'Synced' Kicks Off Month-Long Open Beta On December 10th - Trailer

by Rainier on Nov. 29, 2022 @ 11:09 a.m. PST

Synced is a new twist on PvPvE that has players fighting each other while surviving 1,000+ Nano Zombies.

Set in a unique sci-fi universe, Synced combines survival, crafting and base-building, as well as massive PvPvE experience with up to 50 players and more than one thousand corrupted human cyborgs called Nanos.

the wake of a cataclysm known as the Collapse, the nanomachines have turned against their creators, consuming humans to propagate themselves and transforming into the deadly Nanos. In this apocalypse, players take on the role of a Runner, brave fortune-seekers who scour the Meridian for the valuable nano-energy substance known as Nerva. Players will team up in squads of three to encounter intense PvE and PvP battles.

Imagine a future where people have synchronized the physical body with nanotechnology. After what was meant to represent the next step in human evolution went terribly wrong, and a microorganism used in the new technology started taking over human bodies, the majority of the population has become marauding cyborgs known as Nanos. The remaining survivors now compete for the chance to make it off the planet.

The gameplay in Synced is built around a triangle structure of personal and group survival (PvE with narrative elements), preparing your group and crafting gear (base-building), and escorting as many survivors as possible to the shuttles leaving earth (massive PvPvE). In each round, players are competing not only against each other in their race off planet, but also to survive the onslaught of the swarms of Nanos that have taken over.

Synced gives players the ability to synchronise with deadly Nanos, effectively turning foe to friend. With different Nano classes to sync with – Crusher, Seer, Guardian and Suppressor – combined with the individual loadout and unique skill each Runner brings, this allows for a broad variety of combinations and tactical approaches.

Similar to classic looter shooters, Runners can loot resources in PvE and PvP matches to build up their character, while also unlocking powerful weapons and mods. Consequently, each match plays out as a unique run - leaning into the "rogue-lite" influence and distinguishing Synced from its peers.

Publisher Level Infinite and developer NExT Studios today announced an Open Beta for the upcoming 3rd person shooter Synced.

Beginning December 10, 2022 and running until January 15, 2023, the Open Beta introduces players to the game’s PvE and co-op gameplay for the first time.

The Beta will be available for PC players to download for free via Steam or client download from the official Synced website.

An additional video released today provides a deeper look at the world of Synced and introduces the key gameplay mechanics players will be able to experience during the Open Beta.

Key Features:

  • WEAPONIZE YOUR ENEMIES: Bring something new to the fight with Nano companions. Synchronize the Nanos you defeat to control companion classes with different abilities and customizable modifiers to outsmart and outlast the competition.
  • DEFEAT YOUR RIVALS: Team up in squads of three for fast-paced action across multiple game modes where you’ll need more than just shooting to survive. Use your environment, teammates and Nanos to deploy unique tactical combinations against roaming hoards and enemy teams.
  • CUSTOMIZE YOUR COMBAT: Discover and develop your Haven between matches. Make upgrades to weapons and gear to improve your survival skills and save other survivors to expand your skill set for your next battle.
  • SURVIVE A NOT-SO-DISTANT FUTURE: Immerse yourself in a story that grows with you. Progress through matches to meet more survivors and reveal new information. Unravel the wires that bind techno-optimism and corruption to the downfall of society as we know it.
