It appears that deadmau5 not only knows to compose and create good electronic music but also knows to work in one of the most popular game engines, Unreal 4. Throughout a regular stream, he has showcased his new project, a first-person shooter game he and his team have been working on.
Deadmau5 has also released a lot of tracks in Dota 2, and some of them became very popular back in the days.
Even though he’s known as a DJ and musician, it appears that deadmau5 is ready to open new doors. In a recent Twitch Stream, he presented a bit of gameplay of his new game, which looks quite promising at first look. It seems like a sci-fi first-person arena shooter that already has its core mechanics up and running, so it’s a matter of time when he’ll finish the game.
The game will be client-server, and he has also stated that the servers are already 128 tick that shall contribute to much fairer gameplay. No lag spikes or latency issues should appear, but it remains to be spoken when the game fully releases.
Below you can find the gameplay video.
In the video, he also talks about improving the Sniper by adding a bullet drop and bullet lead. He has also stated that it’s a baby that he wants to play with, and no help is needed regarding developers. He has announced the team working on this game in a thread on Reddit.
