Have you ever wanted to be a superhero? Rimlight Studios is offering you the chance to do just that with their incoming offering, ZHEROS.
This 3D beat ’em up sees you journey in a far away galaxy and may have all the hallmarks of a recent popular Disney film. In this one though, the enemies can actually shoot straight and you’ll have to strike hard and fast to smash the hordes of Dr. Vendetta. The evil Vendetta’s plans? Well, they’re to turn every living creature in the universe into an odd and hostile minion of course.
Play as one of the two ZHEROS squad members. Be the brave, strong and frankly stupid Mike or the agile, smart and eager Captain Dorian. Fight in the single player campaign or team up in co-op mode. Learn to rely on your punches, utilise an array of combos and use high-tech weaponry.
Oh, and did I mention the robots? There is also the opportunity to control your own mech.
The title is releasing on Xbox One on the 16th of January and will also be made available as part of the Games with Gold benefits for free in the second half of January.
