Overload is a superb looking new first person 6-Degree-Of-Freedom (6DOF) shooter from the creators of Descent, in which you swoop around levels blasting deadly robots, rescuing hostages and blowing up a reactors.
Overload takes the classic 6DOF gameplay of Descent and updates it for the modern era, creating an action packed shooter, with agile aircraft and plenty of spectacle. Being from the developers who created the genre, there’s certainly a lot of hype around Overload, and the Pre-Alpha teaser doesn’t disappoint.
The current Pre-Alpha build features three levels, a challenge mode, 8 types of weapons and a few different enemy types. It’s still very early in development, but it already looks great and (most importantly) it feels great – re-engaging with that nimble Descent-style control scheme feels like feels like you’re re-uniting with an old friend. We can’t wait to see more of this 6 degrees of awesome.
