Demo To Show Off The Showdown Effect


Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games and a face-transplant surgery clinic, have today allowed gamers everywhere a taste of action-movie stardom by releasing a free demo of The Showdown Effect. The new multiplayer action title from Arrowhead Game Studios, released earlier this week, throws players into a no-holds-and-no-oneliners-barred brawl for survival, placing them in the roles of 1980s action hero archetypes armed with a terrifying pile of weapons. The demo will allow players to access the game’s training stage—a singleplayer mode—as a means to get familiar with the controls before they take on live action heroes in the retail version.

If the prospect of trying to personally survive The Showdown Effect is too intimidating, gamers can also witness others being subjected to the explosive chaos in a live stream event today, featuring players from The GD Studio, creators and producers of e-sport shows that will melt your face off. Other faces to be melted include representatives from Paradox and Arrowhead, all competing in team matches with commentary from Paradox’s Shams Jorjani and Johan Pilestedt. The stream will pit four teams against each other as they battle to become the last clichés standing. Check out the action at 7 p.m. GMT (11 a.m. PST) by tuning into the official Paradox Interactive channel on TwitchTV at http://www.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive

Aspiring combatants can also learn everything there is to know about The Showdown Effect during an “IAMA” event on Reddit, scheduled to begin on today at 9 p.m. GMT (1 p.m. PST). Jorjani and Pilestedt will take questions about the game’s development, their personal action film preferences, and whether or not they are getting too old for this.

The Showdown Effect is available from digital distributors everywhere, to see the list of retailers please visit http://www.theshowdowneffect.com/buy.
