Project Xandata is set to launch on Steam Early Access this March 22, 2022.
The Filipino-made game is a fast-paced 3v3 first-person shooter developed by Secret 6. The game development studio is based in the Philippines, San Francisco, and Madrid.
The studio has worked on a number of notable AAA game franchises like The Last of Us, Uncharted, Tomb Raider, and The Witcher 3.
“Together with a veteran lineup of talented developers, we’ve been working hard on Project Xandata for over 5 years now. It’s seen a lot of iterations. But now we are ready to showcase our own brand of competitive fps and further prove that the Philippines is capable of producing high-quality video games.”
Gene Gacho, Secret 6, Technical Director
Play with Possibilities in Xandaigdig
Project Xandata throws you into Xandaigdig, a sci-fi world inspired by Filipino culture. Become a Xandat and join action-packed team battles.
Xandats are armored combatants that use MagiTech, a mix of magic and technology. All this is made possible through the DIWATs or “Divine Weapons and Technology”. These are element-based artifacts left behind by the ancient civilizations of Xandaigdig.
“In Project Xandata, we made an effort to build our own lore that parallels a lot of modern Philippines. From Philippine mythology to Filipino pop culture, Xandaigdig is full of references that will be instantly familiar to the Pinoy gamer.”
Jem Bernaldez, Project Xandata Art Director
There are three classes to choose from, Agent, Juggernaut, and Marksman. Each of which offers unique abilities giving you a choice depending on your playstyle.
All classes have access to the same weapons. There are nine weapons and 18 possible perk combinations. You can customize load-outs in a way that suits your playstyle.
Additionally, you can change the way your Xandat looks with in-depth visual customization and a variety of unique cosmetics.
The 3v3 format emphasizes the need for individual skill and team synergy across all the game modes.
“The game is meant to be a live service that is constantly updated with new content such as game modes, events, maps, elements, and weapons to play around with.”
Mig Sevilla, Project Xandata Product Manager
