Project Genesis closed playtest has been announced by 8 Circuit Studios. This upcoming game seeks to mash up first-person shooter action with fantastic space battles in a hybrid style of game that we don't really get to see too much of these days.

If you like to fly spaceships and shoot from the hip, you might want to get in on the upcoming Project Genesis closed playtest. A press release from the developers states that this upcoming event will give a limited number of lucky players the opportunity to see this game firsthand in its pre-production phase. Check out the Become A Test Pilot trailer to get a feel for what Project Genesis is all about:

Essentially, Project Genesis operates on two distinct systems. Smaller spaceships will deftly maneuver and fire off shots at one another, all the while dwarfed by massive capital-class starships. If you play things right, you'll be able to board the enemy's capital ships and transition to first-person shooter gameplay where you can try to cause as much damage as possible or take control of the ship for yourself. It kind of gives off Star Wars Battlefront II vibes. No, the good one.

 

At the moment, the Project Genesis closed playtest will only be open to a limited amount of players. Those who sign up at the game's official website will get a chance to get in on this first round of testing. Don't worry if you don't make it, though—you'll be kept on a list for future tests and might get a chance to check out the game then!

If this sounds like your kind of jam, pop on over to their website and sign up for the Project Genesis closed playtest. There's a limited number of spots available, so get right on it! The first round of playtests are set to take place on February 1, 2019.

What do you think of the Project Genesis closed playtest? Does this seem like the kind of game you'd like to play? What other games of this style do you enjoy? Let us know in the comments below!
