Saber Interactive and its subsidiary Old School Games have announced God Mode, a third-person shooter set to come out in early 2013. The 4-player cooperative game has you taking the mantle of a child of Hades and shooting your way through the hellish landscape.

The game promises RPG elements like collecting experience and gold for customization and equipment, and match modifiers that will change the win conditions without warning. In the trailer, a few modifiers are shown such as Dwarfs, which makes all enemies smaller, faster, and weaker, and Hammer of Gods, which grants a powerful melee weapon to a random player.

"It doesn't take itself too seriously," Saber Interactive's Matthew Karch told IGN. "It is lighthearted fun and focuses on arcade style action over a deep story. I think this makes sense for downloadable games, where players are looking for some quick, thoughtless action."
