'Off The Grid' Is A Next-Gen Battle Royale By District 9 Director Neill Blomkamp - Trailer

Dive into the heat of a covert corporate war in Off The Grid, a cyberpunk Battle Royale 2.0 multiplayer shooter where you shape the story and the gameplay.

Set within a dystopian future, the cyberpunk styled shooter plans to evolve the genre through strong emphasis on narrative progression, led by Chief Visionary Officer Neill Blomkamp (who teamed up with Gunzilla last year) and Script Writer Richard K. Morgan. In addition, industry veteran Olivier Henriot (Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed) assumes the role of Executive Narrative Director, ensuring a wealth of top-tier talent to bring the world of Off The Grid to life.

A Battle Royale like no other, in Off The Grid, 150 players fight each other in PvP (Player Vs Player) skirmishes, as well as PvE (Player Vs Environment) storyline missions using the same map inhabited by other players in real time. Players have the freedom to control how the hard-boiled story unfolds, with each decision made directly impacting everyone’s gameplay. Core to the experience and deep narrative structure is the unique way in which players can craft, customize, and trade their in-game items with each other. In Off The Grid, the lines between hero and villain become blurred as players fight to survive the covert corporate battles of the future.

Commenting on Off The Grid, Neill Blomkamp, CVO said, “With OTG, our ambition is not only to create the Battle Royale 2.0 by adding deep player progression, but to build an evolving world designed to take on a life of its own, changing in unexpected ways each time a player rejoins the game. With an innovative approach to the Battle Royale core session flow and a deep narrative experience, we add purpose to each element of the game, allowing players to revisit the Off The Grid world repeatedly where there is always something new to find and explore, and for us to expand upon.”

Further information on Off The Grid will be announced in the coming months.

Off The Grid is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC in 2023.
