Niche Spotlight – Aftercharge

This is Niche Spotlight. In this column, we regularly introduce new games to our fans, so please leave feedback and let us know if there’s a game you want us to cover!

Today’s Spotlight is Aftercharge, a brand new 3v3 competitive multiplayer game by Chainsawesome Games.

Aftercharge involves quick, objective-based skirmishes between two asymmetrical teams. One team is a group of invisible robots trying to sabotage a series of energy extractors. The other team is a heavily armed squad of invincible guards that must use teamwork and gadgets to hunt down the robots and protect the extractors. You can check out the launch trailer above.

Aftercharge is available on Windows PC (via Steam) and Xbox One for $19.99. The game will be launching on Switch at some point in the near future, and supports cross-play online multiplayer.

Here’s a rundown on the game:


Aftercharge is a 3 vs 3 competitive game pitting invisible robots against an invincible security squad in high-octane tactical skirmishes. Six glowing structures called extractor are at the center of the gameplay and serve as the objective for both teams. The robots have to coordinate their attacks, create distractions and sneak around to destroy them. The enforcers on the other hand have to cover as much ground as possible and use their abilities wisely to spot the attackers and stop them before they can destroy all of the extractors.

Key Features:

  • Unique blend of fresh mechanics – An invisible team fighting an invincible team, reviving allies instantly with no limit and zero cooldown on abilities are only a few mechanics that make Aftercharge a shooter you’ve never played before.
  • Bite-size competitive matches – The teams are small, the maps are small, the rounds are short, the action is always within sight and it never stops.
  • Asymmetrical characters – Choose from a different character pool on each side with widely different abilities and roles to vary your team’s strategy.
  • Online multiplayer and matchmaking – Team up with players anywhere around the world and face-off against opponents of similar skill level.
