Get shooting

Playable on Xbox One, Xbox Serties X|S, Nintendo Switch, Steam and mobile (PlayStation to follow), Vampire Survivors: Operation Guns is the latest expansion for poncle’s stupidly addictive roguelite auto-shooter. It seems the indie dev join forces with Konami and the Contra series, adding in a ton of guns and weaponry. There are an extra 22 in all, as well as some 11 new characters, another huge map and a soundtrack with both original and remoxed tracks in place. 

There’s a story too – if you ever actually come to Vampire Survivors for the story. We’re just here for the stupidly addictive gameplay…

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
