Headup Games have been a little quiet of late, but now they are back with a bang as they confirm the release date for their post-apocalyptic sea monster hunt – Earth Atlantis.
The chance to head under the waves and explore an underwater world full of sea monsters shouldn’t be an opportunity you’ll wish to pass up and Headup Games can today confirm that Earth Atlantis will be arriving on Xbox One and PS4 from the 1st June 2018.
An action-filled shooter that has already got a few awards under its belt – the “Vermilion Gate” Award (Best in Show) during the 5th BitSummit 2017 in Kyoto, as well as the “Excellence in Art” Award during BIC Festival 2016 in Busan – it tells the tale of when a climate shift struck Earth and marked the start of civilizations downfall. With the world now completely flooded, it is only possibly to continue life beneath the ocean.
But machines have found a new place in this underwater environment, too, and now roam the seas as terrifying hybrids of creatures and machine. It’ll be up to you to board one of four individual submarines – each with different weaponry and advantages – and hunt down huge bosses in an intense retro style side-scrolling shooter and rediscover humankind’s sunken world. You never know, you may even face a Megalodon.
With a unique visual style comprises old sketches and ensuring that we get to look back at a time when sea exploration commenced and was believed to be inhabited by fantastic, yet dangerous creatures, Earth Atlantis should appeal to any side scrolling shooting fan out there.
