Adam Skidmore, Senior Game Designer at Free Reign Entertainment, spoke about the game, saying:
“Shattered Skies earned praise from gamers during both closed alpha and open beta, and the community sees the game as a fresh addition to the genre by changing the way they look at open world survival shooter titles. Thanks to our experience making open world games, we’ve focused on the features that players want most and on making the game more dynamic so gamers can return to the action quickly.”
Shattered Skies is an open world looter shooter that pits users against alien monstrosities and other players in a no rules sandbox where people can choose to help others, or hunt them. After a comet crashed into the moon, its fragments rained upon a once peaceful valley surrounded by mountains and turned the world into chaos. Since that day a mysterious alien lifeform within the comet’s fragments began to thrive on Earth’s rich environment, changing the planet and bringing hellish monsters to the world. As one of the few remaining survivors, players will struggle to endure against an enemy unlike any humanity has faced before.
