The government created intelligent robotic insects to fight against biochemically altered humans — and that barely scratches the surface of what’s going on in M.A.R.S., a new sci-fi shooter from developer YingPei Games and publisher SubaGames. It just went into early access on Steam and it offers all the classic PvP shooter modes as well as co-op modes against a bewildering range of enemies.

For PvP lovers, M.A.R.S. comes with Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Search & Destroy modes, as well as Headhunter mode, where your head gets bigger with each kill you collect. There are plenty of weapons, and they’re all upgradeable, so you can perfectly customize your fragging experience.

Want PvE content? M.A.R.S. has that, too, in four-player co-op modes with opposition coming in the form of some, shall we say, unusual foes. From the game’s description:

Travel through time amidst your efforts to save the world! Fighting dinosaurs, mummies, robots and sorts of creatures from ancient history and the future… as well as some timelines that never happened!

Well, that’s certainly a direction you can go. Check out the open beta of M.A.R.S. for yourself on Steam.

  1. Just to let people know this is Zombies ands monsters reuploaded nothing really changed either expect much more heavy on paid items.

  2. The game is so boring it makes me want to play Counter-Strike 1.6.

    The player base from what I saw is insignificant and the only game modes are fighting hordes of zombies or robots or cybernetic zombies. There weren’t any traditional game modes like TDM or Demolition and the game is only in 3rd person.

    The graphics look decent, but the things I described make me not want to play it at all.

  3. Game’s description, sounds trumpish. 🙂 The game i checked out on de tube and looks fairish to the same ol’stuff, only playing it will tell.
