During The Game Awards, 10 Chambers announced live on stage that GTFO was available at that very moment. This meant GTFO would be leaving early access and launching its version 1.0 as of December 9, 2021. The launch also includes a variety of changes and improvements. Key updates include the addition of AI teammates, improved graphics, and additional content in many aspects of the game including environments, dangers, tools, weapons, and challenges!
Below are the developer details for GTFO. Hopefully, this will inspire you to check out the newly released game.
“Your team of prisoners is dropped into the Rundown when a new Work Order is issued by the Warden, the mysterious entity holding you captive. The Rundown is a series of expeditions, each one taking you deeper into a decayed research facility called the Complex. You descend level by level, scavenging tools and resources that help you survive in a perilous network of tunnels where gruesome creatures lurk in every shadow. Complete all of the expeditions to fulfill the Work Order and clear the Rundown.”
“GTFO is designed for prisoner teams of four, putting cooperation at the core of the experience. Bots can fill your lineup if you’re short one or two players. They’ll follow you through expeditions, sneak when you sneak, collect resources, and fight alongside you. They’re a good fallback, but the level of communication and tactical combat in GTFO means it’s best to play with people.”
Game Design Director at 10 Chambers, Hjalmar Vikström,
“We have exhilarating Rundown drops planned for 2022, where we want to continue to challenge our players with the unexpected. With version 1.0, we are just starting to bend the limits of what GTFO can be, and I don’t want to spoil anything but play the game – you will understand what I mean. Our list of ideas for new horrors, puzzles, and tools is extensive, so I am genuinely excited for the coming years of GTFO.”
You can buy it now on Steam.
