Experience Mind-Blowing Bullet Time Action with FZ9: Timeshift
Now available on Android & iOS
HANOI, Vietnam – March 21, 2017 – Are you ready for the most intense FPS to ever grace smartphone and tablet screens? Hiker Games’ mobile first-person shooter FZ9: Timeshift is now available on Android and iOS!
FZ9: Timeshift is all about headshots – with a perfectly-tuned “bullet time” gameplay mechanic and console-grade graphics. Play as Mak – an American soldier missing in action who finds himself able to freeze time. Wield fan favorites such as the Glock 17, AK-47, and M4A1 – and shoot your way through more than 30 single-player missions … unlocking special skills and abilities as you leave a trail of bodies in your wake. Need more firepower? The in-depth upgrade system makes it easy to either boost the capabilities of existing weapons or create your own from parts stashed in the Armory.
After the single-player campaign, it’s time to challenge yourself with a variety of bonus game modes including online-enabled time trials (players compete for the best time in each level), resource-gathering Cycle Missions, and even Weekly Challenges!
The World of FZ9: Timeshift
In 1954, nuclear and bioweapon threats force the United States to secretly develop “Project FZ” – culminating in the creation of a serum that allows soldiers to control time. In 1979, Project FZ produces its first fully functional sample – code-named “FZ9.” Mak, a government agent, is hand-picked to be the first test subject. Following the experiment, Mak is transported to the Oymyakon mountain range – where he enters hibernation…
Fast forward 40 years into the future, where the Cold War is nothing but a distant memory. The AS terror organization has taken advantage of the post-war chaos and has spread to Russia and surrounding countries. Headquartered in the Sakha Republic, the AS begins an aggressive expansion by taking over nearby territories – when it accidentally stumbles on the remains of Project FZ. Alerted to the project’s unplanned reactivation, the U.S. government immediately assembles a rescue mission to protect Project FZ … and bring Mak home.
“Mobile shooters have always been a challenge due to touch controls. The team was aware of that, so we spent extra development time making sure that aiming and shooting in FZ9: Timeshift were not only intuitive, but also ridiculously fun,” says Phuong Truong Duc, Hiker Games’ product lead.
“FZ9: Timeshift makes a strong case for first-person shooters on mobile. We do it by leveraging polished FPS mechanics on top of incredible visuals,” adds Phuong Truong Duc.
