Today, developer Holospark announced that Earthfall, an upcoming multiplayer co-op shooter, should launch on July 13, 2018 on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. In a surprising twist, Gearbox Publishing will distributing the game at physical boxed retail. Earthfall follows players who fend off an alien invasion of the United States using squad tactics, portable heavy weaponry, instant walls, and more tools as they try to avoid swarms of horrific intergalactic invaders.
Earthfall will be available for $29.99 for the standard edition, and $39.99 for the deluxe version. The deluxe edition includes exclusive character biohazard suits and weapon skins.
Russell Williams, the head of Holospark, issued the following statement alongside the release date reveal.
We are excited to bring Earthfall to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on July 13. By partnering with Gearbox Publishing on a physical release, even more fans will be able to get their hands on Earthfall on launch day. We've been hard at work on Earthfall since it first launched in Early Access last year, and we're really proud of what the game has become. Our thanks to everyone that played Earthfall and shared their feedback, whether that was on Steam or in-person. You've helped make the game what is it today.
Earthfall will feature ten missions across two campaigns, with diverse environments and deadly aliens to battle. As players fight waves of drones and towering monsters, they'll discover the story behind the cataclysmic alien invasion and what horrible secrets the invaders are hiding.
Updated May 22, 2018: We've added the trailer with the announcement which was a rumor before today's confirmation.
