Atlus, the developer for Catherine and the Persona series, has today revealed their latest creation in development with Old School Games studio, the co-op third-person shooter titled God Mode. Coming out for PC and consoles, God Mode is set to offer players a visceral shoot 'em up with elements of an RPG, all taking place in a humorously dark view of the afterlife.
God Mode combines non-linear gameplay, fast and frantic shooting, hordes of on-screen enemies, and stunning visuals. The game hosts a single-player mode, as well as online and offline (via LAN) co-op play with 1-4 players. In addition to accessing more than 11 different weapons for battle, players are also equipped with a special ability fueled by Rage, which is gathered by amassing kills. Players can choose from several different powers ranging from offensive, to defensive, to support; all of which can be upgraded.
A series of in-game modifiers known as Tests of Faith alter gameplay on the fly and ensure that matches rarely--if ever--play out the same way twice. Each character is fully customizable, both in appearance and equipment, which evolve throughout the game. Gold and experience are accrued by players in a reward system to unlock new weapons and unique, powerful abilities, both of which have the option for further upgrades.
The new title will priced at a quite low $10 and is set to release in the early part of 2013 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. You can check out the official teaser trailer below or the latest screenshots here
