Developer 5th Cell, who are known for Scribblenauts
, is bringing some experimental heat to the Xbox LIVE Summer of Arcade with their jetpack-fueled, third person shooter, Hybrid
. This 60fps, global hotzone multiplayer shooter allows for full character customization, faction-based, team-focused gameplay, and what is shaping up to be some pretty intense combat. The trailer below will dive deeper into what fans can expect from 5th Cell's shooter and the war that is raging over the highly sought after dark matter.
Hybrid will also feature microtransactions. Microtransactions are usually found within free-to-play games, in which the gamer can either play for an extended period of time and unlock boosts or armor, or with microtransactions you can purchase XP boosts, weapons, perks and so forth directly from the in-game menu immediately. As you progress throughout the game, you will earn credits to spend on upgrades and loadouts, however you will also have the option to purchase credit packages for a certain fee and apply the content right away to your character. Other XBLA games that have used microtransactions before are Crimson Alliance
and Gotham City Impostors
Get ready to strap on a jetpack and battle through the hotzones, as Hybrid
is set to release on August 8th for 1200 MSP from the Xbox LIVE Arcade.
