A new ‘rogue-looter shooter’ about the machine betrayal of humanity is going into open beta soon

If there’s one thing we’ve learned through the consumption of popular media, it’s that sooner or later, the machines are going to rise up and kick our asses. For those who haven’t yet picked up on that message, here’s another opportunity: Synced (opens in new tab)an upcoming third-person roguelite looter-shooter that’s going into open beta testing in December.

Synced is set in humanity’s near future, following an event called the Collapse, which saw the nanomachines we’d come to rely on for the day-to-day operation of our civilization decide that they could do better as a solo act. Thus, they began propagating themselves by consuming humans—not really sure how that would work, but this is a videogame, not science class—and ultimately morphed into deadly creatures known as Nanos. Now it falls to you and your pals to face them down as Runners: Fortune-seekers who make runs through the dangerous region known as the Meridian in search of a substance called “nano-energy.”
