Flat Earth Games‘ arcade stealth-shooter Metrocide, which was first announced back in June, now has a tight release window of mid-October for PC and Mac. You will be able to purchase the game via Steam as well as other digital stores. For those who aren’t familiar with the game, here are some further, official details on the story and gameplay that expands on what we first reported in June;
In Metrocide, players take on the role of T.J. Trench, a notorious contract killer in a cyberpunk dystopia, who must buy transit out of the city one assassination at a time.
Players can weild a variety of weapons and tools to push their way through this fast-paced arcade stealth-shooter – utilising everything from traditional rifles and blasters to EMP Bombs and Holo-lures, ditching bodies as they go. Ever-present is a nightmarish fleet of cop drones, lurking above the skyscrapers and ready to pounce the second Trench’s cover is blown.
With escalating difficulty, multiple game modes and perma-death, Metrocide will push players to balance reflexes and tactics in a city where everyone wants you dead.
