Exoborne is a new extraction shooter coming from the makers of Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt
Sharkmob has unveiled its first original gaming project at The Game Awards 2023: an open-world tactical extraction shooter called Exoborne.
Developed in Unreal Engine 5 for PS5, Xbox Series Exoborne's world and characters in an exciting cinematic trailer, which you can watch below.
During a press conference, Ny Breaking Gaming (TRG) learned that the post-apocalyptic location is set in the fictional Colton County, USA, where the world has been ravaged by deadly forces of nature. Players step into the shoes of Rebirth Guardians, who use futuristic equipment known as exo-rigs to protect humanity.
Some exo-rigs are focused on defense, while others are more focused on offense, allowing players to find a playstyle that suits them (skills are also linked to exo-rigs). Of course, the action is also influenced by your equipment. Exoborne is a high risk, high reward game. You can find better loot in more dangerous areas, but if you become extinct in the world you lose everything you're carrying, including your current gear.
But what are the threats? The aforementioned 'forces of nature' form a player-vs-environment (PvE) element Exoborne (you can even throw enemy players into tornadoes, the developers confirmed). There will also be PvE 'factions' on the map, protecting the areas with the best loot. The biggest threats, however, are other players, which must be included alongside these PvE elements if you want to emerge victorious and filled with loot.
Although we haven't seen much of it yet Exoborne, It looks promising. Petter Mannerfelt, creative director of Sharkmob's studio, told us in a conversation with TRG about which parts of the game he most wants players to experience: “Verticality, the forces of nature and using your exo in that environment. That's super fun and makes the game really stand out. It is really different and creates a gaming experience that you don't have in other games.”
Exoborne doesn't have a release date at the time of writing, so for now it's an upcoming game to keep an eye on.
