Rising Star heroes join the fight in 88 Heroes for free on Xbox One


It’s 1988, on 8th August at 8.08am and a mad man is holding the world to ransom. With 88 heroes on hand to save the Earth and only 88 minutes to do so, a few extra helpers would do nicely. Well fortunately for us, that’s exactly what’s arrived on store and they don’t even want a fee for their services!

Dr. H8 has a shed load of thermo-nuclear weapons ready to fire upon the world, unless the sum of $88 octillion is paid to him. The roster of wacky heroes is already huge and they all have their unique quirks to set them apart from each other. A free DLC has appeared to increase the roster further with an all-star cast of characters from other titles belonging to Rising Star Games. The standouts of this eight pack of characters are the instantly recognisable Rusty from SteamWorld Dig and the beastly Gunborg from Zombie Vikings.

The full list of new playable heroes is as follows –

  • The Conga Masters (Conga Master)
  • Vamp Girl (I Want To Be Human)
  • Eyas (The Land of Eyas)
  • The Ninja (Ninja Shodown)

Those looking to add these less than conventional heroes to 88 Heroes from various dimensions of the Rising Star universe can do so for zero cost. The RSG Champions DLC absolutely free to grab from the Xbox Games Store!
