Square Enix Collective has this week announced that it’s manic competitive multiplayer game, Oh My Godheads is set launch this December on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
In Oh My Godheads teams of two battle it out in a frantic game of “capture-the-head” where teams are rewarded for scoring by getting the Godhead to their respective goals. However unlike most capture-the-flag-style games, Oh My Godheads shakes up the formula by bringing in special conditions depending on which Godhead is in play.
Each Godhead in the game, if held for too long, can completely shake-up the game for better or for worse. For example, one Godhead could get enraged and explode, another can unleash a plume of smoke making it impossible to see where the Godhead holder is.
To add to that, the enemy team can unleash a barrage of attacks to get the Godhead from themselves in both melee and exploding pie form.
So when is this frantic multiplayer game launching? It’s set to hit all three platforms on December 5, just in time for Christmas.
“Trying to describe Oh My Godheads is no easy task, but I’m going to give it go,” said Federico Sauret, co-CEO of Titutitech. “For us, this is a game about recapturing that sense of fun so many couch based multiplayer games pulled off in the 1990s. What we’ve created is a fast paced game packed full of Godheads, each one sporting its own personality and unique abilities, and a whole host of exploding pies. Yes, exploding pies. It’s all a bit nuts, but we love it.”
