Publisher Level Infinite and developer NExT Studios today announced an Open Beta for the upcoming 3rd person shooter SYNCED. Beginning December 10th, 2022, and running until January 15th, 2023, the Open Beta introduces players to the game’s PvE and co-op gameplay for the first time. The Beta will be available for PC players to download for free via Steam or client download from the SYNCED website.
SYNCED is a rogue-looter shooter set in the near future of our world, where nanotechnology has become the backbone of civilization. In the wake of a cataclysm known as the Collapse, the nanomachines have turned against their creators, consuming humans to propagate themselves and transforming into deadly Nanos. In this apocalypse, players take on the role of a Runner, brave fortune-seekers who scour the Meridian for the valuable nano-energy substance known as Nerva. Players will team up in squads of three to encounter intense PvE and PvP battles
SYNCED delivers a totally new take on the third-person looter-shooter gameplay by giving players the ability to synchronize with deadly Nanos, effectively turning foe into a friend. With different Nano classes to sync with – Crusher, Seer, Guardian, and Suppressor – combined with the individual loadout and unique skill each Runner brings, this allows for a broad variety of combinations and tactical approaches.
Similar to classic looter shooters, Runners can loot resources in PvE and PvP matches to build up their character, while also unlocking powerful weapons and mods. Consequently, each match plays out as a unique run – leaning into the “rogue-lite” influence and distinguishing SYNCED from its peers.
