No, this isn’t another Doom post. This is a new action game brought to us by the increasingly good taste makers over at Atlus. God Mode, which is being developed by Old School Games. The title of this article sums it up. It’s a 3rd person action game where you just fight off hordes of enemies. In some ways, it does remind me of Doom in the action sense except it’s also designed for 4 player co-op. The graphics look pretty nice too, opting for a traditional 3D look. It looks like it’s chock full of cadavers and zombies too.
Atlus sum up God Mode like this, “Do you like running? How about gunning? What if special abilities are thrown into the mix? Upgradable weapons? Let’s say there’re dozens of on-screen enemies to unleash this firepower on, and as your reward for dispatching them you get experience and gold to collect that can be used for character customization and new equipment–all the while playing alongside friends in 4-player cooperative play! If you like the sound of all this, then you’ll love God Mode.”
The game is also set to have some leveling up in addition to its online co-op. You can even customize your character. Atlus continues the product description, “Retro shooter action and RPG elements are combined in this new downloadable third-person shooter. God Mode combines non-linear gameplay, fast and frantic shooting, hordes of on-screen enemies, a fully functional online coop mode, and features visuals and gameplay that rival that of a full-priced boxed title. Matches rarely–if ever–play out the same, as dozens of in-game modifiers can significantly alter the gameplay on the fly. Characters are fully customizable, both in appearance and equipment, which continually evolve. Gold and experience are constantly accrued and used to unlock new and satisfying weaponry and unique powerful abilities, both of which can be further upgraded.”
Not gonna lie… I’m pretty excited about this game. It looks like it could a good time killer so long as the action is as loud and harsh as it seems in the video.
