Terrible Posture Games and Grip Digital today announced a partnership with publisher Sold Out to bring the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of their upcoming bullet hell first-person shooter MOTHERGUNSHIP to retail when the game releases in 2018.

For those just tuning in, MOTHERGUNSHIP is the spiritual successor to 2014’s Tower of Guns. The game features frenetic FPS combat with over-the-top weapon customization options, allowing players to explore procedurally generated levels and craft a burgeoning arsenal of comically destructive weaponry to battle hordes of mechanical baddies and impossibly massive bosses.

“This is a great title for Sold Out. With MOTHERGUNSHIP, you have the freedom to create whatever you want with a new modular approach to gun crafting that allows players to express themselves with millions of possible combinations. You can even strap 12 barrels to one weapon if you want,” commented Joshua Garrity, Digital Content Manager at Sold Out Sales & Marketing Limited. “This makes for exhilarating fast and explosive gameplay, plus the game’s procedurally generated level layouts and enemy configurations ensure that it feels like a new challenge every time you play, no matter how many times you come back for more.”

“MOTHERGUNSHIP is over-the-top old school shooter fun, and I want players to laugh out loud when they play it,” said project director and Terrible Posture Games founder, Joe Mirabello. “Working together with Grip Digital, we’ve taken everything we liked about Tower of Guns and amped it up while also making major improvements to all the stuff we didn’t like. The result is an even bigger and better game in MOTHERGUNSHIP and with Sold Out’s help we want to reach the biggest audience possible.”

MOTHERGUNSHIP will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018.
