'Deflector' Rolls Out Free Prologue, Early Access Coming In Q1 2022 - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Dec. 8, 2021 @ 9:00 a.m. PST

Deflector is a non-linear action roguelite with a combat system based on deflecting projectiles and a unique skill combination system.

Deflector is a high-octane roguelite where you can turn the tide of the bullet hell against your enemies. Become a part of the experiment to eradicate deadly viruses in the most stylish way possible.

Inhabiting Deflector’s deadly sci-fi world are strange but powerful ‘Specimens’, playable characters that can be enhanced through technology using collected DNA strains. Each Specimen offers a unique gameplay experience, with DNA that can be evolved and tuned to specific loadouts to fit different play styles, an essential part of Deflector’s constantly changing, non-linear experience. Deflector will land fully armed with a free-form upgrade system to create an incredible number of powerful weapon combinations. Wreak havoc with explosive clones, shake enemies to the core with a vast ground rupture or multiply deflected projectiles back at your enemies - all to the beat of Deflector’s blood-pumping heavy metal soundtrack.

With up to seven different playable characters, exciting and frenetic action, and an endless amount of skill combinations and strategies, Arrowfist Games is looking to ensure that their first major project is infinitely replayable.

Evolve as a player, because the fringes will put your skills to the test with some MASSIVE challenges.

Lock and load and descend into the virus-filled microcosm as developer Arrowfist Games today launches Deflector: Specimen Zero on Steam, the first in a series of free content for Deflector.

Blending together bullet-hell mechanics, alien technology and DNA-splicing with rogue-lite elements, Deflector: Specimen Zero serves as an introduction to the title’s innovative titular deflecting mechanic, allowing players to turn the tables on their enemies.

Deflector: Specimen Zero offers gamers a thirty-minute replayable experience to get a small but spicy taste of Deflector’s chaotic microcosmic world ahead of its full release. To reward players for jumping into the action early, they can unlock an exclusive Specimen skin to wear into battle when Deflector launches in Early Access next year..

  • Enter the eye of the bullet storm and experience explosive combat in a tsunami of missiles, lasers and more!
  • Flip the switch and deflect enemy attacks right back at them using the innovative deflection mechanic
  • Combine upgrades and unlock powerful game-altering abilities and combos with Deflector’s free-form upgrade system
