During The Game Awards, publisher Level Infinite and developer Sharkmob revealed the new and upcoming original game, Exoborne. In development for PC and consoles, this tactical open world extraction shooter puts you in the middle of a world ripped apart by apocalyptic forces of nature.
“Exoborne is not just a game to us, it’s so much more than that!,” says Petter Mannerfelt, Creative Director at Sharkmob. “This is a long time in the making. We are excited to finally reveal it to the world and hear what people think about both the universe and the thrilling, action-packed playground we have created.”
“Since the founding of the studio, we have had the ambition to create our own original game concepts and we are now one step closer to releasing the first of two currently in development,” adds Fredrik Rundqvist, CEO of Sharkmob.
Humanity is facing an unprecedented global collapse after the failure of its last hope, Project Rebirth – turning our world into a hostile place. You will explore a part of the southeastern US, being torn apart by brutal forces of nature. Public events, ever-changing threats by the world itself, and risky missions let players write their own stories each time they enter the world of Exoborne – like having an epic gunfight in a tornado.
Players take on the role of Reborn, extraordinary survivors fitted with an implant enabling them to use the powerful Exo-Rigs. Equipped with this epic technology, they thrive in a world plagued by warring factions, deadly elemental chaos, and other hostile Reborn. Utilizing their Exo-Rigs abilities allows players to survive the fierce forces of nature and channel their might in combat and movement, making it the ultimate apocalyptic power fantasy.
Big risks can yield big rewards, which has never been more true than when players enter the heart of a storm to find the best possible tech – but will they be able to bring it back home? Crafting new items and gear with remnants of technology players find in the world will allow them to tackle unforeseen challenges. Meanwhile, the stakes will constantly be raised and the fear of losing it all is constantly present. Exoborne offers different difficulty levels and the promise of challenging and gratifying end-game content.
