Unleash Fist and Firepower | Battle Shapers Punches the Early Access Clock Today

Posted October 03, 2023
Montreal, Canada - October 3rd, 2023 - Metric Empire is proud to launch its debut title into early access and introduce the gaming world to the exciting and beautiful FPS roguelite Battle Shapers. At EA launch, this roguelite FPS gives players a slice of kinetic combat, smooth gameplay, and impressive visuals that will make players wonder… is this really this indie studio’s first game?

Early Access Launch Trailer:

“We're really grateful to those who join us in Early Access to try out Battle Shapers, a project our passionate team is truly pouring their hearts into. In doing so, you'll also get to see how the game will grow as we work towards the v1.0 release in 2024”, says Pier-Luc Papineau, Design Director. “At the time Early Access begins, players will get to experience a portion of what the final game will offer, providing a great preview of the exciting content to come, some of which you can see in the team’s roadmap for the rest of the year.” 
Throughout Battle Shapers’ Early Access, Metric Empire will be sharpening the roguelite FPS experience with the plans they already have in mind, with attentive eyes on the reactions and observations that come from the community. The roadmap above gives a glimpse into what is planned up to December 2023 and the team has even more to share in the very near future.


  • FIGHT LASER WITH LASER — Gun down hordes of cunning enemy machines with relentless risk-taking, and bot-busting close-range warfare in which every kill fuels your combat capabilities. Learn to adapt to the Overlords’ dangerous attacks and retaliations that are thrown at you every step of the way.
  • COMBAT IS ONLY HALF THE BATTLE — Unlock new weapons, abilities and talents to permanently increase your survivability and combat potential with every run. Each tower promises different hidden upgrades and weapons to strengthen your journey further.
  • BUILD YOUR ‘CORE’ STRENGTH — Acquire fallen Overlords’ powers and watch as they change not just your abilities, but your appearance and gameplay. As your powers grow and change, be careful—with every defeated Overlord, Ada’s path becomes more and more difficult. 

Battle Shapers is being built with replayability at the forefront, giving players different ways to approach the various towers and their dynamic threats before they take on the Overlords, defeat them, and add their powers to their diverse arsenal. If you’re bested, failure is not the end! Upgrade your talents, lock (in) and (re) load for that next run with a few different choices and show these bombastic bots what you and Ada are made of.
