The director of District 9 signs the universe of an intriguing Battle Royale under Unreal Engine 5

If we had been told one day that Neill Blomkamp, ​​the director of the films District 9 , Elysium or even Chappie would be associated with a video game project, we would probably have pouted. The proof is that everything happens.

Gunzilla Games, a rather discreet studio founded in 2020 between Los Angeles, Kiev and Frankfurt, unveils the first images of Off The Grid , a new kind of Battle Royale.

The author of Altered Carbon to the screenplay

Tired of multiplayer games deprived of their narrative component, Gunzilla Games is considering a competitive game that does not deny its scenario or its history.

The (very) short teaser published today by the studio teaches us nothing or almost nothing, apart from illustrating the cyberpunk atmosphere in which Off The Grid will be immersed . Moreover, Gunzilla specifies that his game will use the Unreal Engine 5 . Enough to imagine cutting-edge graphics when the game is released on PC , PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

In his note of intent published on his blog, Gunzilla explains that Off The Grid will offer clashes to 150 players, both in PvP and PvE in scripted missions.

But what puts even more stars in our eyes are the names associated with the project. As we said, the South African director Neill Blomkamp will officiate as Chief Visionary Officer (yum the start-up nation). But we can also discover a screenplay by Richard Morgan, the author of the Altered Carbon books .

One last name completes the triumvirate: that of Olivier Henriot, defector from Ubisoft, who worked as a narrative designer on several Assassin's Creed or Far Cry games .

Off The Grid does not yet have a release date, but the studio gives us an appointment in 2023 to learn more.
