Holospark, the Seattle-based developer, just announced that they're launching the cooperative multiplayer-shooter Earthfall on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on July 13. In the game players must repel an alien invasion of the Pacific Northwest. In the ensuing battles they must rely on their squad, their tactical abilities, portable heavy weaponry, "instant" walls and other useful tools.
"We are excited to bring Earthfall to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on July 13. By partnering with Gearbox Publishing on a physical release, even more fans will be able to get their hands on Earthfall on launch day," said Russell Williams, CEO of Holospark in the official press release. "We've been hard at work on Earthfall since it first launched in Early Access last year, and we're really proud of what the game has become. Our thanks to everyone that played Earthfall and shared their feedback, whether that was on Steam or in-person. You've helped make the game what is it today."
Equally excited are partners, Gearbox Publishing, who aren't exactly unfamiliar with co-operative shooters.
"We are excited to be working with Holospark's talented group of veteran developers to bring the amazing co-op experience of Earthfall to retail this summer," added Steve Gibson, head of Gearbox Publishing.
Earthfall features ten missions spread out over two campaigns, and as players battle the deadly aliens they will also discover the reason behind the invasion, and the secrets the aliens are keeping. The game is currently available via Early Access on Steam.
A special Deluxe Edition, which includes exclusive character biohazard suits and weapon skins will also be available and will cost $39.99 USD (or equivalent).
