Rising Star Games have announced that Oneoreight’s 2D side-scrolling game Earth’s Dawn, previously known as Earth Wars in Japan, will be launching at retail for PS4 on October 28th, and digitally for PS4 on November 1st, and for Xbox One on November 2nd.
Earth’s Dawn mixes fast-paced, side-scrolling 2D action mechanics, unique dark-edge anime visuals, and a wealth of customisation 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.
