Ex Halo Creative Designer announces Squad Based title Epsilon

Serellan, LLC, a small independent video game studio which boasts industry veterans who have worked on hit franchises such as Ghost Recon, Halo, Shadows of Mordor, Mad Max, Killzone, SOCOM, MAG, Need for Speed, SWAT and many more have today announced that their Unreal 4 powered squad based stealth action shooter Epsilon, will be released on Steam Early Access this fall.

Christian Allen, CEO and Creative Director at Serellan, who has worked on several high profile AAA games by Ubisoft, Bungie, and WB Games stated “We are very excited to bring Epsilon to the PC, Epsilon focuses on pre-planning, tactics, and gadgets over linear cinematic shoot-em up gameplay.”

Epsilon has been in development for just under a year, but the games art style has grown and evolved since the very beginning of Serellan. “The art team worked together to build a visually vibrant experience for Epsilon,” said Deane McGahan, Serellan’s Lead Artist, “I am happy that we were able to bring that style to Epsilon. We didn’t want to work on yet another green and brown shooter.”

In addition to the core gameplay team, Serellan has brought in some heavy guns from other areas. Craig Gilmore, an artist with credits from Marvel, DC Comics, Ubisoft, The Walking Dead, Revolution will be providing an accompanying graphic novel for the game, which will also serve as the in game cinematics, which delves into a storyline heavily inspired by themes in the ongoing crisis in Eastern Europe and the growing sense of Oligarchy in America in connection with groups like the Bilderberg’s. A unique cast of diverse team members, which in a first for a contemporary shooter, contains no Americans, will drive the story forward.

Music will be another strong focus, with Rich Douglas scoring an ethnically inspired soundtrack for a unique musical feel. Rich has worked on titles such as Insurgency and Shadowgate, and brings a unique flavor to the audio in the game.

Lastly, Serellan have announced a partnership with Razer for their full line of professional gaming hardware, with integration such as the Chroma colours planned. Previously, Serellan has announced that all Kickstarter backers of their last title, TAKEDOWN: Red Sabre will also be receiving Epsilon for free. Unlike past projects, Serellan is self-publishing Epsilon as a completely independent studio. The price point for Epsilon has yet to be announced, but Christian states, “It will be based on the amount of content launched with the Early Access version, and then adjusted as we work with the community to add more features, content, and gameplay based on their feedback.”

Serellan, which is a disabled veteran owned company, is working with several veteran groups to donate portions of the proceeds from the game to benefit veterans and active-duty military members.

Serellan plans to show initial demos at PAX Prime at the end of August at the Razer booth.
