Deadrop: Dr. Disrespect's game has a name and first “gameplay”


Together, streamer Dr. Disrespect and some former Call of Duty and Halo developers founded the studio Midnight Society with big ambitions to create a new multiplayer shooter. Now Project Moon has a name: Deadrop. But the first “gameplay” is not yet impressive.

With the pompous words typical of the character Dr Disrespect, the shooter project was announced in December as “the best and most community-focused online PVP multiplayer experience the world has ever seen”.

Meanwhile known as “Project Moon”, the official name “Deadrop” has now been revealed. It is now also clear that it is in fact a multiplayer shooter with battle royale and extraction mechanics. The team also calls it a “Vertical Extraction Shooter” as matches are played in a tower and players fight their way up from the bottom until only the winner is left.

Players who secured one of the Founders Access Passes with $50 can try the first build released over the weekend called Snapshot. The minimum system requirements to be met are as follows:

Minimum system requirements:

  • Microsoft Windows 10
  • Intel Core i7-7700K 4.2 GHz
  • 32 gigabytes of RAM
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080
  • 20 gigabyte HDD/SSD

This preview includes the Player Hideout, which serves as a lobby before matches in the final game. An assault rifle can be taken from a workbench and tried out at different shooting ranges.

That's all this playable gameplay demo offers yet; however, the game is far from finished.

Reactions to the numerous videos from the demo have been mixed. Some are enthusiastic about the graphics with ray-traced effects, but many others find that it looks little better than a Call of Duty Mobile. Not much can be said about the gameplay itself, because the matches don't even take place as a single-player demo.

More snapshots are now to be published every six weeks, which should eventually provide more insights.
