After recently releasing on Google Stadia, it’s time for the 13AM Games team to deliver their cooperative kaiju beat ‘em up to other formats. If you’re a gamer who deals in Xbox, PlayStation, Switch or PC play, it’s time to bear witness the Dawn of the Monsters.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC, with the game also playable on Google Stadia, Dawn of the Monsters is a new beat ’em up that brings forth cooperative kaiju gameplay, as playable behemoths look to liberate all.
It’s priced at £24.99 from the Xbox Store for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S – and you should expect to see the game sitting at roughly that same price on other formats. Should you dip into the wallet and pay up the asking price, you’ll find yourself thrown into a land full of bone-crunching combat, tons of depth, RPG-styled upgrades and, best of all, destructible environments.
Dawn of the Monsters has you playing as one of four unique characters – Megadon, Ganira, Aegis Prime, and Tempest Galahad – as you work your way through no less then thirty-five different missions, beating back oncomers, performing the most brutal of attacks and honing your finest beat ’em up skills.
It’s a game that relishes the world of combat, with Rage Attacks, Cataclysm Attacks and finishing Executions all ready to be fired off at any point. When you include the fact that you can fully customise your Dawn of the Monsters game with DNA augmentations and totally destroy the real-world inspired locations you are fighting in, it’s easy to see why there is such a draw and appeal to what 13AM Games have created.
When you include local cooperative opportunities, some next-gen Series X|S optimisation and Smart Delivery (you’ll be playing the best Xbox version of the game depending on your system) and Dawn of the Monsters fast becomes even more appealing.
You’ll be able to get involved for yourself by visiting the digital store of your choosing, with the Xbox Store providing the downloads required for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S players. Dawn of the Monsters is also available on PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, PC (Steam) and Google Stadia.
