Things are starting to heat up on the sphere! Accomplished indie publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer SmokeStab are fired up to reveal some major updates for their novel 360° shooter, Orbital Bullet. The first exciting piece of news is this – Orbital Bullet will exit its Early Access phase, debuting its full Steam launch on March 21st, 2022. Having been in Early Access for almost half a year, the action-packed neon-soaked roguelike has garnered an impressive “Very Positive” Steam rating, as well as several awards, including “Best Concept with Prototype” at GermanDevDays 2019, as well as placing second in the category “Prototype Young Talent Award” at the German Video Game Awards.
That’s not all the news we have to share, though. In preparation for its launch, Smokestab has released a new content-packed update. Titled “Upcycle”, this DLC showcases Planet Scrapyard, a fresh n’ fun desert biome. But don’t be fooled, this expansion is anything but barren. Along with a new environment to traverse through, this latest content drop includes dazzling hand-painted pixel art cutscenes for each boss, additional skill tree branches, and a new Decorating System. Included in the update are three new electrophonic soundtracks from Niilo Takalainen, known for their work on award-winning dungeon crawler Noita.
