Chinese Independent developer, Surgical Scalpels today announced that the Steam page for its near-future multiplayer shooter, Boundary is now live for any PC players keen to add the game to their wishlists.
The Surgical Scalpels team backed by Chinese Publisher Huya are now in the process of scheduling the forthcoming Beta and eventual launch with specific dates due to be revealed shortly.
The multiplayer tactical space-based shooter puts players in the role of heavily armed astro-operators engaging in fierce zero gravity firefights and executing low-gravity operations on orbiting space installations against enemy astronauts. The game will include six classes of astro-operators to choose from at launch with further classes to be added post launch.
"After encountering some unavoidable delays due to Covid-19, we’re excited to be forging ahead to line up a simultaneous launch across PlayStation 4 and PC for Boundary. While any delay to a well-received concept is never ideal, we chose to invest the additional time to deliver solid product for our fans and growing community,” said Frank Mingbo Li, CEO, Technical Director and Founder of Surgical Scalpels.
Designed as a light MOBA styled game with 5 Vs 5 and 3 Vs 3 tactical combat, Boundary is setting its sights on delivering a fast and agile shooter geared around zero gravity combat.
With a whole host of customization options for players to choose from, Boundary aims to provide a tailor-made approach to loadouts, space suits and tactical space warfare. Weapons range from machine pistols to converted assault rifles and more powerful sniper rifles, all of which utilize a modular upgrade system to mix and match at the player’s preference. Players can also customize individual weapons using a huge range of available components including optical sights, muzzles, stocks, barrels and foregrips.
Aside from the traditional Team Deathmatch and smaller Versus modes, Boundary will also include Facility Capture and Orbital Purge game modes. 8 Multiplayer maps provide a mixture of space installations to fight amongst, including a wreck strewn debris field, Solar Farm and orbiting museum to name a few.
