Get Even is the new next-gen shooter from Painkiller: Hell & Damnation developer The Farm 51. We’ve got game details and a trailer inside.
It follows our report on Get Even screens and early details before the holidays. Hit the link for some debut screens.
The announcement is now official, and Get Even has been confirmed for a 2015 launch on PC and next-gen formats, promising to remove the divide between single and multiplayer experiences in new ways. As you play through the single-player game, enemies encountered in the world will exist a real-world players online. The catch it you’ll never know who’s an AI bot or who’s a real person.
Here’s the trailer:
In a press release sent to VG247 The Farm 51 explained that the plot revolves around two intertwined narratives, and that the route taken by players throughout the campaign will determine the character’s personality, throwing elements of horror and thrillers into the mix to make things more tense. Environments are also scanned in to make them more feel more realistic and expansive.
The gunplay comes with some new features, such as using the in-game smartphone to sync with guns, enabling players to shoot around corners safely. These ‘corner-shot’ weapons can also be customised throughout the campaign.
In a statement, The Farm 51 CEO Wojtek Pazdur said, “As an independent developer, it would be foolish to go head-to-head with the larger ompanies and create a ‘me too’ knock-off, and frankly we wouldn’t be interested in doing it. We believe that there is still a ton of content and design creativity that has yet to be explored in first-person genre, as well as an audience beyond the warfare player – those are the people we are going for with Get Even.”
