XBLA Shooter 'Hybrid' Beta Signups Open Now

Posted Tue Mar 20, 2012 at 11:30 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The tactical shooter will be available this summer, but select players will get a head start on it.

'Hybrid' is an upcoming tactical shooter for the Xbox Live Arcade that looks like it could be incredibly cool. You'll find plenty of guns and other equipment to play with as well as a unique cover switching system. Oh, and jetpacks.

The game's developer, 5th Cell, says that the team "strives to give players a completely new gameplay experience never seen before in the genre." If the name 5th Cell is familiar, that's probably because of the company's massive hit 'Scribblenauts.' Needless to say, this is a step in an entirely different direction for them.

You can sign up for the Beta on the 'Hybrid' website.
