New Video Touts Developer Improvements for Co-op Horror Shooter ‘Ripout’ [Watch]


2023 isn’t too far away, and for Ripout fans, that means the game is that much closer to release. As a holiday treat, developer Pet Project Games and 3D Realms have unveiled a new gameplay trailer for Ripout, showing off the improvements the studio has been implementing ahead of the game’s launch on PC via Steam, PlayStation 5, and the Xbox Series.

In case you need reminding, Ripout (which was part of Steam Next Fest earlier this year) is a co-op sci-fi horror FPS with customisable biotech weapon combat that features a Living Pet Weapon (LPW), a living gun that is able to absorb advanced tech from downed mutants, including shield, plasma and teleportation biotech upgrades.

And for you body horror types, Ripout also features a unique system that sees enemies able to reconfigure their bodies and assimilate other enemies to create horrific masses of threatening biological and technological material. You’ll have to deal with these ever evolving threats with your co-op partners in procedurally-generated levels that offer up a variety of missions and objectives to cater to different playstyles.

“We’re excited to be able to show players how we’ve been finessing and improving on Ripout ahead of its release in 2023 on PC, PlayStation and Xbox,” said Goran Rajsic, lead game designer at Pet Project Games. “From day one our goal has been to offer up a fresh twist on the action horror genre. Epic Games could see that when we received an Epic Megagrant and we think the elements of procedural generation, co-op multiplayer and our awesome biotech weapons deliver an innovative experience that does indeed set Ripout apart from the crowd.”

Set in the 22nd Century, humanity has reached beyond Earth to conquer the solar system. An interplanetary revolution for humanity began, but it would quickly turn disastrous. This new expansion was greeted with new threats, as Alien forces emerged and threatened this new golden age. Desperate to find a way to keep them at bay, humanity developed a cell that regenerated soldiers’ tissue at superhuman speeds. But the cell turned sentient, causing those soldiers to transform into gruesome and bloodthirsty mutants. With humanity’s saviour now fast becoming their downfall, soldiers are deployed using the latest in biotech weaponry to deal with the mutants that have overtaken its fleet of battleships, turning them into derelict and deadly graveyards.
