During the Gamescom Opening Night presentation, Disintegration, a new sci-fi FPS from Marcus Lehto (Co-Creator of the Halo series), V1 Studios and Private Division was revealed. The game was teased about a month ago and is this month’s feature on EDGE Magazine.
Disintegration seems to be the perfect combination of Destiny and Halo and according to Marcus is unlike any FPS ever made and plans on reinventing the genre. The Disintegration trailer which was revealed during Gamescom had no direct gameplay but seemed to showcase what we can expect from the game in terms of the action.
The trailer showcased some in-flight mechanics as the main character hovered in the air and shot down a load of missiles towards enemies on the ground. The game seems to take place on Earth and takes on a sci-fi approach.
In Earth’s near future, climate extremes, overpopulation, food shortages, and a global pandemic led to nations collapsing and humankind on the brink of extinction. Scientists adopted a means in which the human brain was removed and surgically encased into a robotic armature; a process known as Integration. It was meant to be a temporary solution to an unavoidable crisis.
It was a good thing for decades, allowing humans to survive. But some of the Integrated saw this new form as the future of humanity. With no desire to reverse the process, the post-humanist Integrated stratified, calling themselves the Rayonne. Global war soon erupted, and Rayonne forces now seek to hunt down any remaining humans, forcing their integration, and destroying those who don’t share their views.
In Disintegration, you play an Integrated character named Romer. He’s one of many who rebelled and are now outlawed by the Rayonne.
It’s up to you to lead a small group of these Outlaws, people who have chosen to fight back and survive, into a brighter future where we protect those they care about and hope to one day become human again.
Take a look at the site for a full rundown on this upcoming shooter. Disintegration is currently in development for PS4, Xbox One and PC but we won’t be surprised if it is being developed for next-gen consoles too.
