Today the studio has released its launch trailer for the first-person shooter (FPS), combining cinematic footage with plenty of gameplay.
Created using the studio’s in-house 4A Engine – the developer is best known for its Metro franchise – ARKTIKA.1 is set in the beautiful but deadly frozen environments of the Russian tundra, after Earth has entered a new ice age.

You play a mercenary hired by Citadel Security, who must protect one of the last colonies in the wastelands of old Russia from violent raiders, marauders, and horrifying creatures. Using your mercenary skills and an arsenal of high-tech weaponry like the Electromagnetic Smart Pistol, plasma cannons and laser guns only you can protect the colonists from the horros that await.
ARKTIKA.1 is available for pre-order now with a discount of 10 percent currently available, reducing the price from $29.99 USD/£22.99 GBP to $26.99/£19.99. The title will be released on 10th October, 2017.
