Hybrid lands on Xbox Live Arcade today

The highly anticipated jetpack shooter Hybrid makes its release today on Xbox Live Arcade, and developer 5th Cell has released a new trailer to coincide. The game personally makes me think of Gears of War, if Gears of War had jetpacks. That’s not really a bad thing, the game looks pretty good, and it runs at a smooth 60 frames per second.

In addition to the jetpack element, the game is also a cover shooter. The game has 3 on 3 multiplayer action, with players being able to customize weaponry and abilities to personalize their play style.

“We’re excited to finally release Hybrid, 5TH Cell’s latest game, which continues its tradition of injecting new, innovative gameplay into the industry.” said Jeremiah Slaczka, Creative Director of the project. “Hybrid brings a unique twist to the shooter genre merging fast-paced gameplay with a persistent online world war where every battle matters.”

The game is available now, exclusive to XBLA and it will cost you 1200 MS points.
