Turbo Overkill, the cyberpunk boomer shooter aims for 1.0 on July 18th

From Press Release:

NEW ZEALAND — June 12, 2023 — Turbo Overkill, the critically acclaimed, hyper-fast-paced cyberpunk boomer shooter with more than 172,000 wishlists from publisher Apogee Entertainment and developer Trigger Happy Interactive, lasers in on a 1.0 launch date of Tuesday, July 18, 2023, as revealed as part of IGN’s Summer of Gaming. Chainsaw a path towards destiny with the surprise launch of Turbo Overkill: The Final Episode, Part 1 via Steam Early Access and GOG.

The neon-lit dystopia known as Paradise has been overrun by Syn, an all-seeing artificial intelligence dead-set on destruction. Take control of Johnny Turbo as he embarks on a gun-laden, chainsaw-tastic quest to purge his planet of Syn’s scourge of an intense, white-knuckle journey toward the epic conclusion of Turbo Overkill.

The Final Episode, Part 1 kicks destruction into overdrive with five new Syn-enhanced, ability-boosting augments: paint the town red with dual chainsaw arms, and rev up fresh carnage with the addition of a second chainsaw leg. Rain down street-cleansing firepower from new heights with the addition of triple jump and wall slides, and fast-travel with Syntech portals for quick long-distance warping.

Slay a fresh batch of brainwashed baddies in The Final Episode, Part 1 with new cybernetic monstrosities roaming the blood-soaked streets (and skies… and… space!?). Prepare for mayhem against dinosaur-like Mortars, massive four-legged Clops equipped with chainsaw spears, and bloodthirsty clones of Maw, Johnny’s arch nemesis (voiced by Gianna Matragrano).

Turbo Overkill: The Final Episode packs a silver screen-worthy musical punch with a cyberpunk/orchestral fusion original soundtrack by Tim Stoney (Star Wars: Obi Wan Kenobi – Trailer theme), Assassins Creed: Origins – Trailer theme), and Nikola Jeremic (Cyberpunk 2077, Destiny 2), and Chipper Hammond (Disney Shanghai Parade, Arranger) complimented by the legendary “Blaster Beam” instrument performed by Craig Huxley (Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Wars: Episode II).

Turbo Overkill’s 1.0 launch will conclude the epic narrative with the second half of Episode 3. Witness the finale and take on Turbo Overkill’s god-like villains with a level of firepower even a supercomputer could not predict. Execute over-the-top kill combos with precision to unlock achievements, take the fast-paced frenzy online with multiplayer options, and redesign Paradise into a completely different experience with full mod support.

“We wanted to surprise Turbo Overkill fans with Episode 3, Part 1, which is bigger in scope than anything we’ve done in the past 2 episodes combined. We are incredibly grateful for our fans’ support and feedback along this early access journey, and hope they enjoy this surprise launch,” said Sam Prebble, lead developer. “1.0 is just around the corner, with plenty of surprises left to unveil.”

Turbo Overkill: The Final Episode, Part 1 is now available via Steam Early Access for PC with 1.0 set to release Tuesday, July 18, 2023. Episodes 1-3 are available now for USD $19.95.
