Battle Shapers, the FPS roguelite enters Early Access on October 3rd

From Press Release:

Montreal, Canada – August 21, 2023 – Kicking off the week of Gamescom, Metric Empire has revealed the release date for the studio’s debut FPS roguelite, Battle Shapers. On October 3rd, 2023, Battle Shapers will launch into Early Access where the devs will continue to refine and expand the game by adding more content and features while collaborating with the community to help mold the ambitious shooter into its best form.

The game will be joining Unity, the world’s leading platform for creating and growing real-time 3D (RT3D) content, at GamesCom this week. From Aug 23-25, Unity is taking over the ASH Köln MesseCity where Battle Shapers will be providing hands-on with an all-new demo.

“We’re eager to not only deliver a fascinating and exciting blend of gameplay, we want to do so with a high level of polish,” says Pier-Luc Papineau, Design Director. “A good first impression is key so we want to collaborate with our community to make sure that we deliver a title they can be proud of and excited to share with others!”

Battle Shapers is a single-player FPS roguelite fusing the high-intensity combat from modern shooters with the vibrant, nostalgic vibe of console classics. Take on the role of Ada, a spirited android who must shoot and smash her way through hordes of robots with the goal of bringing peace back to a utopia in turmoil. Develop your arsenal of weapons, unlock new abilities and permanent upgrades, explore vibrant towers, and defy merciless Overlords that will stop at nothing to see you fail. Rise anew, overcome their ever-changing challenges, and steal their prized Cores, integrating their unique powers and abilities into your arsenal.



  • FIGHT LASER WITH LASER — Gun down hordes of cunning enemy machines with relentless risk-taking, and bot-busting close-range warfare in which every kill fuels your combat capabilities. Learn to adapt to the Overlords’ dangerous attacks and retaliations that are thrown at you every step of the way.
  • COMBAT IS ONLY HALF THE BATTLE — Unlock new weapons, abilities and talents to permanently increase your survivability and combat potential with every run. Each tower promises different hidden upgrades and weapons to strengthen your journey further.
  • BUILD YOUR ‘CORE’ STRENGTH — Acquire fallen Overlords’ powers and watch as they change not just your abilities, but your appearance and gameplay. As your powers grow and change, be careful—with every defeated Overlord, Ada’s path becomes more and more difficult.

Battle Shapers launches October 3rd, 2023 on Steam. Find more about Battle Shapers at:
