Superhot's Mind Control Delete is a standalone expansion for the stylish shooter

When it launches in Early Access, Mind Control Delete will have no story - as not to "spoil too much too quickly" - and no advanced power-ups or new enemy types, so the developers can test how the vanilla game is balanced. For those interested in Early Access, the team have promised that those involved will get insight into some of "of the brand new gameplay systems that are going to be central to the game", including new weapons and abilities in addition to "Procedural rogue-like run generation baked into the core gameplay loop, enabling us to tell longer, more complex stories and deliver tons more of satisfying skill-based gameplay".

That's because Superhot: Mind Control Delete, which is the official name of the freebie expansion, will be entering Steam Early Access on PC in a couple of days, so players can try out the additional scenarios that will be introduced with it. It's designed as a rogue-like twist on the linear nature of the original SUPERHOT. The expansion is strictly non-VR, so don't worry about having a headset.

Superhot is a unique first-person shooter where time only goes forward if you're moving. This allowed for some very interesting gameplay full of dodging bullets and carefully thinking out your strategy while a bunch of people are shooting you in the face. "Good you can just stop".


Mind Control Delete is expected to take 9-12 months of development time, so expect it sometime next year (or even the next).

The original Superhot is available on PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One and PS4. The full release is roughly a year away but a barebones build will be on Steam Early Access tomorrow, 7th December, and grow over time.
