Video game publisher Rising Star Games announced today that Earth’s Dawn will be launching on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system on November 1 and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft on November 2 in USA, Canada, and South America. Developed by oneoreight, and previously released in Japan under the name Earth Wars, Earth’s Dawn mixes fast-paced, side-scrolling 2D action mechanics, unique dark-edge anime visuals, and a wealth of customization to weapons and skills to deliver a deep and unique gameplay experience.
Earth’s Dawn takes place after the Earth was decimated by an invasion from an alien race known to humans as E.B.E. The E.B.E. moved across the planet, consuming anything in their path, and proved impervious to existing weapons. Ahead of the impending annihilation, a breakthrough was made – the E.B.E. was susceptible to damage by weaponry designed using its very own technology. The power to fight back was now in the hands of an elite fighting force.
Combat in Earth’s Dawn offers a huge amount of depth, with a layered system that will appeal to both light and more hardened players. Basic attacks can easily be strung together to pull off combos, while tying these to the analogue stick will instigate launchers, aerials, and sliding attacks. Timing a dash during a combo will extend its length and finisher moves will dispatch enemies with flair. Players are evaluated after battles and ranked according to expertise and skill, and may then use the points awarded to enhance and level up their hero.
Developed by oneoreight, Earth’s Dawn will be available on the PlayStation®4 system on November 1 and Xbox One on November 2 for $29.99 in USA, Canada, and South America. A physical boxed PS4™ system edition will also be available at participating retailers in USA, Canada, and South America. The PC version of Earth’s Dawn will follow soon after.
