Based on webcomic and cartoon sequence Cyanide And Happiness and developed by Galvanic and Explosm, Rapture Rejects is a impolite and crude isometric battle royale shooter out in early entry right this moment and free for the weekend. The Rapture has occurred, and the final fifty idiots combat for God’s amusement, with the fortunate final survivor getting the ultimate ticket to heaven. Up to fifty gamers run round scavenging weapons just like the Toaster Full Of Knives and CD Launcher whereas dropping literal F-Bombs on one another and attempting to outrun Armageddon. It’s out now, and free to strive till Monday, 6pm GMT. An impressively dumb trailer lurks beneath.
Rapture Rejects does have a fairly distinct really feel to it. Combat tends to be up-close and messy because of projectiles being gradual, and canopy will not be solely important however simply discovered. There’s a number of maneuvering concerned in scoring a kill, and you’ll’t actually sneak up on somebody except they’re received their view rotated (achieve this usually) in order to cover you from their imaginative and prescient. Weapons have alt-fires, and there’s a number of give attention to simply getting in there and brawling. Whether that’ll draw the Fortnite or Plunkbat crowds, I wouldn’t even hazard a guess. Multiplayer audiences are fickle issues.
The game does supply good character customisation, too. Characters don’t have any outlined gender, however there are toggle-boxes so as to add imprecise bulges for (and I quote) “Boobs” and “Dong” and you’ll have both, neither or each. The couple rounds I simply performed gave the impression to be operating below fifty gamers on the European server, however the game had solely simply come out moments in the past. This is after all an early entry launch, and there’s lots extra deliberate. Galvanic and Explosm don’t suppose it’ll be completed till early 2020, and one of many largest options deliberate is procedurally generated maps.
Rapture Rejects is out now in early entry here on Steam, and free to strive till Monday, December third at 6pm GMT. It’s a teensy 166mb obtain, too. After the weekend, it’ll value £15.49/€16.79/$19.99. TinyBuild are publishing this one.
