'Aftercharge' (ALL) Limited-Time PC Open Alpha Next Week - Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 3, 2017 @ 3:30 p.m. PDT

Aftercharge is a 3v3 asymmetrical battle between invisible robots and a squad of invincible guards.

The game is set on distant planet Dusk 11 exploited by the Aftercharge corporation for the energy living at its core. The company is in trouble as their line of worker robots called workonics are defecting because of the planet's unstable energy. The robotic uprising is putting the company's extractors in danger. Initially built to avoid corporate espionage, the stealth workonics require a very special set of armaments to deal with. Aftercharge corp has no choice but to send its special enforcer squad to shut down the robots and protect their operations.

The other team are the enforcers, they are class-based and rely on an arsenal of weapons and abilities to spot and stop the workonics. They are invincible as no attack or abilities from the robots can harm them. Their weaponry uses energy rapidly and requires proximity with an extractor to recharge. To win the match, they need to successfully deactivate all three robots simultaneously.

Mark your calendars! The intense clash between the invisible and the invincible begins on October 13th in the limited-time open alpha for Aftercharge.

Ahead of the game’s release in early 2018, experience Aftercharge’s accessible yet difficult to master competitive gameplay. The Aftercharge open alpha will be available for download on Steam for free throughout the weekend! You do not want to miss out on previewing what’s sure to be one of 2018’s most unique multiplayer games.

From October 13 - 15, 2017. This is a three-day open alpha available to the public! 

Download the Aftercharge open alpha when it goes live on Steam.

The first publicly playable alpha version of Aftercharge — a clever yet deceptively simple first-person multiplayer game — will go live on Steam. In Aftercharge, one team of three invisible robots works to destroy six energy extractors on the map, while another team of three indestructible (and heavily-armed) human(oid) guards attempts to stop them. It sounds simple, right? Think again. Each team features three class types uniquely suited to combat the opposing team’s individual abilities. 

In each match of Aftercharge, the workonics team have their objective to destroy all six extractors dispersed around the map. On top of their invisibility, these robots have the handy ability to boost each other back to life at any time provided they get close enough. This team must coordinate their attacks, create distractions, and combine their abilities to succeed.

“While Aftercharge is a shooter at first-glance, the core gameplay mechanic of invisible attackers against armed defenders was invented in a totally different space. It has enough in common with shooters so that fans of the genre will feel comfortable. With Aftercharge we wanted to play with the rules and bring new mechanics to create a quick-paced competitive experience that’s fresh, highly strategical, and yet approachable” - Laurent Mercure from Chainsawesome Games

Which side will you take in the battle for control of Dusk 11’s precious resource? The stealthy robots with a vengeance or the troopers sent to stop them?

Aftercharge will be available on PC and Xbox One in early 2018
