Dead Ground would not be a game releasing in the current times if it didn’t have roguelike elements. The huge success of Hades, Enter the Gungeon et al has demonstrated that if there’s no procedural generation or upgrading between rounds, then is it a game at all?
A Tower Defense Spin
Dead Ground – releasing today on Xbox consoles, following prior PC and Switch forays – sees you defend your base from a variety of foes in this post-apocalyptic wasteland.
In this barren region, resources are scarce, and everyone is fighting for the same scraps and water. Your job is to collect such resources, defend against waves of oncoming foes in tower defense combat, and build up your base between rounds.
There are tons of guns in Dead Ground on Xbox
Each fresh playthrough will grant you a unique set of weapons, skills, and augmentations to make, all in the name of building the ultimate offensive and defensive combination.
As is the case with roguelikes, there is no shame in being overwhelmed and losing the run – the next procedurally generated playthrough is right around the corner, with you loaded with experience and knowledge.
- Procedurally generated levels – each playthrough is unique!
- Tons of randomized loot – guns, skills, augments
- Manage and upgrade your base
- Boss fights!
- Random events
- Unlock new heroes and artifacts to further customize the game
