Scavengers may have been exploring the dystopian future in Deep Sky Derelicts on PC for a couple of years, but now the most complete version of it is launching on all major platforms. So prepare to delve into this Definitive Edition of the tactical rogue-like RPG on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Deep Sky Derelicts: Definitive Edition looks to deliver turn-based card combat across the galaxy, at a time when mankind has torn apart. It’s a grim future where the human society has been separated into two distinct classes and, as such, you’re going to be playing the part of a poor outcast living off the scraps garnered from abandoned stations and ships in space. Word has it that there’s a legendary alien ship within the Deep Sky sector and finding it could be the ticket to enjoying a much more cosy existence.
After recruiting a team of fellow scavengers, the search begins and you’ll end up exploring decrepit space stations, hazardous planets, and derelict alien ships. Defeating any monsters lying in wait is vital in order to acquire loot and then be able to upgrade your gear, as well as enhance the skills and equipment of the team. Furthermore, there’s sure to be plenty of replay value through the two main modes – Story and Arena – due to the rogue-like elements, endless customisation options and procedurally-generated content.
As this is the definitive edition, it includes two pieces of DLC in the form of New Prospects and Station Life; both of which bring a smattering of new gameplay features, character upgrades, improvements, missions, and more. Should Deep Sky Derelicts: Definitive Edition sound like a game you need to add to your gaming library, you’ll be glad to know that it’s available for £20.99 via the Xbox Store – and on other digital stores for the aforementioned platforms.
