Bodycam is an upcoming hyper-realistic first-person shooter from Reissad Studio. In the era of realistic shooter experiences, it takes things to a completely new level. The developers describe the upcoming game as "the first ultra-realistic multiplayer," and this shows in the gameplay footage they have shared. The entire game is from the perspective of a body cam. Thanks to the new graphical tech of the Unreal Engine 5, it looks absolutely stunning and almost too real.

You would be surprised to know that the shooter is being worked on by only two developers. Their primary goal is to deliver a photorealistic and immersive gaming experience to fans that's unlike anything the industry has seen before.

Bodycam will officially launch in Early Access on June 7, 2024. That said, if you wish to give the game a shot right now, you are in luck. At the time of writing, a limited Playtest is underway. You can test it out before it opens to the public.

Check out the section below to know how you can join this limited-time Playtest and more about the PC hardware you will require to get the game running.

Since graphical realism is the goal, the game can be quite taxing on PC hardware. The developers went above and beyond to deliver a hyper-realistic graphical and audio experience from a first-person perspective. But this comes at a cost since the system requirements to get the game running well are quite advanced.
