We’ve known for some time that Earth’s Dawn would be crashing onto Xbox One, PS4 and PC soon, but what we didn’t know was when. But we do now!
Arriving on PS4 come November 1st 2016 and then on Xbox One a day later (2nd Nov 2016), Earth’s Dawn will launch only in the USA, Canada and South America with a PC version following those up soon after. $29.99 is all you need to find to get involved in the action.
Developed by oneoreight, Earth’s Dawn had previously released in Japan as Earth Wars and mixes fast-paced, side-scrolling 2D action mechanics, with unique dark-edge anime visuals, and a whole host of weapon and skills customization as it delivers a deep and unique gameplay experience.
About Earth’s Dawn:
Earth’s Dawn takes place after the Earth was decimated by an invasion from an alien race known to humans as E.B.E. The E.B.E. moved across the planet, consuming anything in their path, and proved impervious to existing weapons. Ahead of the impending annihilation, a breakthrough was made – the E.B.E. was susceptible to damage by weaponry designed using its very own technology. The power to fight back was now in the hands of an elite fighting force.
Combat in Earth’s Dawn offers a huge amount of depth, with a layered system that will appeal to both light and more hardened players. Basic attacks can easily be strung together to pull off combos, while tying these to the analogue stick will instigate launchers, aerials, and sliding attacks. Timing a dash during a combo will extend its length and finisher moves will dispatch enemies with flair. Players are evaluated after battles and ranked according to expertise and skill, and may then use the points awarded to enhance and level up their hero.
