Free Reign Entertainment Reveals Shattered Skies

First in a Triad of Games Set in the Rise of the Badlands Game World
to Release into Closed Alpha This Month

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Independent video game publisher Free
Reign Entertainment
today announced Shattered Skies, a
new open world survival looter shooter game that has players battle
mutated alien monstrosities as well as each other in a massive world
that spans mountains, valleys, cities and towns. Releasing into closed
alpha by the end of March, Shattered Skies will be
available for a single, one-time purchase without microtransactions,
season passes or paid expansions, with all content to be unlocked solely
by playing the game and depending on your skills. Those interested in
battling Shattered Skies’ hellish monsters prior to the
summer open beta release can pre-order the game for a deep discount at shatteredskies.freereign.net
to gain access to the closed beta. Shattered Skies is
slated for full release before the end of the year.

Shattered Skies is an open world survival looter shooter
that pits players against alien monstrosities and other players in a no
rules sandbox where people can choose to help others, or hunt them.
After a comet crashed into the once quiet mountain getaway, a mysterious
alien lifeform within the comet’s fragments began to thrive on Earth’s
rich environment, changing the planet and mutating humans into hellish
monsters. As one of the few remaining survivors, players will struggle
to endure against an enemy unlike any humanity has faced before. Shattered
Skies
is the first in a triad of games to be set in the Rise
of the Bandlands
game world. Each in the series of games is
being created to appeal to a slightly different audience, with many of
the unique collectible cosmetic items shared between the games.

Shattered Skies is a fresh addition to the survival
horror genre and finally solves some of the most pressing issues that
plague survival shooter communities,” said Adam Skidmore, Senior Game
Designer at Free Reign Entertainment. “Thanks to our experience making
open world titles, we’ve added into Shattered Skies an
industry-leading anticheat system and made it easier than ever to play
with friends, as well as experience end game content for high level
characters.”

In Shattered Skies there is no permadeath though it
features a harsh item drop rule set that causes the contents of the
backpack to become lootable by other players in the event of an untimely
demise. The game also contains a bevy of features including:

  • Player vs. player (PVP) and player vs. environment (PVE) play
  • First-person and third-person playstyle
  • A full reputation system that allows players to role play as a good or
    bad guy
  • Hundreds of unique lootable weapons, consumables, fortifications,
    cosmetics and so
  • Secure buildings with barricades, traps and other fortifications to
    keep players and aliens at bay
  • Collect, save and trade rare items
  • Fully customizable character cosmetics, including headwear, facewear,
    body, pants and shoes
