Developed by Arrowhead Game Studios, The Showdown Effect is a 2.5D competitive online shooter for PC in which players do battle armed with "everything and anything they can get their hands on".

Two editions of the game are available for pre-order - the standard offering and the Digital Deluxe Edition. Customers who purchase the latter will receive three bonus weapons skins, two bonus outfits and a free copy of Paradox's action-adventure game Magicka.

Those who order the standard edition in advance will receive just one bonus weapon skin, the Fusion Saber of Light.

A Showdown Effect tournament starring YouTube personalities Angry Joe, NorthernLion and Rage Gaming, as well as Arrowhead's Johan Pilestedt, will be streamed live from PdxCon in Reykjavik at 4pm GMT to promote the game's launch.
