Fight, survive and uncover the truth in Atomfall, launching 2025

A journey across the irradiated English countryside is coming to PlayStation, Xbox, and PC next year

OXFORD (June 9, 2024)Rebellion, the independent video game studio behind the smash hit Sniper Elite and Zombie Army franchises, has today revealed Atomfall, a brand new survival-action game set in the rolling British countryside. Announced live at Xbox’s Summer Showcase earlier today, Atomfall is inspired by the real-life events of the 1957 Windscale disaster in the North of England, picking up the story five years after the fire in a fictionalized quarantine zone.


Atomfall will launch in 2025, coming day one to Game Pass. It will also be available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.


Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion, commented: “In Atomfall, we wanted to take the picturesque British countryside and flip it on its head. So, this classic picture postcard setting now serves as an eerie backdrop for a dark mystery that players will have to piece together for themselves. Atomfall is a new story based on a real disaster and told in the speculative fiction style typical of 1950s/60s Britain. So, players can expect to see post-war Britain, Cold War paranoia, and mysterious folk horror blended with elements inspired by classic British sci-fi like Day of the Triffids, Doctor Who, and The Quatermass Experiment. Growing up in Britain, this style of fiction influenced many of our team and really plays to Rebellion’s strengths as a British games studio. We can’t wait for players to uncover the mystery of Atomfall.


Ben Fisher, Associate Head of Design at Rebellion commented: “The quarantine zone in Atomfall has been cut off from the outside world for some time. This means that you’re dealing with a bunch of people that have been left to their own devices and it’s safe to say that things have gone a bit ‘Lord of the Flies’ in places. You’ll need to explore this hostile world and navigate bizarre characters, mysticism, cults, and murky government agencies. Your interactions with these are important and will shape your story. Investigate clues to piece together events, be prepared to scavenge to survive, and remember that every encounter is a matter of life and death.

Atomfall is an original title that incorporates single-player gameplay and story elements in ways Rebellion has never attempted before. The studio will be revealing more about Atomfall soon.


For the latest news and updates, please be sure to follow Atomfall on our new social channels: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

Find Out What It Will Take to Save the ‘Creatures of Ava’ in an All-New Story & Gameplay Trailer


Warsaw, Poland - June 6th, 2024 — What does it mean to preserve something? While our human inclination is to protect the weak and aid the vulnerable, will players dare to let go in the face of adversity when the struggle becomes too much? These dilemmas and more are explored in Creatures of Ava, the upcoming ‘creature saver’ title from 11 bit studios, co-developed by Spanish studios Inverge and Chibig aiming to shake up the creature collector genre.

The vibrant biomes of Ava are teeming with life and colors, but the planet faces a grave threat. An infection known as the 'withering' is spreading, threatening to wipe out all life forms. It's up to you to understand and stop this process.


Creatures of Ava is set to release on Xbox Series X|S and Windows 11 PC in 2024. The game will be available on PC Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for consoles upon release.

Revelry and Piety Take Center Stage in Latest Kingdom Come: Deliverance II Trailer

Dive headfirst into the Middle Ages with today's Saints and Sinners trailer 

 

Larkspur, Calif. (June 7, 2024) - Kingdom Come: Deliverance II, the long-awaited sequel to the award-winning action-RPG, revealed a brand-new trailer this year at Summer Game Fest.

Today’s Saints and Sinners trailer showcases some of the adventures and perils players will face as they journey through a world of vengeance, betrayal, and self-discovery.


Watch the Saints and Sinners trailer on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/utArRqtkd0Y

Today's trailer features Father Godwin, a debauched village priest. Godwin is the black sheep of a noble family - concealing a scarred warrior's soul beneath his cassock, he returns home to face his past while undergoing tests of his faith in the fires of war.

A true open-world RPG experience, Kingdom Come: Deliverance II lets players approach quests however they choose, shaping Henry – the main character – to their actions and changing the world around them.


About Kingdom Come: Deliverance II:

Set in the beautiful and dangerous world of 15th Century Bohemia (Central Europe), Kingdom Come: Deliverance II picks up from where the first title left off, putting players into the chain mail boots of Henry, the dedicated son of a blacksmith, on a quest to avenge his murdered parents.

Spread across two maps (twice the size of the previous game) - from the majestic Trosky Castle through to the bustling mining town of Kuttenberg - players will traverse a meticulously crafted medieval landscape while navigating through a kingdom torn apart by civil war.

The medieval combat system of Kingdom Come: Deliverance II has been revamped, making it more accessible while staying true to its nature as a depiction of real medieval martial arts, from meticulous swordplay to the use of deadly ranged weaponry.

Join Henry on his quest for redemption and revenge in 1403 Bohemia later this year and remember: audentes fortuna iuvat.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance II will release on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S later this year.

Capcom Delivers a Show to Remember at Summer Game Fest 2024 Showcase

The hottest season of gaming has officially begun and Capcom kicked things off in style at the Summer Game Fest 2024 Showcase with more reveals for Monster Hunter Wilds™, including a deeper look at the characters and creatures Hunters will encounter as they venture into the Forbidden Lands, four new Year 2 characters for Street Fighter™ 6, and the long-awaited release date for Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess™!

Stay tuned for more news coming out of Summer Game Fest Play Days and read on for additional details about each announcement below!

New trailers for each game are available on YouTube (Monster Hunter™, Street Fighter™, Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess, and Capcom USA).

A Living World of Adventure Beckons in the Monster Hunter Wilds ‘The Hunter’s Journey’ Trailer

The latest Monster Hunter Wilds trailer, “The Hunter’s Journey” gave Summer Game Fest livestream viewers a deeper look at the Hunter’s foray into the Forbidden Lands, including the colorful characters and a mysterious crescent-shaped mountain players will encounter as story moments seamlessly blend into gameplay. As the hunter delves deeper into unknown territory, local wildlife including the treacherous new Balahara Leviathan monster demonstrated how hunters must adapt and harness new techniques to coexist in the Windward Plains region’s volatile conditions. In the ferocious lightning storms that herald a change between the harsh dry season and abundant monsoon season, an even greater threat was glimpsed bolting behind the billowing sand clouds.

Monster Hunter series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto joined Geoff Keighley on stage to confirm Monster Hunter Wilds will support crossplay across PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. Please visit the official site for more information. Tsujimoto also notified fans eagerly awaiting the highly anticipated title’s 2025 release that Capcom will debut its next trailer at Gamescom Opening Night Live, and Monster Hunter Wilds will be playable for the first time on the Gamescom 2024 show floor.

The Wild Beauty of the Windward Plains

While traversing the sandy dunes of the Windward Plains, hunters and local wildlife alike must be cautious of falling victim to the quicksand traps of the newly revealed Balahara. The Forbidden Lands play host to multiple packs of large monsters such as the Balahara, who can be seen in the trailer tracking and overwhelming the previously announced Doshaguma. These Leviathans secrete mucus along their serpentine bodies to deftly maneuver through the earth, hurl attacks at their foes, and create pitfall traps capable of shifting the sands of battle in their favor. As these formidable monsters seek to scrape out a niche within this harsh ecosystem, territorial disputes with other large monsters can erupt at a moment’s notice. Hidden within the region’s frequent sandstorms, a mysterious apex predator lurks, waiting to shock its prey with an electric fury.

A Seamless World of Extremes

Monster Hunter Wilds seamlessly flows from story sequences to gameplay to tell the dynamic and engrossing story of the hunter leading the Forbidden Lands Research Commission as they explore vibrant ecosystems filled with monsters and extreme environments. After stepping off their ship headed for the Windward Plains, hunters begin to unravel the many mysteries contained within Forbidden Lands, such as the massive crescent-shaped mountain dominating the landscape. That journey will compel players to team up with other Hunters to discover the relationship between this world and the people who inhabit it, standing shoulder to shoulder against new and fearsome foes.

More information regarding Monster Hunter Wilds will be revealed at Gamescom Opening Night Live, alongside the title’s first playable demo on the Gamescom 2024 show floor.

Prepare for the Vicious Seethe to be Unleashed as Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess Releases Worldwide on July 19, 2024

During the Summer Game Fest 2024 Showcase, viewers were invited to dive deeper into the world of Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess with a world premiere of brand-new gameplay and the reveal of the fast-approaching global release date of July 19, 2024, as well as additional platform support on Xbox One and PlayStation 4! Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess will drop day one on Xbox Game Pass for console, PC, and Cloud, and on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam. Pre-orders for the game are available now (Xbox, PlayStation, Steam).

In this unique, Japanese-inspired, and visually captivating game, players will play as the protagonist Soh to make sharp strategic decisions and use skillful dancing sword actions, while working with rescued villagers and the Maiden Yoshiro, to overcome the challenges ahead. During the day, explore the village and purge the defilement by rescuing villagers and wisely assigning them roles and positions to help attack the Seethe at night. During the night, the villagers will fight alongside Soh to protect Yoshiro from the swarm of Seethe. The trailer showcased the Spirit State and new gameplay with a Festering Seethe. When Soh runs out of health, Soh will enter a Spirit State where the player cannot fight and can only give commands to villagers to protect Yoshiro. The Festering Seethe will call forth swarms of Seethe, so cooperating with your villagers is a necessity. In both situations, players will be able to experience the intense merge of action and strategy. Face the formidable Festering Seethe, purge the village’s defilement, and return peace to the mountain.

Those who pre-order the game will receive exclusive in-game items, including the Mazo Talisman “Walking Basket” and “Astral Projection,” which can be equipped to Soh, as well as a digital mini artbook featuring never-before-seen concept art created for the game.

To stay tuned for the latest news on Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess as it heads toward launch, please check out the official website and follow the game on X!

Chaotic Roguelite Lucky Tower Ultimate Launches into Early Access This August

Stuttgart, Germany (June 04, 2024) - Studio Seufz, the indie studio behind the critically acclaimed game The Longing, and publisher AMC Games announced today that their slapstick roguelite adventure LuckyTower Ultimate will be launching into Early Access on Steam in August 2024.



The new Early Access trailer describes the inner workings of the tower from the perspective of its proud master, the aptly named villain Evelius. Behind each door is a randomly generated room featuring an array of traps, fancy hats, monsters, swarms of bees, potential companions, and more. As we zoom out to view a nightmarish field of towers, and the clumsy knight’s haircut shifts with every death, viewers may begin to glean the deeper scope of Evelius’s machinations.


"Thanks to its randomly generated nature, Lucky Tower Ultimate is a game that even surprises me, its developer, with the different absurd situations it throws my way each time I play," said Anselm Pyta, co-designer and lead artist of the Lucky Tower series. “This also makes it a perfect fit for Early Access, where input from the community helps us to add in even more content so it will continue to surprise forever.” Lucky Tower Ultimate is expected to remain in Early Access for a year or less.


Lucky Tower Ultimate is the first premium game in the Lucky Tower series, and it’s a true culmination of all the goofy jokes, quirky characters, and deadly perils enjoyed tens of millions of times over in the days of Flash gaming. Continuing its trademark design of presenting three mysterious doors on each floor, the tower beckons new and returning fans to experience the joys of getting all geared up... just to slip on a banana peel and die.


We keep saying the word ‘premium’ so everyone understands that you must buy this one in order to play it,” explained Stefan Michel, producer on Lucky Tower Ultimate. “The old games were free, because they were made by children in Flash. We just want fans to stop doing Let’s Plays of the Flash games, because this one is better. Wait, are you recording?


To stay up to date on Lucky Tower Ultimate ahead of the Early Access release in August, players can play the demo on Steam or join the conversation on the Studio Seufz Discord

What’s more, Little Bat Games is excited to reveal in a new trailer that Hades 2 star Sarah Grayson, Francesca Meaux of Hades fame, newcomer Kylie Clark, and star of Critical Role and Baldur’s Gate 3’s Matthew Mercer will be joining Cyrus Nemati (Hades and Pyre) in the cast of Vampire Therapist.

Created in conjunction with licensed therapists, players will be able to take on the role of Sam in this unique "therapize 'em up" game. Even vampires need a shoulder to cry on. (Just be sure not to show them too much neck at the same time!)
