Ubisoft Announces New Online FPS “Atomega” From Grow Home Studio

Ubisoft Reflections, the folks beind Grow Home and its sequel Grow Up, has announced an entirely new game: Atomega.

The new game is an online multiplayer first-person shooter built with “a creatively experimental mindset.” Featured above, you can view the game’s debut trailer.

A worldwide PC (via Steam) release is set for September 19th, for $9.99. Here are the first screenshots:

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Ubisoft:


Grow, fight, collect and evade in the last cosmic arena at the very end of time. Acquire MASS to evolve your EXOFORM from the nimble ATOM to the godlike OMEGA and compete for fun and dominance in a fast-paced, multiplayer shooter. ATOMEGA™ !

It is the very end of time. Reality dissolves like cotton candy in a puddle and all that exists are EXOFORMS, super advanced post-biological lifeforms; masters of matter and energy and the last, distant relative to man and machine. As the laws of physics slowly repeal the EXOFORMS fight for fun and dominance, replaying the final moments of the universe over and over in the last arena that will ever exist. ATOMEGA™ !

Key Features:

  • 1st person retro-arena shooter. FIGHT LIKE IT’S THE END OF TIME!
  • A single arena on the brink of destruction. MASTER YOUR LAST MOMENTS!
  • Compete online with up to 8 players. COMPETE FOR GLORY!
  • Collect Mass to evolve through 7 EXOFORMs from nimble ATOM to godlike OMEGA each with different strengths, weaknesses and tactical advantages. BIGGER IS BETTER!
  • Sustain OMEGA form to dominate the arena. YOU ARE LIKE UNTO A GOD!
  • Collect 10 HACKS to temporally boost your abilities. WHAT IS EVEN HAPPENING!

    This looks really fun.I hope the fact it’s a priced title won’t hurt in in the long run.

    There’s not a lot to go by so far, but from what I’ve seen, I don’t really see how balanced this is. Like, once you’ve reached the higher levels, what can the lower level players do to combat against them? Do those tiny dinosaurs have a fraction of a chance against that Omega god form?

    Also, if this is being published by Ubisoft, then…. yep. It’s got Uplay.

  • Fandangle

    It’s ubisoft. If the game isn’t reasonably priced it’ll be 5 bucks a year after release and it will have microtransactions out the ass.

  • PenguinPlayer

    Fun fact: Grow Home and Grow Up, the previous games from Ubisoft Reflections, do not in fact have Uplay at all. It’s the reason I gave them at shot a all, because screw Uplay.

  • PenguinPlayer

    I liked Grow Home and I liked Grow Up, I’m willing to give this a shot but I will wait until I see actual people playing the game, it looks like it could easily be an unbalanced mess.

    These devs are the only guys at Ubi that are actually trying to innovate something…

    Interesting.

    Grand Theft knack.

    I got kinda a cubivore vibe from the first part of it.

    … That was an underrated Gem and needs to be put on the Virtual Console.

  • Fandangle

    I’m incredibly positive for developers I like. I can trust ones like retro, platinum, falcom, spike-chunsoft, monolithsoft, and others to deliver great games. Then there is others like Marvelous and nintendo’s internal japanese devs that I’m at least willing to give a chance. All I’ve got out of ubisoft is a bunch of buggy messes and insults from the developers. They’re probably third place in my least favorite developer or publisher just because the sheer amount of overhyped trash they put out.

    Knowing which developers make great games and which make polished turds can save you a lot of money.

  • Madbrainbox

    It’s 9,99$.I don’t think they force microtransactions on their smaller games.

  • Fandangle

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they did.
