Upcoming FPS 'Core Decay' gets a new trailer, teams up with 3D Realms

By - | Views: 8,312

During the Realms Deep event, Ivar Hill's upcoming first-person shooter Core Decay was shown off again and they're now teaming up with 3D Realms.

"The year is 2089. For decades past, the availability of natural resources has declined to the point of societal collapse. Nations are governed by corporations, and the planet is on the brink of an ecological collapse that will leave nothing left alive."

This promising boomer shooter is now being co-developed and published by 3D Realms, which is quite fitting considering the inspiration from 90s shooters. Core Decay isn't just yet another retro themed shooter though, it has plenty that appears to make it unique including character upgrades with over 100 game-changing implants. Plenty more sounds intriguing about it like the level layout with special alternate routes, a special deep health system that affects multiple body parts and much more.

Have a look at the brand new trailer below:

We spoke to the developer over email, who confirmed their continued intention to support Linux. They were clear that it's not an "absolute promise" (what ever is?) but that it's a definite goal. So the usual.

Core Decay is releasing sometime in 2021. You can follow it on Steam.

Getting a great Deus Ex meets System Shock vibe with this and the music is exceptional. Beautiful looking game - that heli-pad in the rain! Stunning.

Feels a lot like HL1 with better lighting. Trailer doesn't really give me a good insight into the gameplay.

There's a longer gameplay video here:

It's a series of cuts of "exploration" gameplay. The voice acting sounds top quality. I'm excited about this one.

Why are they making a brand new game that looks like it was for the year 2002?
