Publisher Gameforge announced a new free-to-play PC shooter called RockShot, developed by Soleil who is also working on Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, and previously did Devil’s Third on Wii U.
Here’s the announcement trailer for RockShot:
If the above trailer for RockShot reminds you of Devil’s Third Online, the multiplayer part of Devil’s Third, it’s because it was basically made by the same staff from Soleil, who developed both Devil’s Third and Devil’s Third Online.
Soleil is a subsidiary of Valhalla Game Studios, the developers of Devil’s Third. Up until recently, Tomonobu Itagaki, the creator of Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden series, was the representative director of Valhalla and was the main guy behind Devil’s Third, but he stepped down from his position last August. Since then, several key staff members from the Devil’s Third team has been working on RockShot, which very much appears to be a spiritual successor with similar elements and updated gameplay.
Here are more details about the game:
RockShot: Build a Base. Defend your Territory. Dominate the Battlefield.
Forge a team of friends and renegades, attacking enemy bases together in raid mode, while designing your own base to give your enemies an explosive welcome! Bases can be customized and enlarged at will. The goal is simple: expand the borders of your territory and increase your sphere of dominance!
Epic Melee Action and Deadly Aerial Attacks
Cut your teeth and earn experience in many familiar game modes, while enjoying some less familiar fare involving chickens, melons and zombies in regularly rotating event game modes. Perfect your melee combos using your favorite toys from a wide range of weaponry, including katanas and “Flying Vanguard” electric guitars. Or go apocalyptic and pound your enemies with surgical airstrikes to earn additional fire power, outfits and items for your team base.
- Dynamic third-person shooter
- Competitive raid mode with expandable team bases
- Regularly rotating PvP and PvE game modes
- Massive arsenal of weaponry from katanas to airstrikes
RockShot releases in June 2018 for PC via Steam as a free-to-play title.
