Earlier this morning Pixyul, the new independent development studio composed of former Ubisoft and Eidos developers, launched their upcoming title BIOS (Basic Input Output System) via Steam Early Access. This forthcoming masterpiece will not be your average first-person shooter, as players must speedily race to the finish line while completing a series of difficult tasks and missions. As stated in the official BIOS Steam Early Access page, the game will include a grand total of 8 environments and around 24 map challenges. After conducting some additional research, I discovered that the developers will be implementing more environments and maps as the game continues to grow in popularity.
According to the studio's Technology Director, Philippe Leblanc, Pixyul's new FPS is powered by Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4. Unreal Engine 4 has allowed the developers to incorporate several features into their game that can be found in multiple well-known AAA games, such as Call of Duty or Titanfall. Unfortunately as of now, there is no Mac/Linux/console support, although the team is currently "investigating the possibility" of bringing BIOS to other platforms. For a better look at Pixyul's new title, you can watch the official release trailer below.
I am immensely exhilarated for this particular title, and you should be too. Personally, I have been playing Call of Duty and Battlefield for as long as I can remember, so it's quite exciting to see new features and challenges being implemented into a familiar environment. I have very high expectations for this game. BIOS will be available on Steam for $17.99, but you can save 15% by pre-purchasing the game before June 11th. What are your thoughts and opinions on Pixyul's new FPS?
