Combat Champions Announced

C77 Entertainment announces Combat Champions, a first-person shooter previously known by the codename Project Slingshot. This carries a broad 2024 release window, but the game's Steam Listing has a "Request Access" button for private alpha testing that's currently underway. The announcement stresses the development team's bona fides: "C77 Entertainment is a new game studio developing big action experiences for PC and consoles. C77 is led by Mattias Kylén and Kenny Magnusson; two Swedes with a long history in the industry. Together they've worked on several award-winning AAA titles, including leadership roles on franchise development teams such as Halo, Battlefield, and Mercenaries." Check out the announcement trailer for a look at the game's reality TV setting, and read on for more:
The first game from C77 Entertainment, 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.

Be the star of the show
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.

Over-the-top action
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.

Accessible Gameplay
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.
