Former EA chief designer Patrick Söderlund’s newest team Embark Studios finally revealed its first title, ARC Raiders. It’s a free to play, co-op sci-fi shooter that sees the human resistance battling the overwhelming threats of the ARC. Check out the first trailer below.
For the moment, ARC Raiders is a PvE-focused third person shooter. Along with various mechanized flying drones, there are giant walker-like tanks whose legs can be blown apart. Explosives and other weaponry can be employed, though players also seem capable of leaping around with little effort. It’s interesting especially given the music choice.
ARC Raiders is slated to release in 2022 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, PS5 and GeForce Now. It’s published by Nexon and sees players scavenging their tools from the ruins to overcome the ARC. Stay tuned for more details and gameplay footage in the coming months (hopefully along with information on the game’s monetization)
