Neil Blomkamp is thought for movies like District 9, Elysium, and Chappie, however he’s been collaborating with developer Gunzilla Games on one thing completely completely different. It’s referred to as Off The Grid, and it goals to take battle royale video games to the subsequent stage.

That’s meant actually — Off The Grid’s official teaser trailer description guarantees “a cyberpunk battle royale 2.0 multiplayer shooter where you shape the story and the gameplay.” The trailer itself exhibits little or no although. Soldiers armed with techy weapons make their method by means of a jungle, rising close to a metropolis with futuristic vibes. It’s a scene that’s tonally much like Blomkamp’s motion pictures, however it does little to truly exhibit the game. Considering Gunzilla is aiming for a 2023 launch as per the outline, we do have loads of time to see it in motion.

As for the way Off The Grid plans to raise the battle royale style, the game will ship gamers “on head-spinning assassination and sabotage missions.” You’ll facet with a faction and carry these missions out throughout the “dystopian tropical island” seen within the teaser. Notably, the game will function 150 gamers — battle royales generally cap the depend at 100. For now, that’s all the knowledge we’ve got, however you possibly can join updates on the game’s web site.

Off The Grid is one in all a number of battle royale video games cooking behind the scenes. Halo Infinite’s Last Spartan Standing mode is out now, however a standalone battle royale separate from the primary game can be closely rumored. Developer Certain Affinity is alleged to be growing it for a November launch.
