GTFO looks like Payday meets Dead Space


Terrible, terrible name aside, 10 Chambers’ 4-player horror FPS GTFO looks like a good time for fans of running terrified down a claustrophobic sci-fi corridor. You can see its flashlights and monsters in the trailer below.

Oh dear — I’m already extremely stressed out after only a couple of minutes. I think this going to have to be something I save for long, bright summer days when there are plenty of people in the flat to look after me when I’m in a fragile state. I’ve seen a few people compare it to Aliens, which it absolutely does resemble, but I’m seeing a lot more of Dead Space, particularly in the monsters who seem to be less like aliens and more like horrifying mutants.

I only played a little bit of Payday and its successor (10 Chambers are formed in part by former Overkill employees), but I loved the tension that came from everyone scrambling to finish the objective before the SWAT team bursts through the door. It looks like GTFO is attempting something similar, just switching boring old humans in Kevlar for nightmarish body horror.

Instead of a band of robbers, players will be part of a four-person team of scavengers, exploring and looting an underground labyrinth that’s filled with monsters. There’s nothing quite like the threat of an army of grotesques to make hunting for artefacts and gear feel exciting again.

GTFO is due out in 2018.

    Oh boy! They better do VR support for this like they have done with Payday 2. That will be amazing.

      They you’d better
      impression that we have a very different taste than you around here, but that’s alright and we apprecciate your presence anyway!

        You better watch those Skub words coming out of your Skub mouth.

        It’s a dumb name for a dumb concept, I think it fits. I kinda like it for being amusingly terrible. It’s a million times better than the usual game naming convention of Generic Name: Unnecessary Subtitle.

    Ah, another game of setting up and shooting dumb ass AI goons that payday right at you in a straight line. I guess if you’re into games like this… Thematically, it makes more sense for weird monsters to payday at you than cops, at least.

    The most I could get into a horde mode AI game like this about shooting waves of paydaying enemies was L4D, and that was only kept alive by the near constant movement, sense of objective, and characters. Payday was just a slog.

    Finally, Alien Swarm has a 1st person mode!

    Looks pretty sweet. I followed it on Steam.

    Man i hope this won’t suck.

    Also, are there like just 3 british dudes that do the voiceovers for all things in-game-squad? I swear i’ve heard them before. Titanfall 2? Or Killing Floor 2?
