Paradox Interactive has announced The Showdown Effect, a 2.5D multiplayer action game inspired by 80’s and 90’s action movies "where champions from different eras of time fight to the death, for fun, for glory and for awesome." In the game players will battle for the upper hand using a variety of different weapons. The Showdown Effect will feature a multiplayer mode for up to 8 participants, multiple game modes, numerous heroes, and dynamic environments.
The focus of The Showdown Effect is in recreating the outrageous action found in classic action movies and taking them one step further. Players can pick weaponry from the silver screen's unparallelled arsenal, including shotguns, frying pans, lightsabers, assault rifles, grenades, katanas, gauss guns and anything in between. No explosion is too loud and no bullet dodge is implausible – The Showdown Effect is all about impaling your friend with nearby broomstick and dropping a “Stick around”-taunt as you jetpack heroically off to the next enemy.Head over to the page below for a trailer, screenshots, and more information.
