About Off the Grid
Set within a dystopian future, the cyberpunk styled shooter plans to evolve the genre through a strong emphasis on narrative progression, led by Chief Visionary Officer Neill BlomKamp and Script Writer Richard K. Morgan. In addition, industry veteran Olivier Henriot (Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed) assumes the role of Executive Narrative Director, ensuring a wealth of top-tier talent to bring the world of OTG to life.
“With OTG, our ambition is not only to create the Battle Royale 2.0 by adding deep progression,” commented Neill Blomkamp about OTG. “but to build an evolving world designed to take on a life of its own, changing in unexpected ways each time a player rejoins the game.”
“With an innovative approach to the Battle Royale core session flow and a deep narrative experience, we add purpose to each element of the game, allowing players to revisit the OTG world repeatedly where there is always something new to find and explore, and for us to expand upon.”
A Battle Royale like no other, in OTG, 150 players fight each other in PvP skirmishes, as well as PvE storyline missions using the same map inhabited by other players in real-time. Players have the freedom to control how the hard-boiled story unfolds, with each decision made directly impacting everyone’s gameplay. Core to the experience and deep narrative structure is the unique way in which players can craft, customize, and trade their in-game items with each other. In OTG, the lines between hero and villain become blurred as players fight to survive the covert corporate battles of the future.
Further information on Off the Grid will be announced in the coming months.
