Atlus have 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, God Mode is a visceral shoot ’em up with elements of an RPG, all set in a humorously dark view of the afterlife. Players take on the role of a descendant of an ancient god who is turned mortal when his family is banished from Mount Olympus and must seek redemption and reclaim their place in the pantheon.
“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.”
God Mode hosts a single-player mode, as well as online and offline co-op play with1-4 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. God Mode will retail for $9.99.
