Disintegration, Halo Co-Creator's New Sci-Fi FPS, Gets Its First Gameplay Trailer

Squad-based sci-fi tactics seems just about right.

Disintegration is the new game from V1 Interactive, a studio led and founded by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto. And while we got a mild tease a little while ago, today we got a full gameplay reveal of just what this team is putting together.

Disintegration is a first-person shooter, set in a sci-fi setting where humanity has become significantly evolved through tech, though the voiceover in the trailer seems to imply that this isn't a good thing. It has both a single-player campaign with story, as well as a multiplayer portion.

You play as the pilot shown in the trailer, riding on a grav-bike with a host of offensive weapons and defensive utilities. It's aiming to blend first-person shooter mechanics with real-time tactics, as you command a squad of soldiers with different abilities and strengths, while you also fight in battles yourself. And of course, it looks suitably sci-fi, as you'd imagine it would coming from one of the minds behind Halo.

While Disintgeration surges ahead, Halo is preparing for its own new horizons on the next Xbox, currently code-named Project Scarlett. While Xbox boss Phil Spencer is saying the publisher is giving its devs the time they need to build their games, 343 Industries has seen some shake-ups. Its creative director just departed the studio last week, so its uncertain how ready Halo Infinite is for the next gen.

Disintegration is playable at Gamescom this weekend, but it won't be released until 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. So it may be a bit, but it seems like this is definitely one that Halo or Destiny fans should be keeping an eye on, as a shooter that could really shake up the genre.
