The aliens are here, so head to the nearest outpost and put your twin-stick shooting skills into action for Outpost Delta. It’s the newest metroidvania style shooter on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
In the side-scrolling action-packed Outpost Delta, you’ll take on the role of Delta, an emergency defense drone located on the outpost of an abandoned research station that’s somehow gone unnoticed for years. Now though, it’s under attack from an alien race known as the Klaath, who want to infiltrate the station. Alongside an AI companion, Delta must find creative new ways to annihilate the Klaath in order to protect the research held within this place.
As the alien hordes attack, you have the rather unique ability to control the station’s gravity which enables the opportunity to roam around or engage combat in zero-g mode. This provides a selection of innovative solutions to fend off the Klaath, such as turning up the force to blast enemies into air or dropping them to crush the aliens on the floor. Delta also has an array of unlockable, upgradable weapons and armor at her disposal that can be customised to create an unstoppable arsenal. Everything you do could make the difference in regards to whether you stay alive.
Outpost Delta’s features include:
- Classic platforming blended with twin-stick shooting
- Explore an interconnected space station under attack by a relentless horde
- Control the station’s gravity using zero-g mode for stylish combat maneuvering
- Discover an arsenal of weapons and tools and equip the right ones for the job
- Upgrading Delta’s suit to help survive the might of the Klaath
