Unleashing Creativity and Competition: How "Fragpunk" is Shaking Up Gaming on XBOX Consoles

It’s the logo of a shooter title, and video gaming’s shooter genre is one of the most enduring, competitive and high-profile types. Virtual reality games during much of this year’s Tokyo 2020 Olympics were shooters. The Xbox title Fragpunk is the Microsoft console’s answer to Riot Games’ Valorant. Fragpunk comes out this year for Xbox consoles and Windows PCs.

The Dawn of "Fragpunk" on XBOX Consoles

At the Xbox Game Showcase last week, when all the lights flared and gamers everywhere braced for a cavalcade of new games coming soon to Xbox machines, Microsoft revealed … Fragpunk. The free-to-play shooter from NetEase, the company behind the upcoming free-to-play Marvel Rivals, will offer a twist on the standard team-based hero shooter.

"Fragpunk" vs. "Valorant": A Creative Take on Team-Based Shooters

At heart, it’s a bursty game akin to Valorant: two teams square off, defending and attacking specific zones. The originality of Fragpunk, though, isn’t just the madly intense shootiness or the diverse cast of characters (there’s a sweet werewolf and a giant lady robot and a tiny angel, among others). It’s also a card game where teams get three cards per round that each set a specific rule for that round: bullets that steal life points! The battlefield is an ice rink! A madness mechanic.

An Experience Crafted for All Types of Gamers

The real joy of ‘Fragpunk’ is how the satisfying, precision-based gunplay of competitive shooters is combined with the user-friendly fun of arcade multiplayer, making it a far more approachable alternative to games such as ‘Valorant’. As well as constant updates and balance tweaks, the developers plan to add new characters and cards to the game via a battle pass system.

The Evolution of Gaming: Consoles as the Gateway to New Worlds

‘Fragpunk’, which will launch for both Xbox consoles and on PC, demonstrates not only what the future of gaming looks like, but also how consoles serve as portals to a limitless expanse of creativity. As Xbox grows its first-party content team to propel the console into the future, ‘Fragpunk’ is just the first step in its mission to bring innovative games – big and small, ambitious and diverse – to its platform.

What Sets XBOX Consoles Apart in Today's Gaming Landscape

Over the years, Xbox consoles have served as the cutting edge in home gaming, full of performance power, gameplay, and access to games for all types of players. With the release of ‘Fragpunk’ and other games revealed at the Xbox Game Showcase, Xbox does that even more.

The Future of Gaming on XBOX Consoles

With new Xbox features, technology and commitment to creating the ultimate gaming experience, the Xbox will continue to lead the gaming evolution. ‘Fragpunk’ is just the first skirmish of many to come for Xbox and its gamer community.

Amid the chaotic hustle and bustle of video games, ‘Fragpunk’ is a breath of fresh air, born out of the desire to create something new and original, that people want to play, something that can bring them together, all wrapped up in a simple premise: a strategic and creative shooter promising fun times for all gamers.
