Gunscape Blends First-Person Shooting & World-Building on PS4 in 2016

July 16, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Gunscape, a “first-person shooter and world-building hybrid” from Blowfish Studios, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Wii U in Q1 2016, following a September 9 release on Xbox One, PC/Mac/Linux.

Inspired by classic first-person shooters from the 90s and early 2000s, Gunscape allows you to create and share your own levels, while also playing maps created by others. Using the toolkit, you can create single-player and co-op campaigns or competitive multiplayer arenas.

In addition to online or local split-screen multiplayer for up to four players on PS4 and up to eight players on PC/Xbox One, Gunscape allows console and PC owners to share creations:

Unlike most first-person shooter world-building hybrids which require gamers to send levels to one another directly, Gunscape’s easy-to-use interface allows players to upload levels they create to the game’s servers, where they can be downloaded by everyone. Gunscape is the world’s first hybrid of these two genres that allows console and PC owners to share the same stages.

Blowfish Studios CEO Benjamin Lee said:

We are all hardcore gamers who are passionate about first-person shooters and world-building, but feel other attempts to blend the genres have come up short. Gunscape provides an easy to use toolkit for world-building that gamers will instantly recognize, with weapons, enemies and level design elements that will remind players of their favorite first-person shooter franchises.

Gunscape is currently available through Steam Early Access.
