Batch 17 is a story focused third person shooter with co-op and PvP multiplayer, which sees you playing a clone who starts to dig into the memories of their last life, unearthing dark secrets about the remote mining colony you work on.
In Batch 17 you take control of an unnamed clone who wakes up during a resistance assault on the mining colony that you’re bred to protect. You don’t have the ability to speak, but you do have some lingering memories of a previous life which may help you, as you join the resistance and attempt to piece together the mystery of who you are and the significance of the 17th batch of clones.
Batch 17 takes a novel approach to multiplayer, allowing players to play full missions from the campaign mode co-operatively and to also allowing players to invade for PvP combat. This PvP invasion mode is the only way you can reach the games true ending as levelling your character is only possible via Epic mob encounters that can be found in the large supply of online player universes you can invade.
It’s a good looking game, with an intriguing sci-fi narrative and a novel Dark Souls-esque take on online multiplayer gameplay. Sign up for the Alpha now to uncover the mystery of the Batch 17 clones.
