Wishlist the game on Steam right now:
Master the Glitch!
Adaptability will be paramount when it comes to triumphing over your opponents in Histera, for the Glitch shows no patience; it waits for no one! Before they know it, players will be rushing through humid prehistoric jungles, jumping over modern ruins in a war-torn city or hiding in the shadows of futuristic skyscrapers. The dynamics of the match can change at any given moment, though with an arsenal of weapons from different eras at their disposal, players have enough opportunity to prepare themselves for anything on the ever-changing battlefield!
Steam Next Fest Demo
During the upcoming Steam Next Fest, which will take place from October 9th to 16th, the demo of Histera will be available to download and play. Players can use this opportunity to experience the unpredictability of the Glitch for themselves. StickyLock, on its turn, will use this moment to get feedback on the game and prepare for a 2024 launch!
The Glitch: adjust your strategy to take advantage of the chaos caused by the Glitch. Master different terrains in the past, present and future.
Fast and Feverish: push yourself to the limit as you rush to adapt and gain (or keep!) the advantage every time the Glitch occurs. The team that can best adapt to Histera’s unpredictable, time-distorting mosh pit will claim victory!
High replayability: with the Glitch mechanic transforming the map in the midst of the action, no two rounds of Histera will play out the same.
Mix it up: battle through prehistoric caves, a WW2 city under siege and the neon bathed streets of a dystopian metropolis wielding anything from spears to machine guns as time periods collide.
Choose your weapon: use a wide variety of weapons to withstand the chaos wrought by the Glitch — will you stay in the shadows with a prehistoric hunting bow, or get up close with The Matchstick, a futuristic shotgun that can be loaded with incendiary rounds?
Versatile: perfect for easygoing fans of the shooter genre looking for something different as well as hardcore gamers seeking their latest challenge.
Be sure to wishlist Histera on Steam and don’t forget to experience the Glitch for the first time during the Steam Next Fest, available from October 9th to 16th.
