If you wish to embrace the heat and get involved in some firefighting, the options on the table are a little limited. Aside from the recently announced Fire Commander in fact, those options have pretty much burnt their way through to hell. But that may well change as Embr prepares to leave PC Early Access this summer – dropping onto Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch at the same time. 

Straight out of the Curve Digital team, Embr looks set to deliver some smoking hot frenetic firefighting to console and PC this summer, giving players the opportunity to come together with your mates via online multiplayer to have a crack at fighting fires, rescuing residents and living out the firefighter’s life. At least the humorous side of that life. 

Developed by Muse Games and covered by the Curve Digital team, In Embr, players either take on the game solo or work together in online teams tackling blaze after blaze to earn tips from clients, picking up the ever-so-crucial 5-star rating in order to earn cash, upgrade tools, and hopefully become the ultimate ‘have-a-go hero’ firefighter. Want to make a little money on the side? Then you can also deliver takeout food on the fly with ‘Embr Eats’. Embr really is the ‘uber’ experience for anyone who wants to get to grips with the gig economy.

As Howard Tsao, Team Lead at Muse Games explains, ultimately Embr is one of a growing number of games that thrives on making failing fun…

“It’s safe to say this was never designed to be your typical firefighting simulator,” adds Tsao. “Embr’s role is to focus a comedic eye on where the gig economy is headed – the ultimate end we’re all hurtling towards, where your everyday person on the street takes a crack at some of the most important, specialised, and crucial jobs for a bit of extra cash. The end result is just as hectic as it sounds and, within the relative safety of a game, an amazing amount of fun. We can’t wait to launch it fully on PC and, just as importantly, bring it to a brand new audience on console later this year.”

Embr has been playing the Steam Early Access card for a little while, but has been treated to no less than three major updates in the course of the last year. When it comes to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC in full though, there will be content options aplenty. 

We’ll keep you updated. Let us know what you think though.
