PlayStation Nation, it’s time to equip your arsenal because you’re humanity’s last hope. On August 2 you will be called upon to battle an endless swarm of robots inLivelock. Livelock will be available on PlayStation Store for $19.99.
Back in January, we gave you the first glimpse of our top-down, co-op shooter developed by Tuque Games. Focused on heavy action and strategic play, we’re looking to take the old school idea of top-down shooters that we’ve grown to love over the years and add in a new-school spin where players will focus more on utilizing their arsenals in strategic ways to eliminate their enemies.
We’re also looking to bring more narrative to the top-down shooter genre. We introduced you to Hex when we first announced Livelock. Since then, we have revealed two additional capital intellects — Vanguard and Catalyst — who bring their own play styles and background stories.
All humanity has ended after a cataclysmic gamma ray burst. Upon awakening as one of the capital intellects you are welcomed by an ally known as SATCOM, who wants to see humanity restored. Your search will tell you more about what happened to the planet and its inhabitants.
Our team is thrilled to get the game in the hands of PlayStation players later this year. For those looking to get an early glimpse with the game, we will have a playable demo available at RTX in Austin. Swing by booth #201 to get your first try at our top-down shooter!
As always, we’ll continue to share more information via Twitter, Facebook, and our blog. We have detailed backgrounds on all three characters and their arsenals if you want to learn more about Livelock!
