Atomicom has today announced the development of its latest title, the sci-fi, sports-arena shooter, Elevate Combat League. You’ll remember Atomicom as they gave us the slick, flawless futuristic racer Switch Galaxy Ultra back in 2014.

In Elevate Combat League, players can sculpt the arena to their advantage using exciting skills and weapons. The game’s flagship mode is a deadly contact sport where players will fight for control of a ball with which they can score goals.

Here’s what to expect

In the year 2097, a groundbreaking championship was created for mass entertainment. Soon after, all other sports became obsolete and the Elevate Combat League was born. Within this now dominant sport, armed athletes called Grid Runners fight each other individually or in teams on high-tech sculptable arenas. Players are given skills in order to best their opponents including sculpt, grapple, climb, surf, shield and jet pack. They must utilise their expertise across challenging team and solo modes.

Elevate has been built from the ground up for evenly-matched competition with characters balanced by rank. Players are also able to compete in online leagues based on their ranks. As players rise through the leagues, their skills begin to last longer, resulting in increasingly spectacular encounters. Elevate takes the classic futuristic aesthetic of sci-fi sports and gives players of any level a unique experience. You can never take your eye off the ball…or the arena.

The studio is also working with Lotus TV Macau who will be building a TV series around the game which will air during launch across south east asia. The Lotus league will be a unique league within the game offering high end prizes and live eSports events.

You will be able to check out an early version of the game at EGX in Birmingham (UK), from September 21st to 24th. Elevate will launch on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.

It’s great to see the return of these Liverpudlian Developers. We’ll bring you more news as we get it!
