Repulse provides adrenaline-pumping action in a variety of hard-hitting player-versus-player (PvP) and player-versus-environment (PvE) modes. This frenetic FPS game also features full clan support, resulting in intense shootouts between rival players and clans.

“We’ve upgraded Repulse with four brand new maps to celebrate its commercial launch as an intense, hard-hitting sci-fi shooter,” said Tom Nichols, North America Director of Publishing, Aeria Games. “With twitch-based action moves like the Boost Jump, Wall Jump, and Dodge, Repulse sets the standard for brutally futuristic online combat.”

  • Special Action Moves – Use the dodge step ability and quick reflexes to avoid incoming enemy fire. Quickly jump in and out of combat with the boost ability. Overcome obstacles with the wall jump or sneak up on your enemies by cloaking. All these features and more are available in the Action Mode channels.
  • New Content Added – Four new, exciting maps with multiple gameplay modes have expanded the game since the Closed Beta. Utilize the new teleporters to test your skills in the Memorial and Arena maps but watch out for energy-draining static fields in the Castle map!
