Boundary is a multiplayer tactical space-based shooter puts players in the role of a heavily armed astronaut in space engaging in fierce zero gravity firefights and executing low-gravity operations on orbiting space installations against enemy astronauts and other entities.

Space has provided a new frontier for man to explore and populate as the Earth reaches capacity and natural resources dwindle. The invention of space-elevators make getting up to orbiting facilities both affordable and convenient in this not-too-distant future. Along with this new exploration and life in space, a new breed of scum and villainy emerges as governments, mercenaries, pirates and outlaws are hell bent on plundering the universe of valuable goods to sell on the black market or keep for themselves.

A new breed of criminal enterprise means a new breed of galactic enforcement is required, so specially trained tactical astronauts take the fight to the harsh extremes of space in order to intercept hijackers and criminals with lethal force in interdiction missions.

In Boundary, players will become Astroperators fighting intense 5v5 matches in the zero-gravity of space. Navigating flying debris in the vast expanse of space and detecting enemy assaults from all angles await players in Boundary. At launch, Boundary will include four multiplayer modes including Team Deathmatch, Facility capture, Orbital purge, Skirmish. As an FPS game, the fast and agile shooter will focus on 5v5 and 3v3 matches where fierce zero gravity firefights will take place in 8 different multiplayer maps.

Skystone Games and developer Studio Surgical Scalpels are ecstatic to announce that Boundary has launched on Steam Early Access and will remain so for six to twelve months, but this may change due to feedback and suggestions from our community.

Boundary Early Access has the following completed features:

  • A fully presented 6-DOF zero-gravity experience
  • Full controller and mouse+keyboard support that's constantly improving
  • A complete progression system with 70 levels for players to go through
  • Highly detailed maps (7+) and multiple classic game modes
  • Daily, weekly, and monthly challenges for players to participate in
  • User Feedback and bug reporting systems

  • Party and voice chat systems to allow for team coordination and playing with friends

"The full version of Boundary will contain the following key features that couldn't be implemented in time for Early Access: Battlepass and Store systems, Ranked server matchmaking, AI/Bot implementation. We are also targeting to get cross-platform play fully functioning. There will also be more minor features, bug fixing, user experience improvements, and more!"

With a whole host of customization options for players to choose from, Boundary aims to provide a tailor made approach to loadouts, space suits and tactical space warfare. Weapons range from machine pistols to converted assault rifles and more powerful sniper rifles, all of which utilize a modular upgrade system to mix and match at the player’s preference. Players can also customize individual weapons using a huge range of available components including optical sights, muzzles, stocks, barrels and foregrips.

Players will have six classes to choose from in Boundary and a wide range of fully customizable space weaponry. Players will have full tactical control over their weapon magazines in Boundary, being able to utilize different types of ammunition and create customized magazine configurations. Alternating armor penetrating rounds and electromagnetic pulse rounds, to pierce through enemy space suits and scramble their equipment is just one of many lethal combinations Astroperators can create.

Helping players maneuver through space will be their EMU suit. Players can modify EMU suits by adding offensive measures and defensive weapons as well as choosing between light, medium, and heavy packs. From their class to weapons, ammunition and EMUs players will be able to create tailor-made loadouts in Boundary for ultimate control of their tactics. Equipped with external pylons, these mobility units can attach a variety of ordinance in the form of radar guided rockets, EMP grenades and defensive countermeasures.

Ammunition types also have a tactical role to play in Boundary, and players can configure a mixture of ammunition types in their weapons. Lethality can be increased by mixing armor piercing rounds with explosive rounds and EMP rounds, causing catastrophic damage and affecting an enemy’s ability to respond.

Key Features:

  • Intense zero-gravity FPS combat.
  • Multiple game modes Team Deathmatch, Facility capture, Orbital purge, Skirmish.
  • Varied and realistic-inspired maps including the solar farm, orbital fuel station, circular complex, a spacecraft debris field, and more.
