Starward Rogue is on Xbox, PlayStation and Switch

Yep, we’ve got another twin-stick shooter looking to fight for your cash. But will you be shooting your way through Starward Rogue on console?

Get shooting with Starward Rogue

The creation of Arcen Games, with the might of the Klabater team behind publishing, Starward Rogue goes shooting and blasting its way to console, delivering some acclaimed sci-fi shoot ’em up action to Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch. 

Previously only available on PC (Very Positive reviews on Steam since launch in 2016), it’s now time for the console masses to get in on the action. And when we say ‘action’, we really mean it. See, Starward Rogue is a bullet-hell twin-stick shooter and that means you’ll be left to try and fight your way through the masses, dodging, surviving, as best you can. In a way, it’s a bit like Go Mecha Ball on Game Pass. Just different.

Your ultimate goal in Starward Rogue is to navigate the Megalith. This is a roguelite labyrinth situated on the side of a star. It’s a place full of death and destruction. Bit of luck then that you’ve got the tools you need available for the job in hand. Weapons are plentiful, perks equally so. There are a ton of upgrades in Starward Rogue as well. Combine those and you should well find a loadout that suits. 

Key features

If you’ve played Starward Rogue on PC previously, you’ll know what to expect as it lands on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S (optimised), PlayStation and Nintendo Switch. If not, get a nose at the huge list of key features. 

  • Play as a “head in a mech” harvested from the neck of everyone’s favorite Space Hydra.

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. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
