GTFO Demo at Gamescom 2018
A demo of Left 4 Dead inspired coop-shooter was brought to Gamescom 2018, showing a mission playthrough
GTFO is a team-based horde shooter announced last year, with added emphasis on the team aspect.
Founded by some of the developers behind Payday 2 and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, 10 Chambers Collective recently brought a demo of their game to Gamescom. GTFO attempts to envoke gameplay similar to Left 4 Dead, with hordes of aliens assaulting your team of four. In game, you're allowed to coordinate weapon loadouts as well as equipment. Machine guns and shotguns are present, but so are more unique choices like the glue gun, which can slow enemies or brace a door against a monster swarm.
GTFO's aliens are a much more formidable foe than the zombies of Left 4 Dead. Aliens detect light and sound but once they get near, players can be downed in two or three hits. There's an enemy variant known as the ‘’Scout’’ that players will no doubt come to loathe. Once this enemy sees you, it emits a call for others to zero in on your position.
The horror roots of Left 4 Dead have been cranked up in this title as well. Fog coats the underground passages and there's very little light to speak of. The game keeps you on your toes by resetting enemy locations after every death. GTFO definitely doesn't look to be for players weak of heart.
GTFO has no concrete release date but is slated to release exclusively on PC later this year.
