GTA2-inspired shooter ‘GENESHIFT’ – launching May 23

Drive like a maniac in this top-down shooter with GTA2-style vehicles and MOBA-style skills. Not only can you commit drive-by shootings and blow bad guys up with car bombs – but you’re able to teleport, go invisible and launch fireballs at them, too!

As you play you’ll gain cash and level up your mutant – unlocking extra powerful weapons, vehicles and skills. In the co-op campaign, these help you save the world from a zombie outbreak. In PvP, they just give you more fun ways to kick ass 🙂

Key Features
  • 5v5 multiplayer combat: Battle in game modes such as Capture the Flag, Checkpoint Racing, and Zombie Survival.
  • 4-player co-op campaign: Play the story solo or with friends online – and save the world from a mysterious outbreak.
  • Insane vehicle action: Ride with allies to commit drive-by shootings, detonate car bombs, and capture key objectives.
  • 20+ brutal weapons: Fire pistols, shotguns, snipers, explosives … or save up for deadly superweapons.
  • 30+ tactical skills: Create complex skill builds as you gain experience and permanently level up your mutant.
  • Secret base building: Place hidden chemicals to gain secret benefits such as spying on enemies and teleportation.
  • Leaderboards and difficulties: Replay the campaign in 4 difficulty levels, and set high scores on various leaderboards.
  • User-generated maps: Create maps in the editor and unlock kick-ass cosmetics whenever your maps are played.
