Livelock – Perfect World unveils first Buy-to-Play game on Arc platform

[Game website] Perfect World Entertainment recently announced Livelock, a fast-paced cooperative top-down shooter combining intelligent action and unique characters, for its Arc platform. Developed by Tuque Games, Livelock will be the first Buy-to-Play game to join Perfect World’s portfolio of Free-to-Play titles. It will launch in 2016 simultaneously for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.


Livelock transports players into the 22nd century, the age of the machine. Nearly a century after cataclysm, humanity is on the brink of survival. Clusters, groups of corrupted machines control what remains of the earth, fight each other in a war over resources that threatens the very planet itself. Players take control of a Capital Intellect, a human consciousness uploaded to large mechanical body.

Armed with a unique arsenal of weapons and special abilities, the Capital Intellect must fight the corrupted machine Clusters and break the cycle of an infinite war, before humanity is forgotten in the annals of history. Rather than just a standard online game, Livelock will have both single-player and online co-operative modes. There is yet to be a launch schedule, so stay tuned for more details!
