ARENA SHOOTER— it’s fast-paced, easy to pick up, hard to master and set deep underwater. That’s right, the Tidal Shock arena is submerged and not confined to gravity. Bullets will rain down, snipers will lurk below and attacks can come from any angle. There are respawns but no loadouts – shields, weapons, and charge are pickups that you’ll drop on death. The question is, are you hunting for more or protecting what you have?

SHOCKING TWIST?— Tidal Shock has a winner take all objective. The player who slams 100 charge onto the ever-moving reactor will “tidalshock” the competition and earn a coveted “Charge Cube” (what it does and how it’s used will be revealed as we exit early access).

WHY IS THIS TWIST INTERESTING— Our moving objective (the reactor) creates an in-match economy as players scavenge and fight for the energy capsules required to charge it. Each time the reactor moves, it sparks fast tension-packed clashes as players rush to its new location. Best part: In 60 seconds the reactor switches locations again sparking a new round of clashes until one champ gets 100 charges and “tidalshocks” the arena.
