Redhill Games, a new studio based out of Helsinki, Finland, has announced its debut title at The Game Awards this evening, Nine to Five.
Currently in development for PC, Nine to Five is a tactical first-person shooter “set in a near-future where corporations rule everything and being a mercenary is just another job,” according to a press release sent out by the studio. This game “is all about the thrill of outsmarting your opponents. Each match pits three teams of three against each other across three intense rounds with changing objectives. Every round influences the next, ratcheting up the tension and forcing players to constantly adapt their strategy to win.”
“A lot of modern shooters are often too chaotic and random to really let you enjoy them. With Nine to Five, we’re challenging players with creative new mechanics to bring back that classic feeling of playing with friends, finding your role, and working together to outplay the competition,” said Redhill Games CEO Matias Myllyrinne.
An alpha test is dropping for Nine to Five in 2020. If you’re interested in signing up, you can visit the game’s website here.
