Chasm: The Rift launches on Switch today
Into the void
Publisher SNEG brings back the original Chasm: The Rift to Switch today. Experience the original boomer shooter with full HD support on current gen consoles and controls adapted for modern gamepads on all platform, including gyro aiming on Nintendo’s hardware. Quality of life features added to the game include improved character control, crosshair customization and difficulty scaling to mention a few.
In Chasm: The Rift you play as a part of a special commando unit found in a bizarre place – feeling you are no longer alone, you turn, with just enough time to shoot, killing the mutation charging mercilessly toward you. You begin to sense an eerie feeling of fear in the air, but your skin crawls as you realize it’s your own…What was that thing?
Again and again you shoot, battling more strange beasts; all grotesque mutations of creatures you once knew. Suddenly the inexplicable becomes clear. Time channels have formed in the Earth’s atmosphere, turning once normal life forms into something they were never meant to be. You must not only ward off and eradicate the beasts, but destroy the time channels to finally rid the Earth of these deadly mutations.
Main game features:
💥 The classic returns – forget about modern boomer shooters and play the real thing. Either you have fond memories of the fast-paced combat or you always wanted to try out this nineties gem – now is the time to enjoy Chasm: The Rift from the comfort of your couch (or wherever you play on portable hardware)
💥 The original boomer shooter for a modern player - Enhanced graphics with full 4K support, improved sound design, full gamepad controls, achievements and 12 language versions with the same old-school gameplay
💥 They had this in 1997? - Remember when we said you will be cutting monsters limb by limb? We meant it literally. You will blow off monsters’ limbs even as they continue to attack with remaining appendages – don’t hesitate to put them out of their misery. You’ll be doing everyone a favor
💥 Tools of trade – Awesome array of weapons, including unique Blade Gun. Forget a normal shotgun in Chasm: The Rift you’ll play with a Super shotgun. Not to mention the “Mega Destroyer” – don’t leave it to your imagination to know what it does and try it out!
