Xeodrifter To Hit PlayStation 4 and PSP Vita On September 1st
Game developer, Renegade Kid, formally announced that they will be launching the Xeodrifter on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on September 1 in North America and Europe.
Xeodrifter follows the story of an interstellar traveler on a simple mission of exploration. The traveler's mission is to investigate a small cluster of four planets in the omega sector only to be trapped in the dimension after a rogue asteroid destroys his warp core.
The protagonist, which is an astronaut, needs to visit the four omega sector planets to repair the damaged warp zone in order to get back to his world.
Xeodrifter will allow the player to access four planets, with different environments, in any order, but the exploration will depend on the power ups that the player will gather in order to access new areas.
The game will be in 2-dimensional platforms and will have a shooting and exploration gameplay as well as unlocking of legendary powerups and access to new areas.
It will also showcase a vast list of boss encounters which will test the gamer's ability to outwit and out duel a powerful being.
The action adventure game drew inspiration from Renegade Kid's Metroid series and took some game elements from Mutant Mudds.
Xeodrifter was originally released on 3DS in 2014 and later on to PC. It was also released for Nintendo's Wii U in 2015 but did not receive a good response from the public due to the PlayStation's and Xbox's huge success at that point in time.
However, the game itself got praises from game review experts due to its gameplay and mechanics. The only take away for the game was its length and repetitive bosses.
Renegade Kids is headquartered in Austin, Texas and was founded by Jools Watsham and Greg Hargrove in 1997.
On its release, the Xeodrifter will be priced at $9.99 in the US and 9.99 UK pounds in Europe. Cross buying is also allowed.
