Astronauts + guns – gravity = Fun.
We’ve had another look at the upcoming astronaut shooter Boundary.
The video debuted during IGN Fan Fest 2021 and shows off what we can expect from the FPS. This includes rad zero gravity shooting, some cosmonauts – sorry, “astroperators” – riddling each other with bullets both inside and outside of a space station and… some spacecraft thing with two miniguns attached.
All in all, it looks like a lot of chaos, as well as a pretty fun time.
“Boundary is a multiplayer tactical space-based shooter that puts players in the role of a heavily armed astronaut, called an astroperator,” blurb on the game’s Steam page reads, “engaging in fierce team vs team zero gravity firefights and executing low-gravity operations on orbiting space installations against other enemy astroperators and other entities.”
Furthermore, if you sign up to the mailing list for Boundary, you’ll be automatically registered to the game’s upcoming beta tests – as well as provided with further information about these – and will receive information about the game’s eventual launch later in 2021.
Boundary is being developed by Chinese team Surgical Scalpels and was announced in 2019 with an initial 2020 release. The game has been bumped to 2021, but the studio has rolled out a free benchmarking tool for Steam to test the ray-tracing capabilities of your PC.
