Mothergunship Announced for PS4, Lets You Craft Outrageous Guns

February 15, 2017Written by Alex Co

Liked DOOM’s gameplay? If so, you might be in for a treat! Terrible Posture Games (Tower of Guns) in partnership with Grip Digital, have announced Mothergunship, a “bullet-hell” first-person hybrid that looks to inject some adrenaline to your standard FPS.

Watch the announcement trailer above to see why the term bullet-hell seems apt for Mothergunship. Oh, and you can craft guns! Not in the same way like in RPGs where you need to find materials or recipes. In Mothergunship, players will be able to create new armaments of destruction by picking up barrels, splitters and other parts and assemble ’em in any way they like, with the stats that they prefer.

MOTHERGUNSHIP mixes bullet-hell intensity with the shooting, customization, and traversal of the first-person genre. Fight your way through the alien fleets, facing randomized enemy and level mayhem as you clear rooms and take out some of the biggest bosses seen in the FPS genre.

Fight – Face off against overwhelming odds in brutal, non-stop combat where thinking on your feet is the only way to survive. Dodge hundreds of bullets with unique FPS/Bullet-hell hybrid gameplay. Each ship hosts hordes of alien machines, deadly traps, and intimidating bosses, all set on preventing you from saving humanity. Go get ‘em.

Craft – To take down the MOTHERGUNSHIP, you’ll need your very own personalized arsenal of destruction. Luckily, in MOTHERGUNSHIP you can create the gun of your dreams with one of the most modular gun-crafting systems ever seen in a video game. Want to have twelve-barrel gun that shoots homing rockets? Or do you prefer a lightning shotgun? And what gun wouldn’t look better with a fish tank affixed to the top?  Go for it! The design of your destructive arsenal is in your hands.

Resist – Join the ranks of the global resistance movement and take back Earth together with your friends. Fight together with a friend in a full CO-OP experience, or participate with the community while you work together to cut through the alien fleet and reach that ultimate goal – bringing down the MOTHERGUNSHIP.

While there’s no release date announced just yet for Mothergunship, it’s been confirmed to shoot its way out on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

FPS games are a dime a dozen these days, but I admit, Mothergunship looks quite interesting due to its gun crafting emphasis and fast-paced gameplay. Once we know more details, we’ll let you know.
