'Disintegration' (ALL) Developer V1 Interactive Shuts Down

by Rainier on March 8, 2021 @ 10:49 a.m. PST

Disintegration is a sci-fi, first-person shooter that blends real-time tactical elements to create an entirely new experience.

Set on Earth in the near future, humankind’s only hope for survival is through Integration, a process in which the brain is transferred to a robotic armature. You play as Romer Shoal, a highly-skilled  Gravcycle pilot. Romer commands a small resistance force still grasping onto the fading memories of their human selves. With the domineering Rayonne forces set on eliminating the final remnants of human society, it’s up to Romer and his crew of Outlaws to fight back and reboot humanity.

Pilot a variety of weaponized Gravcycles over the course of the campaign while simultaneously commanding your crew on the ground. Learn to leverage a variety of unique unit abilities and master your own personal arsenal while dominating the battlefield.

In Disintegration, players will journey to the near future, when humankind is on the brink of extinction and turns to technology in their hope of survival. Through a process known as Integration, the human brain is removed and surgically encased into a robotic armature. A domineering enemy superpower known as the Rayonne emerges, driven mad by their newfound supremacy, and begin capturing what remains of humanity forcing them into robotic Integration.

After disappointing review(s), developer V1 Interactive and publisher Private Division shut down the multiplayer servers merely 3 months after its launch, so it comes as no big shock that the developer decided to close its doors.

"We are sad to inform you that V1 Interactive is officially closing. We want to thank all the talented people at V1, both past and present, who helped make the last 5 years wonderful. And a heartfelt thanks to the amazing community that supported us."

"At V1, our priority has been to the wellbeing of our employees. We’ve been transparent with them about the state of things for months and are making this decision now so they still have ample time to search for new jobs while being supported by our studio." stated V1 Interactive President Marcus Lehto.

Disintegration features a full single-player campaign where the player takes on the role of Romer Shoal, an expert in piloting a Gravcycle, a hovering quad-engine vehicle originally used for search and rescue missions that has been transformed into an armored chassis bristling with powerful weapons. Romer commands a small resistance force fighting to save what remains of humanity.

The game also features three different multiplayer game modes at launch, each with a variety of maps. These frantic team-based battles require smart coordination, utilizing ground units with individual abilities while simultaneously maximizing the destructive weapons on the Gravcycle. Players will choose from several Crews, each featuring a unique loadout and role in combat.
