Shattered Horizon is a multiplayer first person shooter that immerses you in the cold reality of combat in space. Teams of players fight in zero gravity to control hollowed-out asteroids, huge fragments of Moon rock and the ruined remains of the International Space Station.
Shattered Horizon is exclusive to the PC and is also one of the first games to require a DirectX 10 graphics card running under Windows Vista or the recently released Windows 7.
Pre-order Offer: 10 percent off
Gamers who pre-order Shattered Horizon not only get a 10 percent discount but will also be able to play and test new level packs before they become available to everyone else.
Antti Summala, lead designer at Futuremark Games Studio explained, "During our beta many game features, and even one whole level, were added as a direct result of beta tester feedback. The process worked so well that we have decided to continue it after launch. Gamers who pre-order Shattered Horizon will join an elite group who will get early access to help test and refine new levels to be released in future content updates."
Post launch support
Futuremark Games Studio has confirmed that Shattered Horizon will be supported after launch with new levels and features being added to the game through downloadable content packs. These expansions will be free to all players.
Shattered Horizon allows PC gamers to choose who and how they want to play through dedicated servers run by the community. Futuremark Games Studio will host dedicated servers for North America, Europe and Australia and New Zealand at launch with the server code being made available to everyone shortly afterwards.
Game server hosting companies, clan and e-sport communities, and tournament and LAN party organisers can contact Futuremark Games Studio for early access to server code via fgs [at] futuremark [dot] com.
