Switchblade is a free-to-play arena-based 5v5 vehicular shooter that combines high-octane combat with an ever-shifting array of strategic choices.

Switch weapon , switch vehicle, switch tactics...

Switchblade is a dynamic new vehicle action game, developed using the power of Unreal Engine 4.

From a team that has worked on titles such as Project Gotham Racing, Blur and Geometry wars, Switchblade is an arena-based 5v5 vehicular shooter that combines high-octane combat with an ever-shifting array of strategic choices. Everyone can take two vehicles into a match and switch between them at any time by calling a dropship. Seamlessly switch between heavily armed vehicles at any time to create endless tactical choices. Chase down a rival in a speedy fighter, then swap to a heavy-duty battlewagon to attack your competitor’s tower as your teammates switch between healers & artillery to back you up.


The closed beta opens to players on January 22nd and will only be available for a short period of time, so make sure to sign up here.

The vehicles all have a unique range of skills that are better for different roles such as support and attack. As the game progresses it really does pose different strategic challenges for the team, such as when to defend or when to just hold ground.

More vehicles are coming really soon. Further down the line are more maps, more game modes, and a little twist on audience participation. Switchblade will feature eSport support by featuring special broadcast modes so people can commentate on the action — along with some other features that have not been releaved yet.

Win battles, grab loot and create your own unique online superstar as you rise through the ranks of a spectacular e-sport championship.
