Shooting games have become so popular that there are now multiple subgenres. First-person shooters, such as Call of Duty, hero shooters, such as Overwatch, and third-person shooters, such as the Gears of War series, are all available. However, a new game, Alterborn, will be released soon, as announced during the Future Game Show Spring Showcase 2022.
According to PlayStation’s YouTube account, Alterborn is “a unique blend of Soulslike, roguelike, looter shooter, and more.” That description sounds like a reference to a game like Borderlands. Regardless, Alterborn has released a reveal trailer, which you can watch below. Perhaps after you see the game in action, the focus will become clearer:
Alterborn’s trailer depicts a hooded figure strolling through an abandoned building covered in pulsating crimson vein-like roots. Further within, the hooded character discovers a tree that appears to be the original site of the roots, and they are assaulted by a monster as they prepare to plunder it.
