From the mind of Marcus Lehto, one of the creators of the Halo universe, comes the latest sci-fi FPS, with an RTS twist – Disintegration on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Disintegration is set in a future where humanity has suffered immensely, but has also found a way to endure things. By implanting human brains into a robotic exoskeleton in a process known as Integration, humanity hopes to one day escape these metallic shackles and return to a carbon-based body. There are those however that see Integration as a permanent solution for humanity’s problems, and will go out of their way to those that stand against these ideals. They call themselves the Rayonne.
In Disintegration on Xbox One, PS4 and PC you play as Romer Shoal, an Integrated human that was captured and imprisoned for standing against the Rayonne but with a little help from others in a similar position, manage to escape their prison and form an alliance to fight back against their captors.
Romer is also a gravcycle pilot and as he hovers above the ground, he can survey the scene. From here, he can fire his mounted guns, or issue commands to his allies. This is where the balance of FPS and RTS comes in: Romer has an arsenal to directly attach hostiles or can outwit them with a team of up to four additional units.
There is also a huge multiplayer component as players can take control of one of nine different factions that all feature unique combinations of units. Before jumping in with an untested team though, there is a multiplayer sandbox so you can make an informed decision before taking the fight online.
Key Features of Disintegration include:
- • Tactical Gravcycle combat: Pilot a heavily armed Gravcycle featuring a variety of firepower, maneuverability, and abilities. Also command your crew on the ground, directing them to attack targets, pick up items, and use their unique abilities to turn the tide in battle.
- • Riveting single-player campaign: From Marcus Lehto, the co-creator of Halo and creative director of Halo: Reach, comes an all-new sci-fi saga. Play as Romer Shoal and confront the Rayonne, a rising global army set on eliminating what remains of humanity.
- • Frenetic multiplayer action: Battle across a variety of maps in three intense, team-based 5v5 multiplayer modes. Choose your favorite Gravcycle and lead your crew alongside your teammates, competing against opposing pilots to win objective-based matches.
- • Customize your crews: Each multiplayer crew has their own individual look and personality, along with different skillsets and playstyles. Master your favorite crew and customise your experience with a variety of skins, banners, badges, and emotes.
