Welcome to Project Nyx


Project Nyx aims to offer shooter fans something a little different. Dash between fast-paced ground combat and frantic six-degrees-of-freedom space battles as you blast your way through diverse environments and game modes. Master the different classes, each with their own unique gadgets, abilities, and playstyles, and grow your reputation from space pleb to galactic celeb.

Work together with friends to make stylish plays, stalk the battlefield as a lone wolf, or sow chaos throughout the map using your wits. No matter the path you choose, you will learn to revel in the insane moment-to-moment gameplay.

Become acquainted with Nyx’s out-of-this-world style by jumping into fan favourite game modes such as Deathmatch, the zone conquest mode Control, and high-octane Capture the Flag to prepare for our unique take on a Battle Royale-style mode and further experimental additions.

Join the project’s development journey today as it evolves from a humble prototype into the kind of game you won’t want to put down. The first couple of milestones will see the introduction of a few basic game modes, the various classes, and the backend systems that’ll run the whole show. Once we establish the foundations, you can expect development to ramp up!

Classes


*It's important to note that the information provided below is a conceptual overview of potential classes. They are yet to be fully implemented. Like all aspects of Nyx, classes are subject to change dramatically based on numerous factors, such as playtesting feedback, logistics, balance, and so on.

Hunter

You’re no stranger to battle. You know that fancy tricks and bulky armour mean nothing to a well-placed bullet, especially if that bullet brings friends. That’s why you lean on your collection of weaponry, trusty grappling hook, and scanners to win the day. Good luck out there, space cowboy.

Survivor

When a job comes up, you always know exactly what to wear -- enough armour to put a dropship to shame. With the addition of a larger power cell, you can shield a whole squad, charge around the battlefield with an ally on your back, and easily become any foe’s biggest problem.

Explorer

Every squad needs an agent of chaos. Light armour doesn’t make you weak, it creates opportunities. You rely on your speed and wits to outmanoeuvre or outsmart opponents. Holograms, disruption tools, and hacking abilities give you everything you need to make proper big-brain plays.

Assassin

Speed, agility, and precision are your tools of the trade. Intricate training has forged you into an elegant weapon, striking foes with ruthless efficiency. You’re more difficult to detect, which gives you time to stalk and pick off weaker prey. Your energy bow, assorted arrow types, grappling hook, and inherent mobility make you the ultimate predator.


Future Classes

Marauder

Do you consider yourself a space viking? Marauders live for the thrill of combat. You collect scars like they’re medals. You have a small personal shield that can be thrown to assist allies or smash enemies in the face. Every hit your shield takes empowers your abilities. Smash through enemy lines, soak up damage, and expunge your collected power to wreak havoc.

Technician

You’re a tech wizard who knows a thing or two about medicine. When someone takes a hit, you have the power to patch them up. Your multi-use drone can jet around the battlefield assisting your squad, collecting pickups, and running interference. Combining high mobility and nano-swarm healing abilities, you’ll be the true hero behind any victory.

Planned Features

  • Seamless transitions between ground and space combat.
  • Multiple classes with varying abilities, characteristics, and playstyles.
  • Exciting game modes that offer unique twists on fan favourites and pave the way for numerous experimental additions.
  • A universe brimming with personality, stories, and fascinating technology.
  • Mod support (still in the planning stages, release date unknown).
