The devs behind Fortune’s Run, an upcoming shooter/immersive sim that appears like a grungier The Fifth Component and performs like Jedi Knight at 1.5x velocity, simply introduced a July-September early entry launch window with a fly-through of considered one of its early ranges. This “ridiculously large, totally simulated centrifugal gravity area station” incorporates a fully-modeled exterior set towards the void of area, and strikes me as a captivating departure from the game’s demo stage, Bother at Membership V’heni.

Set to extra of the game’s banger breakcore soundtrack, the trailer weaves out and in of hydroponic labs, lengthy upkeep shafts, and enemy-infested dwelling quarters. I’ve bought my fingers crossed that, with all of the element put into the station’s whirring, continuously spinning exterior, we’d do some little bit of EVA within the inky black as a part of this mission. Regardless of the case, I am simply glad to lastly see one other enviornment for Fortune’s Run’s pulse pounding swordplay.
A few of Group Fortune’s different posts on Twitter showcase simply what we’ll be getting as much as on this area station. This clip reveals protagonist Mozah getting up within the guts of its hydroponics system, turning off a hearth suppression system, slicing open a pipe filled with fertilizer, and setting it alight to set off an out-of-control fireball within the pressurized atmosphere. In the meantime, you will must hand-cut bulkheads with a blowtorch, revealing hidden paths by way of the power.
One other few posts share some perception on new enemy designs, together with how Group Fortune turns fully-modeled 3D characters into pre-rendered 2D sprites, producing the game’s distinctive throwback look. I am a giant fan of this sweet pink Darktrooper-looking man and his delightfully anime cinematic intro.
In fact, whereas I am pumped for the area station stage, a fair greater get could be a promised practice stage. These early screens do not give away an excessive amount of, however I’ve already bought a picture in my head of the practice missions from Jedi Academy or Blood, simply blown out to Deus Ex ranges of element and reactivity. Possibly one thing just like the sick underground tram from Wolfenstein: The New Colossus however with a cool skybox as an alternative of simply, properly, darkness.
Fortune’s Run has been considered one of our most anticipated video games of 2023 ever since its Realms Deep Demo blew us away final Fall, and we will not wait to lastly attempt extra ranges of this hanging, singular shooter. You’ll be able to at present wishlist the game on Steam, and likewise try its gaming mag-throwback official web site that was so cool, we wrote about it.
