Toy soldier shooter HYPERCHARGE: Unboxed coming to Xbox on May 31st

MANCHESTER, UK – May 1, 2024 – Hypercharge: Unboxed, the acclaimed shooter starring sentient action figures from developer Digital Cybercherries, rallies the troops for a Friday, May 31, 2024, launch on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One with pre-orders beginning today.

Inspired by films like Toy Story and Small Soldiers, Hypercharge: Unboxed is the first and third-person shooter many have always dreamed of! Grab friends, complete objectives, defend the Hypercore against waves of weaponized toys, and defeat Major Evil together in the story campaign.


Hypercharge welcomes both parents and children into a vibrant world of toys, empowering adults to relive the joy of their own childhoods and make new unforgettable memories with their children.

Hypercharge: Unboxed features a full story campaign mode, which can be played solo offline or with up to four players online in co-op or local split-screen. The Xbox release will feature cross-platform support for the PC version, so plastic heroes can save the day alongside friends.  Plastic generals can also employ bots as AI teammates or opponents.

Toy soldiers that feel more competitive than collaborative can dominate an array of PvP modes for brief bouts of action figure mayhem! Defend the Hypercore with friends, survive waves of relentless hordes of weaponized toys, or relish a good old-fashioned free-for-all rumble!

“Hypercharge: Unboxed is the perfect marriage of nostalgic charm and contemporary shooter design,” said Joe Henson, Creative Gameplay and Marketing Director at Digital Cybercherries. “It’s a love letter to our childhood, where we enjoyed smashing action figures together and creating epic battles in our head – only now we can realize that vision in a fully interactive 3D world. Whether you’re playing solo or want to connect with friends, Hypercharge: Unboxed provides the perfect jolt of 90s energy!”

About Hypercharge: Unboxed


There was once an ancient line of action figures, who created a magical power source that would allow humans to keep their favorite childhood memories of their toys. This ancient power source is known as the Hypercore. Inside the Hypercore are the beloved memories of our favorite toys. If Major Evil destroys it, these memories will disappear forever. Defend it with everything you’ve got, or see our cherished toys turn into lost treasures of the past!

Hypercharge is the first and third-person shooter action figure game you’ve always dreamed of! Grab your friends, complete objectives, defend the Hypercore against waves of weaponized toys, and defeat Major Evil together in the story campaign!
