Heck, tell me a new co-op FPS is coming from a collective whose logo is a ten-chamber revolver cylinder and I’ll already be a touch excited. Surely no bad shootyshoots could come from anyone who understands the importance of ridiculous huge revolvers? Maybe that’s a bit too over-keen. But 10 Chambers Collective was also founded by Ulf Andersson, co-founder of Payday developers Overkill and co-creator of the co-op heist FPS series. Ooh! Their game is still a bit of a mystery, but what they are saying has my attention. Also, that giant revolver.
“In our new game, cooperation will be essential as you progress through the game, the further in you get the more you have to work together,” Andersson said in today’s announcement. They say they’ve been working on it for a couple of months, and it’s too early to show anything.
“Each session will be dynamic and give players the opportunity to decide how to tackle obstacles – whether by force, stealth or any other creative way – in order to survive whatever horrors they encounter.”
I do wonder what sort of horrors they are. Probably not crimes, yeah? Wait hang on, check this out, I think I can do some ‘satire’ here: “Horrors? Like microtransactions? Ha ha!” Nnno. I’m sorry, reader dear. I’ve rarely been more disappointed in myself.
Andersson’s departure from Starbreeze was announced in May, then 10 Chambers popped up and started muttering vaguely about a co-op FPS. They say every team member has an equal share in the studio, which is nice. We may not know much about their game now, but it’s more than we did before.
