Lightbulb Crew, the independent studio composed of talented and passionate game developers from Ubisoft and DICE, has announced that its top-down team shooter, Games of Glory, will be coming to PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. In Games of Glory, players must work together in fast-paced 5v5 or 3v3 matches using a combination of free-aiming shooter mechanics, close combat controls and unique character skills to defeat the opposing team. Games of Glory will be available with seamless cross-platform play between PlayStation 4 and PC Steam when it launches as a free-to-play gameplay experience in early 2017.
Players will select one of 15 unique Clones from five classes to take into battle, each wielding their own unique abilities and skills. During a match, players can equip and upgrade 50 unique non-character specific weapons which include shotguns, rifles, pistols, rocket launchers, and melee weapons. The team that implements the best combination of Clones, skills and weapons to counter the enemy’s strategy will come out on top.
“Games of Glory will add an incredibly fun and intense top-down team-based multiplayer experience to the PlayStation 4’s massive community of gamers,” said Anders Larsson, CEO of Lightbulb Crew. “We’ve aimed to bring the exhilarating competition of PC battle arena games as a shared experience on PlayStation 4 with controls and gameplay built from the ground up to keep the cross-platform matches even and well balanced.”
In Games of Glory, players battle in futuristic gladiator games to decide the future of the Synarchy, a powerful intergalactic empire where the games act the main source of entertainment for inhabitants. The innovative new Club feature is a fresh take on team building in competitive games allowing players to create a public or private club where friends and like-minded players across platforms can join, play together, and create and wear custom team skins to battle under the same banner.
