Concord Gameplay

In an exciting announcement during the State of Play, Firewalk Studios has revealed the first in-depth gameplay look at their upcoming game, Concord. Scheduled for a global release on August 23, 2024, on both PS5 and PC, Concord promises to deliver a thrilling 5v5 character-driven, first-person multiplayer shooter set in the expansive Concord galaxy.

Concord is a love letter to aspirational sci-fi adventures, drawing inspiration from beloved art, anime, films, and TV series. Firewalk Studios combines this rich, imaginative backdrop with its passion for multiplayer gameplay, aiming to create intense, memorable moments for players. The game’s universe is filled with unique characters and diverse worlds, inviting players to dive into a galaxy of endless adventures.

Check out the gameplay reveal trailer below:

Players take on the role of the Freegunners, a crew of guns-for-hire aboard the Northstar. These professional mercenaries traverse the galaxy, taking on high-stakes jobs in Wild space and competing against rival Freegunner crews. Each match involves forming teams with other players to battle for rewards across a variety of maps and modes.

Concord’s gameplay focuses on tight, well-balanced FPS mechanics that feel intuitive from the moment you pick up the controller. While familiar to shooter fans, the game stands out through the unique abilities of each Freegunner. These abilities ensure that success in Concord isn’t solely reliant on aim and reflexes but also strategy and teamwork.

From powerful mystics and towering robots to skilled gunslingers and snipers, each Freegunner brings distinct abilities to the battlefield. Some abilities are designed for immediate impact, such as casting walls of fire, throwing exploding knives, or lobbing trash bombs. Others offer strategic advantages, like deployable walls, explosive traps, and speed-boosting spores that influence the match’s dynamics across rounds and respawns.

In addition to engaging gameplay, Concord offers a rich narrative experience. Players will get to know the crew of the Northstar through cinematic vignettes that premiere in-game, starting weekly from launch. These vignettes will develop the characters’ stories, and relationships, and expand on the broader lore of the Concord galaxy.

At launch, Concord will feature a roster of 16 distinct Freegunners, each with unique abilities and play styles. Firewalk Studios plans to keep the game fresh with regular, free post-launch updates introducing new playable characters, maps, modes, and more cinematic vignettes, ensuring that the Concord galaxy continues to grow and evolve.

Starting next week, Firewalk Studios will share more details about Concord’s editions for PS5 and PC, along with the launch of pre-orders. Players who pre-order the game will gain early access to the beta later this summer, providing a chance to experience Concord ahead of its official release.
