Judgement Day: New rogue-lite, top-down arcade shooter will be released in autumn
Wild River, the gaming label of EuroVideo Medien, is planning to release their new rogue-lite, top-down shooter Battle Planet – Judgement Day in the 3rd quarter of 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The Munich based publisher is expanding its portfolio with the innovative action title targeted mainly at older teenagers and adults. This is thanks to their collaboration with Hamburg based game developer, THREAKS, who has created an arcade shooter in a unique sci-fi setting.
As a wanted criminal who has escaped from a crashed transport ship, players must fight their way through approaching clusters of police, military, aliens and robots in an endless orgy of explosions, fire and brute force. Players must navigate a boundless battlefield in top-down perspective – which is the surface of entire planets which rotate according to the players’ movements. This results in fast-paced gameplay which makes Battle Planet – Judgement Day a thrilling action adventure that challenges players in a unique way.
The ultimate goal is survival. Once a planet is done, players use a transport capsule to travel to the next star and discover an entire galaxy of procedurally generated worlds each with dynamically shifting biospheres. On their journey, they acquire new upgrades which gradually make them stronger.
“We were totally enthralled with Battle Planet – Judgement Day from the start because the gameplay is so well done and the top-down perspective on each very different planet provides a constant source of variety,” says Marc Wardenga, Head of Games at EuroVideo Medien. “With this title, we are also reaching a target group that will complement our current profile.”
“The game works on multiple levels and delivers absolute non-stop action,” explains Sebastian Bulas, Managing Director at THREAKS. “We wanted to create a high-speed space shooter game that never gets boring. I can say with confidence that we have.”
Through the procedurally generated worlds in Battle Planet – Judgement Day, the changing planets, enemies and weapons are always different so a gaming session is never the same as the last. The graphics are consistently in 4K resolution and meet the highest standards. Battle Planet – Judgement Day will be released in the 3rd quarter of 2019 in German, English, French, Spanish, Italian.
