It takes something special to stand out art-style wise in today’s gaming landscape, such is the breadth of titles available. But one game that may have done just that is Aeon Must Die! which has arrived on Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Nintendo Switch consoles today.
Away from the lawsuit that is going on in the background between the developers, Aeon Must Die! is a futuristic sci-fi side scrolling beat ‘em up. Aeon has been betrayed and left for dead by those below him in the Void Armada. As a result, he is forced into merging with another body, your body. Thus, begins a power struggle in your mind and limbs as your attempt to regain control of your body from Aeon. Do you succumb to his wishes and destroy those that have wronged him, or show him another side to getting revenge?
Your decisions on who to kill or spare will alter the fate of the galaxy in ways which might not seem significant at first. As you travel through the city of Pantheon you must come face-to-face with those that betrayed Aeon in brutal and over-the-top combat.
As well as a stunning art-style, Aeon Must Die! promises a mind-blowing OST. For those that purchase the game before 28th October, you will also unlock the Wrathful King Set which includes a new skin for Aeon and his bike in the game.
For everyone else, Aeon Must Die! is available to download now from the Xbox Store priced at £15.74. Can the combat live up to the art itself? Stay tuned for our review to find out.
