Free to Play Co-op Shooter, ARC Raiders, Announced

The Resistance will defeat the mechanized threat!

Developer Embark Studios has just unveiled their first official game, ARC Raiders, during the Game Awards. ARC Raiders is a co-op third-person PvE shooter where players team up against the invading ARC, enemies that drop from orbit.

The game will be free to play on the Epic Games Store, Steam, Nvidia GeForce NOW’s game streaming service, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.

“We started Embark Studios three years ago with a blank canvas and some big ideas. Today, that canvas is a lot less blank and those ideas are becoming realities,” said Patrick Söderlund, co-founder and CEO of Embark Studios.

“With this reveal, we want to celebrate gameplay and give players more than a hint of how ARC Raiders looks and what it feels like to play. Ultimately for a co-op action game like ARC Raiders, that’s what matters the most. We look forward to sharing more about the game in the coming months.”

Defeating ARC requires more than simply pointing and shooting a gun, and more than one person trying to be a hero. It’s a game that both emphasizes and rewards teamwork at every turn.

Furthermore, the game allows players to loot fallen foes, and scavenge ruins for tools and gadgets that’ll prove beneficial in defeating ARC. Plan ahead and use everything in your surroundings to your advantage. But even the best laid out plans don’t always work out. Sometimes guns blazing is the only way to go.
