ATLUS today announced God Mode, a new third-person shooter set for official release in North America in early 2013 for PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and PC. Developed by Old School Games, a new studio working in close collaboration with Saber Interactive (Halo CE HD), God Mode is set to bring together shoot 'em up with elements of an RPG, all set in a humorously dark view of the afterlife.
I love a good shooter, but throw in a few RPG elements, co-op and various multiplayer options and I am there, hook, line and sinker! so I'm really look forward to this one and will be keeping a close eye on its launch date. Players take on the role of a descendant of an ancient god who is turned mortal when his family is banished from Mount Olympus. Each is tasked to battle through the Maze of Hades in the underworld to seek redemption and reclaim their place in the pantheon, which sounds pretty cool to me.
"At ATLUS, we're constantly looking at ways to broaden the scope of content we deliver to our fans and God Mode presents another high-quality product in our line-up, delivered at a price point that will appeal to a wide range of gamers," said Tim Pivnicny, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, ATLUS. "We're introducing an exciting third-person shooter that looks like a retail product, tied together with gameplay features and cooperative play like no other downloadable title has done."
