Futuristic Sports Shooter Epigenesis Launches

Epigenesis launches today: get your fill of future sports without risky time travel.

By Fraser Brown | PCGamesN There are a lot of things that are probably going to be just awful in the future: the cost of fuel, environmental decline, the robot uprising. Sports, though, they are probably going to be awesome.  You can get a taste of future sports today, because FPS ball game Epigenesis is launching. It’s all leaping and shooting and cool costumes, and we should probably all just play that instead of watching men in wee shorts kicking a ball. While most sporty tournaments are of no importance beyond who gets to hold a gaudy trophy, Epigenesis determines the fate of the world. The planet’s a right mess, and the competition is essentially a fight for...

Unfortunately the trailer above just shows a few clips from the film, so if you weren’t at Comic-Con, you’ll just have to use your imagination.  The combat scenario pits players piloting Gipsy Danger against the kaiju...
