Redhill Games has revealed the first alpha gameplay footage of Nine to Five, the new team-tactics first-person shooter that’s as much about outsmarting your rivals as it is outgunning them. In addition, Redhill has announced that Nine to Five’s PC closed alpha will begin on June 4. Players can sign up right now for a chance to join at www.ninetofive.game.
“We believe shooters can be smarter — and smarter can be more fun. We want teamwork to triumph over brute force and reflexes, giving players a refined shooting experience with the freedom to customize your game plan as you see fit,” said Redhill Games CEO Matias Myllyrinne. “You can expect plenty of rough edges and thrilling surprises in the alpha, and we’ll be engaging closely with the community for your feedback on day one.”
Set in a near-future where corporations rule everything and being a mercenary is just another job, each round of Nine to Five pits three teams of three against each other across three intense rounds with changing objectives. Every round influences the next, ratcheting up the tension and forcing players to constantly adapt their strategy to win, all in about 15 minutes per match.
