Disturbingly photorealistic Unreal Engine 5 shooter lands on Steam this week

Disturbingly photorealistic Unreal Engine 5 shooter lands on Steam this week

Early access for the title launches on June 7

A new Unreal Engine 5-powered multiplayer shooter that's centered around body-cam footage is hitting early access on June 7, later this week.

The game is being developed by indie studio Ressiad Studio, and is titled Bodycam. It's launching in early access on June 7, and is entirely focused on multiplayer, with no single-player content available whatsoever. It's unclear whether the game will receive single-player content in the final release, but for the period of early access, it'll be exclusively multiplayer.

"BODYCAM is an ultra-realistic multiplayer first-person shooter game built using the latest technologies from the next-generation Unreal Engine 5 game engine. Developed by two French video game enthusiasts aged 17 and 20, the game was designed to push the boundaries of realism and photorealism: a truly revolutionary experience for the genre," the official Steam store page for the game states.

Explaining why the game is being released in an early access format rather then launching further down the line, the developers explained that this was due to wanting to make continuous improvement and listen to community feedback.

“We are Luca and Leo, two passionate French developers (17 and 20 Yo), and together we've created Bodycam, an ultra-realistic multiplayer FPS game utilizing the latest features of Unreal Engine 5, we have pushed the boundaries of photorealism. Our mission is to deliver an intense, immersive, and teamplay-oriented experience that stands out from other games in the genre. And we are very proud of the result!"
