Ubisoft announces Atomega, a PC exclusive shooter coming next week

In a surprise announcement, Ubisoft has unveiled a brand new game developed by Reflections, the same studio behind Grow Home and Grow Up games. However, the new game is a far cry from the platforming style gameplay of the studio's last offerings.

Titled, Atomega, the new game is a first person shooter that tasks players with collecting mass, which can be gathered from mass 'blocks' laying around or by attacking other players to get their mass. As mass that is collected by players grants them points, whoever holds the most points at the end of a round becomes the victor. The announcement trailer showcases the gameplay and its blocky nature quite well, seen above.

The game seems to be purely multiplayer-centric, with its tone being described by Ubisoft as "lighthearted," although its setting seems quite bleak:

Atomega takes place at the very end of time where reality is rapidly dissolving. All that exists are Exoforms, super advanced post-biological lifeforms, masters of matter, energy and the last distant relative to man and machine. As the laws of physics slowly repeal, the Exoforms fight for fun and dominance, replaying the final moments of the universe in an arena at the edge of destruction.

Each round will be 10 minutes long, with up to eight players fighting each other for the most mass. The game offers eight unique forms players can evolve to by gathering mass, from a single cube to a giant mech-like being that fires a death ray from its face.

What is also surprising is the release date, with Atomega slated to arrive just a week from today on September 19. At least, for now, the game seems to be a PC exclusive, with its Steam page already up and running.
