Private Division and V1 Interactive have announced that Disintegration, the debut title from the 30-person independent studio founded by Marcus Lehto, the co-creator of Halo.
Disintegration is a sci-fi, first-person shooter that blends real-time tactical elements to create an entirely new experience. Set in a world ripped apart by famine, scarce resources, and the planet on the brink of destruction, humanity has developed a process to survive its harsh reality known as Integration, in which a human brain is transferred to a robotic armature. From the ensuing chaos, an aggressive, militaristic legion, known as the Rayonne, gain control and begins to impose the once optional process of Integration onto the rest of humanity to consolidate their power.
Players command Romer Shoal, an incredibly-skilled Gravcycle pilot, who leads a small band of outlaws to fight back against an overwhelming Rayonne force. Over the course of a thrilling single-player campaign, players will control a Gravcycle loaded with weaponry, leading Romer and his team across a series of diverse missions packed with action, explosions, and plot twists, to beat back the Rayonne forces and give the last vestiges of humanity hope to prevail.
“I’ve always been a gameplay-driven storyteller, and with Disintegration, I wanted to create a compelling narrative built around mechanics that haven’t been done before,” said Marcus Lehto, President and Game Director at V1 Interactive. “It’s in my DNA to create memorable characters and rich worlds that go beyond a standard FPS experience. I’m so excited that players get to be a part of it soon.”
In addition to the full single-player campaign, Disintegration features frenetic PVP multiplayer where pilots and their crews compete in three game modes and six distinct maps. Players can select from nine highly-stylized “Crews” which lend themselves to different playstyles.
“The gameplay mechanics and exciting lore from the campaign are cranked up a few notches in Disintegration’s competitive multiplayer, and it’s an absolute blast,” said Kari Toyama, Lead Producer at Private Division. “The team at V1 Interactive are putting a ton of fun and personality into the multiplayer through the different Crews, each of which have their own look and approach to combat.”
Multiplayer provides a host of cosmetic customizations that can be purchased or earned in-game, including pilot and crew skins, cosmetic Gravcycle customizations, and a variety of banners. In addition to the multiplayer content at release, the team at V1 will be supporting the game post-launch with seasonal content drops.
Disintegration will release digitally on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X on June 16, 2020.
Players who pre-order the game will receive bonus cosmetic digital content for multiplayer gameplay, including a unique Lost Ronin Midnight crew skin, Flex emote, Disintegration Medal Gravcycle attachment, and platform-exclusive animated player banners. Pre-orders for Disintegration are available now for Xbox One and PC via Steam.
