Arrowhead Games has posted a new trailer for The Showdown Effect, which introduces the viewer to the cast.

In it, Dutch McClone, a time-traveling Austrian searching for his identity is introduces, along with Lance Koboldski, a hardened cop with only “one day until retirement”, and Hailey Skye, who is described as “a plucky girl genius who’ll stop at nothing to uncover her father’s killer.”

Viewers will also be introduced to Shur Foo, who feels there’s no problem which can’t be solved “by punching it.” We tend to agree.

Beta sign-ups are being accepted on the official The Showdown Effect site.

The game is out on PC sometime this year.
