The project was brilliantly named Marathon and is, as insider Tom Henderson predicted, an evacuation PvP shooter in the style of the infamous Escape from Tarkov.

As cybernetic mercenaries nicknamed “Runner”, players explore a forgotten colony on the mysterious planet Tau Ceti IV in search of alien artifacts, valuables, weapons and equipment.

They promise intense gameplay for one- and three-man squads, dynamic (player actions have consequences) and story-rich online world, cross-play, and transfer of progress between platforms.

Marathon will be available for PC, PS5, Xbox Series “Bold Visual Style”.
