Super Evil Megacorp announced its new game, Catalyst Black, will launch later this spring — May 25, specifically. The new battleground shooter from the developers of Vainglory will be a competitive multiplayer title for mobile gamers.
Catalyst Black was first shown at the iPhone 13 showcase last year, albeit briefly. It was originally called “Project Spellfire.” The game will be as good-looking and fun-to-play as any triple-A console title, and is built on the company’s E.V.I.L. engine.
The gameplay is fairly typical of a top-down battleground title. Players can customize their loadout and will have over 30 guns, 12 abilities, and 15 trinkets to choose from at launch. They’ll also have 6 primals, or giant entities that they can summon to fight against their enemies. It will also have a variety of modes, including PvP, PvE, and PvEvP.
Kristian Segerstrale, CEO of Super Evil Megacorp, said in a statement, “Catalyst Black takes mobile-first games to a new level both by offering input flexibility and through its accessible yet deep, action-packed gameplay.
