It’s been through a few months of intense development as well as a name change, but finally, Rogue Stormers developer, Black Forest Games is in a position to announce a release date.
So, wait, Rogue Stormers? Well it’s an action-packed 3D co-op platform-shooter. It’s got roguelike and RPG elements with crazy graphics, allowing up to 4 players in on the action at once.
The game will combine run’n’gun gameplay in the Metal Slug style, offering twin-stick controls in an online or couch co-op mode of play. Ravensdale is under threat by the ultimate evil. In order to beat him you must fight your way through seven increasingly challenging levels. If you die, you’ll be back at square one, although any earned perks and packs are yours for keeps, making it a little easier to get back to where you expired.
The game is designed in such a way that allows the levels to be layered and combined to create meaningful combinations with infinite replayability. There will be an ever growing cast of enemies, hazards and loot layered within each chunk, generating incredible diversity. Rogue Stormers will feature tons of different upgrades and weapons that will cause each new session to play in a unique fashion, depending on which weapons or upgrades you pick and get.
Five character classes with their own skills and base weapons are included and as you delve into the vast undercity of Ravensdale, you’ll learn more and more about the history, it’s citizens and the tragic backgrounds of the five heroes who took arms to save it. How you tackle this sprawling city will be the key to saving Ravensdale.
Will you go toe-to-toe with your enemies, block attacks or simply blast everything to smithereens? It’ll be completely up to you when Rogue Stormers comes to your Xbox One from the 7th of October.
