It’s nearly time to go bug-wild, as Atari has announced an August 23rd, 2022, launch date for Yars: Recharged, the latest entry in the publisher’s popular Atari Recharged series. Complementing the announcement, Atari has also dropped a brand new teaser trailer depicting the game’s entrancing bullet hell gameplay and neo-retro aesthetic.
Yars: Recharged is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, Switch, Atari VCS, Stadia, and PC via Steam and the Epic store.
Yars: Recharged thrusts players to the center of a daring attack against the enemy homeworld, guarded by mechanical hives that pulse deadly cannons and emit flurries of swirling missiles.
Find pockets of safety amongst the hail of incoming fire, and then dart forward in daring forays to chip away at the enemy’s defenses.
Gather enough energy by destroying enemy shields to power up the massively destructive Zorlon cannon, and use its pulsing, searing blasts of cosmic energy to annihilate enemies.
Yars: Recharged challenges players to remain acutely aware of visual and audio cues that hint at impending danger, and master the smooth flying controls as they navigate increasingly complex levels.
