Outpost Zero Announced

Publisher tinyBuild announces Outpost Zero, a multiplayer survival first-person shooter from Symmetric Games. Word is: "Imagine playing Starcraft as a multiplayer Survival FPS. You land on a new planet, gather resources, build a base -- and get onto building an army of AI bots to help you in your quest. Then you take this army to your neighbor's base, and start a war." The announcement trailer shows this off, including a look at alpha gameplay, and they say that they are moving towards a public alpha, promising access to all who sign up on the Outpost Zero website. Here's word on what to expect:

About Outpost Zero
A Sci-Fi First Person Shooter with Base Building, Resource Management, and elements of Survival. You play as an AI Overseer sent from Earth entrusted with the future of humankind, and tasked with establishing a habitat that can sustain human life on a mysterious alien world.​

COMBAT
At its core, Outpost Zero is a deep sandbox FPS. Fight against a variety of native alien creatures, and defend your base against roving bands of pirates and enemy raiders. Attack enemy strongholds to destroy their operations and loot their resources. The game will feature scaling combat with upgradeable weapons and armor, and group combat with AI squad mates to lead into battle against enemy bases.

BASE-BUILDING
This hostile planet can become a thriving colony with a fully functioning society of AI robots, under your direction.

Create a base for safe refuge and infrastructure to keep your AI outfitted, healthy, and happy. Make homes for your colonists, provide them with entertainment, and build defenses to keep out invaders.

AI COLONISTS
