'Ripout' Steam Early Access Update Adds New Enemy, Weapon, Mission, Performance Improvement And More

by Rainier on Feb. 23, 2024 @ 9:21 a.m. PST

Ripout is a co-op horror first-person shooter where you fight your way through alien infested ships with friends and a Living Pet Gun.

Powered by Unreal Engine, Ripout explores humanity's fight for survival thousands of miles away from Earth in the not-so-distant future.

The game is set in the 21st century after humanity reached beyond Earth to conquer the solar system. The golden age of humanity began, but it would quickly turn disastrous. Alien forces emerged and Earth's inhabitants had to find a way to keep them at bay. After genetically engineering a powerful but dangerous bioweapon to fend off alien invaders, humanity falls victim to its own creation. The cell turned sentient, causing those soldiers to transform into mutants.

You wake up in the year 2084 as one of the last surviving Earth's soldiers, the fate of humanity resting in your hands. Will you preserve mankind's legacy or will our race end up consumed by the sentient Cell?

Ripout is an online co-op horror FPS with elements of sci-fi. The game features procedurally generated missions with scaling difficulty, a living Pet Gun that accompanies the player and engages in combat against alien mutants, weapon and player customization, and much more. All of this is available against the backdrop of spaceships that are home to some of the most dangerous creatures. Players need to fight their way through these spaceships, undertake missions, and try to be one step ahead of humanity's number one enemy.

Ripout provides a great co-op experience where team play comes first. Fearless and gifted players and their friends are needed to stop cosmic horrors from taking over the world and infecting all living forms.

Your task is to fight off these mutants and save humanity.

The biggest Steam Early Access update yet for Ripout is available today ahead of the game getting a monster 25% discount.

The Monstrous update brings a new enemy, new mission type, new sidearm, new enhancement pet buffs for your living gun, performance improvements, new animations, bug fixes and more.

The new Bulwark enemy is added to the roster of monstrosities you have to confront in RIPOUT. An enforcer who provides cover for other enemies while under attack, it is fully shielded while walking towards the player. You must wait until it starts its minigun attack for it to become vulnerable to damage. The new Buckshot sidearm is a tool you might want to employ to help take it down! This close-range sidearm has scaling damage output based on how close you are to the target, making it a thrilling risk/reward gamble for players willing to get up close and personal.

Along with this new enemy and weapon, players have a new mission type to deal with. The Recycler missions require you to clear up upcoming bio canisters getting fed into the main recycle bin. Fail to clear enough canisters and the recycler will explode and your mission will fail.

During the early access period, the game will see several content updates that will include a variety of new features such as new enemies and weapons, new missions, and a lot more based on the feedback received by the community.

Key Features:

  • Cooperative PVE Gameplay: Embark on a variety of missions and explore derelict ships alone or in teams of up to 4 players.
  • High Variety of Reconfigurable Monsters: Fight genetically altered beings who are able to strengthen and reconfigure themselves by attaching smaller mutants to their bodies. The player will never know what to expect from their enemies!
  • Living Pet Gun: Stand your ground using your trusty Pet Gun and harness the power of the sentient biotech yourself and turn it against your foe.
  • Weapon Modifications and Character Classes: Customize your weapon and choose between multiple character specializations to find the perfect mix for your playstyle.
  • Quick, Action-Packed Missions: Explore countless derelict ships in various short, 10- to 20-minute missions and prepare for the unexpected; you'll never know what horrors lurk around the corner.
  • Procedurally Generated Levels: Enjoy endless replayability and suspense, thanks to our procedurally generated level design.
  • Scalable Difficulty: Expect a challenge for teams of all sizes, thanks to Ripout's scaling difficulty.
  • A cozy hub ship: Players can take a break after a long shooting fiesta. Play some arcade minigames from the 80s and get ready for another randomly generated mission.

Set off on a once-in-a-lifetime journey through space in search of human survivors. Sanctuary holds the key. But where is it? And, most importantly, what is it?

Ripout is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam) in 2024.
