Fortnite Support Studio Announces New Project: Sci-fi Survival Game, Let Them Come: Onslaught
Tuatara Games, the studio well-known for its AAA VFX support for popular games such as Valorant, Fortnite, and Godfall, has announced its latest project. The new sci-fi survival shooter is titled Let Them Come: Onslaught and is set to be released on PC via Steam Early Access in the first quarter of 2024. The studio, which released Bare Butt Boxing earlier this year, has been building anticipation for this game, where players take on the role of a lone survivor on an alien planet, using nuclear weapons to annihilate hordes of hostile creatures.
The game trailer for Let Them Come: Onslaught offers a sneak peek into the exciting and action-packed gameplay. This new project promises dynamic weather and a comprehensive selection of weapons, covering everything from classic flamethrowers to futuristic laser beams and electric grenades. Players can also call on orbital strikes to decimate enemy forces. As players battle through the alien hordes, they earn XP, which can be used to upgrade their character's health, defense, and weaponry and to purchase battlefield activation shields.
Tuatara Games founder, Klemen Lozar, expressed the team's excitement about the release in a recent press statement. "We are huge fans of this emerging gameplay experience and are thrilled to reveal our love letter to the games that inspired us," Lozar stated. "Using our team’s VFX expertise, survivors can expect to fight for their lives through adrenaline-inducing experiences that have the best visuals of the genre."
Let Them Come: Onslaught also features roguelite elements, thus adding an additional layer of complexity and replayability. Despite the inevitable losses between each run, players have the opportunity to accumulate credits on the battlefield that can be used for permanent upgrades in the Armory, ensuring a sense of progression and achievement throughout the game.
Let Them Come: Onslaught is set to hit Steam Early Access sometime in Q1 of 2024 with a price tag of $4.99. The decision to launch on Early Access aligns with Tuatara Games' commitment to fine-tuning and optimization, ensuring the final 1.0 launch is poised to deliver an optimal gaming experience. With its blend of fast-paced action, strategic gameplay, and visually stunning effects, Let Them Come: Onslaught is set to be a must-play for all sci-fi survival shooter fans.
