Reasons for concern
Developed by V1 Interactive , a new studio of 30 developers founded by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto, Disintegration is in a league of its own as a mashup of the first-person shooter and real-time strategy genres. There are more robust FPSs and RTSs out there, but merging the two genres in equal measure brings a lot of depth to Disintegration , and it could be the gateway drug that leads gamers to dabble in unfamiliar territory. This collision feels disorienting at first, but eventually becomes nothing short of exhilarating as combat gradually increases in complexity. Disintegration does an excellent job of easing you into the experience. You need to play through the tutorial, and then you also kind of need to play through the entire single-player campaign before diving into multiplayer.
Disintegration's campaign is a robot-smashing romp, but multiplayer appears to be dead on arrival. Back at last year's E3 - an event that now feels like a lifetime ago - I had a chat with V1 founder Marcus Lehto to pin down what Disintegration was all about. Due to the game's dystopian sci-fi setting and Lehto's background as the co-creator of Halo, I came away thinking Disintegration's narrative had the potential to explore some fascinating topics, including post-humanism and the threats to our world today. In the end, Disintegration doesn't ever delve too far into these ideas: but what I didn't expect was a silly yet genuinely convincing shooter hidden beneath the surface. Disintegration bills itself as a first-person shooter with real-time strategy elements, half campaign and half multiplayer, set in a future version of Earth ravaged by every bad thing under the sun. Climate change, pandemic, war - all things so alien to us here in
Disintegration is a first-person shooter developed by V1 Interactive and published by Private Division. The game also features elements from the real-time strategy genre. The game is played from a first-person perspective. The player assumes control of Romer Shoal, a Gravcycle pilot. The Gravcycle can hover above the ground and from this position, Romer can issue commands to his four-person squad and activate their abilities while providing aerial support. The Gravcycle in the game has three distinct models, with each granting players different advantages. Romer can use his Gravcycle to highlight different areas of interest and resources, which can be salvaged to upgrade the Gravcycle, the ground units, and his own upgrade chip. The game's multiplayer modes can support up to 10 players.
