and combat potential with every run.
- Obtain the Cores of fallen Overlords to transform your combat abilities and appearance, offering new combat playstyles.
- Stack up on Core Enhancers to augment your equipped core capacities and unleash their full potential.
- Fearless Shredding
- Defy the Overlords to the sound of blazing, adrenaline-pumping rock music that will have you dive head-on and fist-first into the action.
Battle Shapers is slated for an Early Access release on PC via Steam in the Summer of 2023. A Steam page for the game is now live where you can add the game to your wishlist if you are interested in playing it when it comes out.
