Gatewalkers

Gatewalkers is a cooperative survival game with action RPG elements, where you travel across different worlds in order to save their own. Explore procedurally generated worlds, face hostile inhabitants, face challenges like extreme weather conditions, toxic atmosphere, lack of water and more.



TEAM CO-OP


As a Gatewalker, one of the chosen few, you can go through the Gate and explore the worlds that lay on the other side. Team up with up to 3 other players in this team-based survival. Fight terrifying monsters, survive extreme weather conditions, follow the orders given by the Guild, and most importantly, stay alive!


WORLD EXPLORATION


Explore the procedurally generated worlds with unique terrain features, plants, and creatures. Discover new resources and crafting materials. Face various environmental hazards: toxic or unbreathable atmosphere, terrifying darkness, penetrating cold, and much more. Each world type introduces a unique survival mechanic that forces you to adapt. Finding food, water or wood to start a fire may be impossible. Consider carefully what to bring with you on the expedition, as no one really knows what awaits on the other side of the Gate.


TEAM SURVIVAL



Surviving alone in an unknown world is really hard. But with teammates at your side, you at least stand a chance. Share the responsibilities: start a fire to let others warm up, build a tent to let your mates rest, warn them about the dangers lurking in the night. The key to surviving is cooperation between you and your team.


SKILL BASED COMBAT



Isometric skill-based combat without auto targeting. Your skills may miss, and you can dodge enemy attacks! Good positioning during combat, balanced use of skills, proper timing and team synergy are all crucial to victory.


CRAFTING



Choose an item to craft. Discover the appropriate recipe. Raid different worlds to gather required resources. Find or create a crafting station. Finally, build the item and use it!


YOU ARE WHAT YOU WEAR



There are no predefined character classes. Each item gives you a unique set of skills, so try tinkering with different builds. Take heavy armour and a healing staff to support your mates in the front line by tanking and restoring health. Remember, you are, what you wear!


PROCEDURALLY GENERATED WORLDS



Each time you pass the Gate you will land in a different, procedurally generated world. This gives you countless opportunities, offers constant challenges, and forces you to adapt in order to win in changing conditions! Always stay cautious, modify your strategy, make fast decisions and face their consequences, because you never know what waits around the corner.

Gatewalkers


When considering survival games genre, the first thing that comes to one’s mind are bivalent titles, that very often mix the kind with some sort of apocalypse, for a climax, or battle royale, as a mode. No matter how strong this picture is rooted inside our minds, nowadays the survival games are far from that pattern, growing and becoming something unique with every new title.


Since that time survival games have become extremely popular and, because of that boom, more and more game creators have decided to use the idea in their individual project. Sadly, most of the first survival products, following Minecraft’s and DayZ’s as their precursors, were often just lookalikes, with a little of changes added to the gameplay or setting. After some time, the players, bored with the lack of diversity, have started to walk away from the genre, looking for something more interesting to play. This groundbreaking moment was the greatest sign the developers could have ever asked for and, from that time, the genre started to evolve and abandoned its prototypes in order to develop and improve.

Gatewalkers


It came as a surprise that survival games can tell different stories than world after the zombie apocalypse or spreading fatal disease. Considering the setting of survival games – there are no rules. Everything that limits developers is brought down to their imagination only. And one of the best examples is, having its premiere back in 2014, Subnautica, created by Unknown Worlds Entertainment. This open-world game not only allows the players to do whatever they want, during their exploration of the alien planet ocean, but – in all its openness – will be forcing them to gather information and collect resources needed in order to survive. The survival part here isn’t about joining the battle against other human beings, but about growing as a person in a completely unfamiliar environment and by being more cooperative than destructive.

Actually, when it comes to analysing those radically varied approaches to survival games, the one’s beginning to wonder what would happen if there was a title that, actually, could have combined those features with each other. And it looks like the hero’s having its big entrance just in time for our expectations.

Gatewalkers


Gatewalkers – a survival-co-op game, that’s going to be published in the nearest future – is the perfect example of how you can implement freshness to a slowly disappearing genre. As a hero travelling through multiple dimensions, the players will be forced to fight various kinds of enemies. However, will they do it is a whole different story.

Every opponent will require the player to be highly flexible with selecting the right strategy. The combat alone will not be as simple as the ones we've been dealing with so far, in the previous titles. Gatewalkers really wanted to spice things up regarding fight, so the player will need to make sure that all the pieces of a plan work together. The skillset, the upgrades of one’ equipment, positioning and momentum must be in perfect synergy, in order for the player to emerge victorious from the battle. What’s even more entertaining – despite the fact that Gatewalkers is partly MMO game, there are no classes to choose from. The way the player’s character is going to overcome various obstacles is defined by decisions made during gameplay and not by means of a class-assigned strategy. And the character’s development will not take place at the same time as reaching levels, but it will depend on what conclusions we draw from travelling through different worlds, and how we're gonna use the recipes we found, to permit our character to grow. The weapon won't jump out of a defeated opponent, either. The player will have to assemble the correct fragments of the schematics, understand them and, in connection with the collected raw materials, craft his own equipment.

Gatewalkers


All the survival games will throw the player into a world where he will have to fight for one’s survival, but not all of them will follow a realistic approach. There is still some place for innovation in this genre, but in order to absorb the player, they need to create a realistic sense of threat, not just pretend that it exists and has no unpleasant consequences for the player.
