Polish publisher Feardemic has announced that it is developing a cyberpunk-themed first-person shooter for the PC called 2084.
And we won’t have to wait long for it: it will enter Steam Early Access on December 13, 2018 (although Feardemic says its full commercial release is likely to happen in 2020). Feardemic describes it thus: “The result of a 72-hour internal game jam involving some of the developers behind >observer_ and Layers of Fear, 2084 casts players into a horrific post-apocalyptic labyrinth full of deadly hostiles. In order to eliminate their adversaries and, ultimately, escape, players must utilise an array of computer hacking commands on the fly while engaging in the game’s deep, satisfying combat.”
Feardemic CEO Marcin Kawa said: “We’re amazed at what the team has put together in just 72 hours. 2084 has a really polished look, is fun to play and will certainly please fans of cyberpunk and shooters in general. After checking out the final build we decided that the game deserves to be shared with players. It’s a super-fast-paced shooter with a hacking twist. We really can’t wait to hear what people think about the game!”
The company provided a few more insights into 2084’s gameplay: “2084 is an intense first-person shooter where player success is dependent on their skill as a hacker as much as a marksman. Only by hacking the network for perks such as ammunition and augmented health stats will players stand any change of escaping the mysterious cyberpunk chamber while under the constant deluge of mindless, murderous creatures. The Early Access version will include two game modes: a story mode where players must kill enemies and level bosses before facing off against the game’s final, most challenging adversary, and then an endless mode where gamers face wave after wave of enemies, killing everything in sight to gain top ranking on the leaderboards.”
