Ubisoft has announced its new game called Atomega, and it’ll be coming to Steam on September 19. The game’s an online multiplayer FPS, and comes from Ubisoft Reflections, which is the developers behind the quirky Grow Home and Grow Up games. Players take control of an atom called an Exoform. The player is tasked with accumulating mass and absorbing it into their atom to expand, and grow ever larger.
According to Ubi, ‘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 and energy and the last distant relative to man and machine’. Players will take control of one of these Exoforms. ‘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.’
The objective of Atomega is to accumulate mass, and this can be done in one of two ways: searching for it, or defeating opponents before absorbing their mass into the player’s Exoform. This is where the shooting aspect of the game comes into play, with players taking part in deadly multiplayer matches, populated by up to eight players. The matches should last around ten minutes each, there are no teams and everyone is fair-game. As players gain more mass, the points won in each game increase as their Exform grows in size from atom to omega.
Atomega is out on September 19 for PC.
