V1 Interactive runs down everything you need to know about its upcoming sci-fi shooter
Hey! We are V1 Interactive, a small studio that is currently developing Disintegration, a sci-fi FPS which features 5v5 multiplayer that will test both your shooter and your tactical skills. We’ve been working non-stop for the last few months for this moment to finally arrive: we are super excited to announce Disintegration’s Technical Beta.
For those who aren’t familiar with it, Disintegration is a sci-fi FPS in which you pilot a hovering, weaponized vehicle called a gravcycle, while you tactically command your squad around the battlefield.
Set on Earth in a not-so-distant future where humanity’s last chance of survival is to replace their bodies with robotic armatures, the single-player campaign focuses on Romer Shoal’s story and his fight against the Rayonne to regain his humanity.
Although we have been putting a lot of work into the campaign, we’ve also been working hard to ensure Disintegration’s multiplayer is fast, frenetic and a lot of fun.
The multiplayer game pits you against other players in up to 5v5 matches with you and your individual squads on the ground. The unique game modes, blending aerial combat and squad commands across several different modes and maps, are sure to test not only your shooter skills, but also your tactical approach on the battlefield.
We let players at Pax West get hands-on with the game, but the time has come to put Disintegration’s multiplayer into a real stress test: that’s why we are running our Technical Beta at the end of January.
Disintegration’s Technical Beta will include two maps and two different modes. You can also choose between seven different crews each with their own weapons, abilities, and role in combat.
We are overwhelmed with all the support and encouraging words we have received so far from the community, but now we need to ask a favour to all of you: join the Technical Beta, coordinate with your team, command your units, and most importantly, have fun!
You may see bugs, frame rate issues, or other odd behaviours. That’s what we’re looking to resolve. Play it, test it out in every way possible, then give us your honest feedback.
Your feedback is key for us to try and make Disintegration the best that it can be.
Beta Tips & Tricks
- Pay attention to the Mode and choose an appropriate Crew. Want to hold an area on a Control Zone? Choose King’s Guard or The Side Shows, as they’re well-suited for holding areas. Want to try and grab lightly defended or uncontested Zones? Try a Neon Dreams, Lost Ronin, or The Business for their speed.
- The units are capable of substantial damage and eliminating them before getting close to and engaging an enemy gravcycle usually means the difference between winning and losing. This is particularly true for some of the short-range crews, such as Neon Dreams, The Business, and The Warhedz.
- Don’t be afraid to get aggressive on Zone Control. While holding Zones will provide slow and steady points, taking a Zone gives an additional bonus as soon as a Zone is captured.
- When Attacking on Retrieval, anything you can do to offset the incoming damage against your Core carriers will help. Tech Noir and King’s Guard can provide needed repairs, but a heavy Warhedz getting down low and drawing fire can also be effective to escort the Core carrying unit.
- Slow Fields are incredibly effective when deployed in choke points around the maps. They don’t deal damage, but they make hitting targets with slower projectiles, such as Tri-Nades, a Warhead, or Ion Disruptors, much more effective.
- When Defending on Retrieval, keep an eye on dropped Cores, even if they’ve started their self-destruct countdown. Attackers can still pick them up and slow the countdown, which can give them enough time to score. Just don’t be close enough to get caught in the self-destruct explosion.
