Listings for a brand new co-op FPS called Arcadegeddon have been spotted on the Taiwanese and Korean ratings board websites. The game will be developed by Friday the 13th: The Game and Predator: Hunting Grounds developer IllFonic, but we don't know much about it yet.
What do we know about Arcadegeddon?
These listings were originally spotted by gaming platform Gematsu. The Korean ratings listing (for which we're using machine translation) describes the game as "cyberpunk" and rates it at 15 thanks to the "realistic expression of violence". The Taiwanese listing, for which we sadly don't have a link, goes into a little more detail. You play as Gilly, the owner of a local arcade, who's trying to save his business from a megacorporation. Said corp hacks one of his games and injects it with a virus, leading Gilly to take matters into his own hands and save his game, and his arcade, from his opponents. Here's a snap of said listing courtesy of Gematsu.
The listing, which rates the game for PlayStation 5 (and appears to give it a 12 classification), also teases a little of Arcadegeddon's gameplay. You'll be able to "explore multiple biomes", engage in minigames, battle enemies, and open chests for loot, it seems. Arcadegeddon will offer a mixture of PvE and PvP gameplay and will accommodate "all different speeds of play". Looks like it'll be one to watch for fans of IllFonic's trademark asymmetrical multiplayer games.
What do we know about Arcadegeddon developer IllFonic?
IllFonic is a Colorado-based developer which counts legendary R&B musician Raphael Saadiq among its founders. While its first title was 2012's Nexuiz, the studio rose to prominence with 2017's Friday the 13th: The Game, an asymmetrical survival horror multiplayer experience pitting several survivors against series antagonist Jason Voorhees. IllFonic's next game, Predator: Hunting Grounds, cast players as operatives battling against a single Predator in order to complete various objectives.
We don't have any more details about Arcadegeddon yet, so stand by for more information about this rather intriguing-seeming project. Until then, you can grab Friday the 13th: The Game on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Predator: Hunting Grounds is only available on PS4 and PC, but you can, of course, play both games on next-gen platforms via backwards compatibility.
