Control Shift is a local-multiplayer game which pits players against one another in dramatic battles for control of territory.

Control Shift focuses on tactics, maneuvering and combat - creating a balance between strategy and agility. It features various couch co-op and versus game modes, for up to 4 players, split screen.

Gamepads such as the XBox Controller are recommended for play, but PC controls are also supported. Single-player modes exist for all you loners out there, though we do recommend that you get off your arse, make friends and play Control Shift!
