Left 4 Dead-like 'Earthfall' gets long-awaited horde mode

Earthfall is a Left 4 Dead-like multiplayer co-op shooter which launched on July 13, 2018 for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The game follows players who fend off an alien invasion of the American Pacific Northwest using squad tactics, portable heavy weaponry, instant walls, and more tools as they try to avoid swarms of horrific intergalactic invaders.

Today, the developer released the "Invasion Update" which adds a horde mode to the game. This has been a long-requested feature ever since the title launched all those months ago. The studio claims that this horde mode offers a "twist" to gameplay, but it's unclear what that is.

Since the launch of Earthfall this summer we have been listening to our fans and with the Invasion Update we have added three of our most requested features including Invasion Mode our twist on horde mode gameplay, Player Progression and more missions. We wanted to deliver a huge update and have also included player skills, new player skins, new player outfits, weapon charms, and totally redone weapon audio.

Earthfall features ten missions across two campaigns, with diverse environments and deadly monsters to battle. It seems as though the campaigns tell the story from different perspectives. 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.
