ARC Raiders Switches From Third-Person Co-Op Shooter To Player-Versus-Player-Versus Environment Survival Extraction Shooter

Embark Studios has announced that ARC Raiders has completely changed genres from a third-person co-op shooter to a ‘player-versus-player-versus-environment survival extraction shooter.’

Speaking on a blog post, Aleksander Grondal, the game’s producer, commented:

Last spring, we made the decision to move the release of ARC Raiders in order to focus on releasing THE FINALS, our team-based first-person shooter, as our first game. At that time, we also said we were giving the ARC Raiders team time to add player-versus-player to the existing foundation of the game.

Since then, over the course of development, ARC Raiders has taken the shape of what we believe to be a truly promising player-versus-player-versus-environment survival extraction shooter—a game that stays true to the ARC Raiders universe and we’re having a blast testing internally.

ARC Raiders is scheduled for release on PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X/S at some point in 2023. Here’s the new blurb to mark the game’s transition to another genre:

ARC Raiders is a free-to-play, third-person, player-versus-player-versus-environment extraction shooter set in a lethal future earth ravaged by a mechanized threat known as ARC. You’re a Raider, earning your keep in the struggling colony of Speranza, fighting for survival against ARC and other Raiders standing in your way.
