Get ready to run and gun in early 2013.

Atlus has announced God Mode, a new third-person shooter in development at Old School Games in collaboration with Saber Interactive due out in early 2013 for PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Arcade, and PC.

In God Mode, players take on the role of the descendant of an ancient god who is turned mortal after his family is banished from Mount Olympus. To seek redemption and claim their place, players must battle through the Maze of Hades in the underworld.

The game will offer “non-linear gameplay, fast and frantic shooting,” and “hordes of on-screen enemies.” In addition to the single-player campaign, the game will offer online and offline (LAN-only) co-op play for up to four players.

Players will be able to fully customize their character’s appearance and equipment, have access to over 11 different weapons, and make use of a special ability fueled by Rage, which is gathered by amassing kills. Players will be abale to choose from several different upgradable powers that range from offensive to defensive to support skills. In-game modifiers known as “Test of Faith” will allow gameplay alterations on the fly to make no two matches the same.

God Mode will cost $9.99 when it launches.

    You guys suck and always put faith in the wrong places.

    Even if this game is a shooter, the fact that Atlus is even bothering to publish it means it’s probably a heck of a lot different and wouldn’t even get recognition or release otherwise.

    Atlus is helping a clearly weird take on shooters see release. We should be happy that it’s not some random COD clone like Homefront.

    Certainly looks unique, but I can’t say it looks particularly good. In particular, the camera seems too far tucked away when not aiming (and I sense a feeling of vertigo coming when you rapidly zoom in/out…), and the environments and enemies look pretty generic.
    Still, it could be a fun game, and it’s obviously a lot different than the regular shovel of Shooter games anymore. I don’t know if it’s going to be as welcomed creatively as I assume Atlus is hoping for, but if the game lives up to it, then hell— right on.
