Gunzilla Games has today announced Off The Grid, an all-new AAA Battle Royale third-person shooter. Set within a dystopian future, the cyberpunk styled shooter plans to evolve the genre through strong emphasis on narrative progression. The project is being led by Chief Visionary Officer Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Chappie) and Script Writer Richard K. Morgan (Altered Carbon).
Industry veteran Olivier Henriot (Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed) assumes the role of Executive Narrative Director. Along with Blomkamp and Morgan, Off The Grid sports a wealth of top-tier talent bringing the world to life.
In Off The Grid, 150 players fight each other in PvP skirmishes, as well as PvE (Player Vs Environment) storyline missions. These use the same map inhabited by other players, in real-time. Players have the freedom to control how the story unfolds, with each decision made directly impacting everyone’s gameplay.
Core to the experience and deep narrative structure is the unique way in which players can craft, customise, and trade their in-game items with each other. In Off The Grid, the lines between hero and villain become blurred as players fight to survive the covert corporate battles of the future.
Neill Blomkamp on Off the Grid
“With OTG, our ambition is not only to create the Battle Royale 2.0 by adding deep player progression, but to build an evolving world designed to take on a life of its own, changing in unexpected ways each time a player rejoins the game. With an innovative approach to the Battle Royale core session flow and a deep narrative experience, we add purpose to each element of the game, allowing players to revisit the OTG world repeatedly where there is always something new to find and explore, and for us to expand upon.”Neill Blomkamp, CVO Off The Grid
