'Combat Champions' Is A Multiplayer First Person Shooter Coming To PC In 2024, Sign-up For The Playtest - Screens & Trailer

Combat Champions is a fast-paced, first-person shooter where players drive the crowd wild with over-the-top stunts and map-altering destruction, all while holding key points and outshooting the opposition.

A fresh new IP, Combat Champions presents a world where corporations have abolished all lawyers, preferring to settle their business in battle, using guns (lots of guns) instead of a check book. Hired mercenaries kill or be killed, and all the outrageous action plays out to an adoring global audience who can’t get enough.

Combat Champions puts you in the spotlight as your team dominates corporate campuses turned game show arenas, performing crowd-pleasing over-the-top stunts and arena-altering destruction, all while holding key points and outshooting the opposition. It’s a high-stakes, high-reward world out there.

Your corporate overlords don’t pay you to be boring; luckily the CMA (Corporate Mediation Alliance) cameras are rolling and they’ve set the stage for your success. Maps full of destroyable terrain are littered with game show props like corporate mascots, exploding fuel drums, air rams, human slingshots, and slides incentivize you to rack up stunts, catch the attention of the CMA play-by-play commentators, and be handsomely rewarded.

Pick from a range of classes each with access to assorted weapons and gadgets, then run, slide and launch yourself across sprawling corporate campuses alongside your strike team. Work together to keep each other alive, mark opponents, and capture and hold points, all while blowing away the competition. Exciting halftime mini-games and tie-breaker events ensure you keep your head in the game for the duration of every action-packed match.

Familiar gameplay and controls, relatively short matches, and horizontal progression focused on customization all make Combat Champions easy to pick up for a fun casual experience.

“We announced Project Slingshot in the summer of 2022, and we’ve been taken aback by players’ enthusiasm and interest for our private Alpha.” CEO Mattias Kylén said, “We’re thrilled to announce our official name Combat Champions™ as well as share a first look at what we’ve been working so hard on as a team.”

Continuing, Mattias said, “We’re holding nothing back as we push forward and promise an absurd amount of action, mayhem, unique weapons, vertical 16v16 combat and giant mascots with guns. Everything we think makes for a good game has been included and we’re not stopping there! We can’t wait for gamers to gear up and fight for their beloved corporation of choice and look forward to sharing more over the coming months.”

Those itching to settle the corporate score in the name of live entertainment still have time to sign up for private Alpha testing.

Formed by an elite team of renowned industry veterans, the staff at C77 Entertainment has worked in senior positions on a raft of AAA hits, including the likes of HaloBattlefield, and Forza Motorsport. For their debut title, Combat Champions, C77 promises to utilize their experience and deliver a superlative-shooter on the grandest scale, featuring uniquely fresh gameplay and highly polished visuals.

Combat Champions is coming to PC (Steam) in 2024.
