Ripout was officially announced on consoles as well as on PC from 3D Realms with a new trailer and will therefore also arrive on PS5 and Xbox Series X | Son a date yet to be defined but probably by the end of 2022.
This was probably the “exceptional” announcement expected by 3D Realms for February 2022, with the confirmation of the arrival of the game as a cross-platform. Ripout is a FPS with a sci-fi and horror settingwhich is somewhat reminiscent of DOOM and a little of Dead Space, but with a structure rather linked to the classic first-person shooter, as befits a production of the 3D Realms label.
As one of the last living human soldiers in the year 2084, we find ourselves exploring ships and space bases occupied by assorted and downright creepy monstrosities. The enemies, in addition to being horrible compounds of organic material and machinesthey are also able to reconfigure in real time.
This means that, at least some of these, can change shape unexpectedly and even incorporate other smaller creatures in order to create even more horrible compounds, as well as more lethal in combat, of course.
However, this transforming ability is also found in the weapon supplied to the protagonist: the “Pet Gun” is able to modify its configuration, shape and firing capacity according to needs, thus providing valid support in different situations. Ripout contains a single player campaign but also cooperative multiplayer and also procedurally generated missions.
