Independent developer Novarama announced that their top-down co-op action RPG, Killsquad, will launch on Steam Early Access on the 16th of July.
Killsquad is set within a futuristic world that combines a space western style with the top down look and feel of a traditional RPG with fast-paced action. Killsquad revolves around quick session-oriented missions featuring an in-depth loot and class system with procedurally generated levels ensuring an intense, action-based single and multiplayer experience. Players can select one of 4 different heroes to play, each of which has their own distinct capabilities based on their class: Assassin, Warrior, Specialist or Support. Killsquad’s class system means players have access to plenty of skill and upgradeable gear options to completely customize their chosen character including their appearance with character skins.
With community at its core, Killsquad introduces a live contract system allowing players to join other players and tag along in an open contract for a share of loot and kudos as they take down various nefarious enemies and boss characters while navigating dynamic planets that pose as much of a threat as the enemy inhabitants do. With a variety of different weapons and contracts to unlock as well as equipment to acquire, players have a seemingly endless selection of options to utilize in a deadly universe that’s always active.
More details will be revealed in the upcoming weeks.
