About This Game

Outplay your opponents in Setback, a free-to-play first-person arena shooter where players wield weapons infused with time-altering technology. These weapons replace death with “setbacking”, where a player is rewinded back through time. Utilize a variety of weapons and consumable items while competing in movement-oriented game modes across several arenas.

A New Sport is Born

Discover an alternate future, where a company called Sci-Tech, sponsors intense arena battles that have become the world’s most popular sport. Mastering the use of setbacking and utilizing the arena to your advantage will decide if you leave the arena with a glorious victory or a bitter defeat. Sci-Tech may be master of the game, but you are the master of your own fate.

Movement is key!

Setback is here to redefine Run & Gun shooting!

Utilize movement mechanics like sliding, surface bashing, and climbing to gain an advantage over your adversaries. Master an expanding assortment of powerful consumable items to introduce a little chaos and overpower the competition.

Customize your Athlete!

Make it personal by changing every aspect of your Setback athlete. Setback features robust and expansive character customization options. From top to toe, you have full control.

Classic Game Modes With A Twist

Compete in a variety of classic rotating game modes with a unique twist. Outwit your opponents in “bomb tag” where speed and split second decision making matter above all else. Defend territories in “Safe Zone or outpace the opposition in “check-point race”. With ever changing game modes you must constantly adapt your playstyle if you wish to succeed.
