Histera Throws Time into Chaos With its Impending Release

Histera Throws Time into Chaos With its Impending Release

Another F2P shooter is not something that usually excites me. I am pretty worn out by the whole genre if I am honest. It takes something pretty different to grab my attention these days. Enter Histera, which at first blush appears to be just another shooter, but look a little closer and you will see something a bit wilder.

Coming from StickyLock Games, Histera (not to be confused with the all-time classic Def Lepard album Hysteria) is a team-based shooter that sees players take to a dynamic, shifting battlefield that loops through time periods, changing pick-ups and weapons in the process. It is a super cool effect that sees players shifting from a modern battlefield to a prehistoric era in the blink of an eye. This time-shift is called the Glitch and it is a random event, which means that each match will be different, with no one knowing which time period they will end up in. 

The game also promises the ability to mix weaponry from different eras. A flint-tipped arrow fired from a hunting bow or a fancy futuristic shotgun? Why not both? There is a lot of potential here for some crazy loadouts and while I do have some concern about weapon balance, it is such a cool idea that I am absolutely going to jump in to check it out. Finally, the thing that struck me the most, especially as an older gamer, it gives off a real Unreal Tournament feel to the gameplay, a style that I have missed greatly. 

By the time you read this article, Histera will be in early access on Steam so what are you waiting for? I will be checking it out so look for more coverage on Player 2 soon. If you need more convincing, check out the trailer below.
