One Word: MULTIPLAYER!!!

Posted February 15, 2016 by Luke Schneider

At Revival Productions, we’ve been consistent about our desire to make Overload a great single-player game, a high-quality 6-DOF shooter that everyone can enjoy. We are aiming to release it in March of 2017 on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC/Mac/Linux. None of that is changing. However…

MULTIPLAYER EXPANSION; FREE TO ALL BACKERS!

Due to overwhelming demand, we are now committing (if the Kickstarter makes it) to making a MULTIPLAYER EXPANSION for Overload. We always wanted to have multiplayer and believed we would eventually, but we did not feel comfortable making a public commitment to it. It’s too easy for something like multiplayer to blow up the schedule and adversely affect the single player game. We want to hit our single player date with a great game.

So, here’s our plan: We will deliver the single player game in March, 2017. If the Kickstarter campaign is successful, we will deliver multiplayer as an expansion sometime after that (likely 6-8 months). Everyone who backs the campaign at the DIGITAL EDITION reward level and above will receive a free copy of the multiplayer expansion. We are not sure on the scope, but it will include the competitive modes and key features that kept Descent going for over 20 years.

Head on over the Kickstarter page now to read more about Overload.
