Tech entertainment company Skyrocket launches its RECOIL multiplayer battlefield game with a creative campaign from L.A. agency Battery. The campaign stars Michael Madsen as a bad-ass, noir-like superhero named Striker who imparts his battlefield wisdom and tactical skills to a new generation of RECOIL fighters. RECOIL players engage in an entire new imaginative arena of play; one that transforms the real world into an immersive, GPS enabled battlefield.

Directed by Alan White of Bob Industries, this Madsen-as-Striker spot, “Striker’s World,” is the first in a series which will roll out this year.
RECOIL turns any outdoor space into a digitally enhanced, multiplayer battlefield. Using in-ear surround sound, haptic response weaponry, and smartphone integrated gameplay, players are able to spawn into the middle of the most immersive battlefield they’ve ever experienced.
