Amid faster-paced shooters like Call of Duty, Red Hill Games has unveiled a strategic, focused FPS called Nine to Five. The game’s unusual trailer at The Game Awards started with furry, cartoony animals with assault rifles before switching off a screen to mercenaries who were a bit confused too.
“It’s set in a world where corporations rule everything, and being a mercenary is just another job,” said CEO Matias Myllyrinne. “Now a lot of modern shooters can be a little chaotic, and that’s kinda what makes Nine to Five special. We really put a lot of focus on the strategic gameplay of the team and playing together, and you know, making your changes and the tactics from round to round.”
The game will feature three teams of three people competing in three rounds in various objectives. How each mission is completed can change what happens later in the match. It is aiming to be quick while having players outsmart one another rather than killing everyone against you.
