Annihilation mode was unveiled this week for third-person shooter Loadout, just in time for the upcoming final release of the game. It combines all of the familiar tactics and objectives from prior modes while also placing an emphasis on competition.

Teams of up to 8 will bring the hammer down across the battlefield in an effort to lower the enemies defenses, infiltrate their territory, swipe their hammer and bring it on home. Setting itself aside from the more common capture modes, Annihilation destroys the mold by including a final objective of bringing the now charged enemy hammer back to it’s original base and bashing it deeply into the enemy power supply, rendering a giant climactic explosion followed with sweet victory.

Although it is inherently a team based mode, it doesn’t skip on highlighting the individual. Exceptional performance is awarded in the form of a personal score which functions similar to currency, giving the ability to purchase performance injections. Each injection provides a particular buff, such as increased damage for the slayer, damage absorption for the tanks and even a healer injection for anyone looking to spread the love.

Annihilation as well as all the chaos Loadout promises will be available January 31st, 2014.

  1. I had a beta key even since the game started closed beta.It was really fun,I mean it’s very good for casual people like me.Give it a shot guys,you won’t lose anything!

  2. This game usually was empty every time I logged in, i had it installed around 3-4 months and only was able to join around 3 matches.
    Annihilation looks pretty interesting, I wonder what the average time per match is, it kind of seems long, not that’s a bad thing,
