I was so curious about this game! It looked like a really nice mix of fast & old school shooter like DOOM, Quake and Unreal series and something similar to Hard Reset – which had loads of robots and all that. MOTHERGUNSHIP is out now from Czech studio Grip Digital and it’s fucking amazing! Read more below to know why.
Simple and fun!
The game looks simple at first, you start using your fists only, left and right click (or left/right trigger if you’re on gamepad / console) to throw some punches. Then you grab your first modules for guns, modules because every single weapon can be attached in a different way. This is pretty cool because you can change your fighting style as you progress through the levels. Check out some screenshots below to see how the game looks like:
When it comes to the plot line I don’t think it matters at all in this title since it’s just a run and gun game but don’t get me wrong, it’s still loads of fun and really reminds me of DOOM mixed with really old game series Descent for some reason. Maybe it’s the atmosphere?
Performance and options
Performance is pretty snappy, runs at 60 FPS on my old GTX 960 on 1080p so the game is not demanding at all which is good because you need at least those 60 frames per second to fully enjoy the fighting scenes in this one. By the way it’s Unreal Engine 4 so you can customize pretty much every single graphic option there is (check screenshots above to see the options menu)!
Cooperative mode and some details
If you’re a coop gamer like me you will be really happy because this game is going to receive a free DLC in around a month with additional coop mode.
Game highlights are:
- very own personalized arsenal of destruction
- the most modular gun-crafting systems ever seen in a videogame
- brutal, non-stop combat where thinking on your feet is the only way to survive
- hordes of alien machines, deadly traps, and intimidating bosses
- full CO-OP experience (coming in one month!)
MOTHERGUNSHIP is now available digitally on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for $24.99 / €24,99 / £19,99. You can grab it pretty much everywhere right now! Check out the launch trailer right here on YouTube.
