Herschel “Guy” Beahm IV, known to many as Dr. Unfilial, helped establish an “AAA game studio” with former Call of Duty and Halo developers in December of last year. Dubbed Midnight Society, the studio’s first project is expected to be a multiplayer shooter. More details about it have been announced, including information that it is a PvPvE exploit shooter.
Now, Midnight Society’s first game has a name – Deadrop – and gameplay footage. This game comes from players who took a (very) early approach to the title, so it’s not a demo or vertical play but more of a proof of concept. Check it out for yourself in the tweets below from Okami Games.
As you can see, the gameplay as it is today consists of a shooting range with a single weapon. You can also get a glimpse of the design of the world, and it looks like cybermedicine. Only time will tell what the final product will look like, as all signs point to this game being years away from being released.
To say the least, the reception to the gameplay is less than great. It won’t help Beahm tweeted“I can take screenshots right now… blows away everything from [Call of Duty] engine” back in June because this game doesn’t seem like Call of Duty’s image. Maybe it will come someday, but that remains to be seen.
