In Shattered Horizon, a catastrophic explosion on the Moon has filled near-Earth space with billions of tons of rocky debris. Survivors on the Moon are forced into conflict with those trapped on the battered International Space Station. Teams of players fight in zero gravity to control the limited supplies that mean the difference between survival and death in the cold of space.

With simple and intuitive controls, players have complete freedom of movement making full use of the distinctive zero gravity environments to control the battle. Shattered Horizon rewards players with gameplay and tactics impossible in games constrained by gravity.

“Shattered Horizon is this year’s most original first-person shooter,” said Jukka Mäkinen, Head of Futuremark Games Studio.“In a sea of sequels, Shattered Horizon offers PC gamers a fresh and innovative shooter with intense zero gravity combat that cannot be found in other games.”
