Independent developer, Surgical Scalpels has announced that its near-future multiplayer shooter, Boundary will be heading to PlayStation 4 and PC courtesy of its new publisher deal with Huya.
With a publisher now backing the remaining development and launch of the title the game will be looking to line up a Q1 2020 release date on both PS4 and PC. Previously revealed at ChinaJoy in Shanghai in 2016, Boundary is the first of the China Hero Project titles to benefit from the program to help fund and bring Chinese games to the global market.
The multiplayer tactical space-based shooter puts players in the role of a heavily armed astronaut in space engaging in fierce zero gravity firefights and executing low-gravity operations on orbiting space installations against enemy astronauts and other entities.
“Our publishing agreement with Huyagives us the much needed time to line up a simultaneous launch across PlayStation 4 and PC platforms and moves us out of the traditionally competitive last quarter. While any delay to a well-received concept is never ideal, we want to use the additional time we have to invest into a solid product that our supportive fans and growing community deserve.” said Frank Mingbo Li, CEO, Technical Director and Founder of Surgical Scalpels.
