Recently, developer Holospark surprised gamers by announcing Earthfall — an upcoming Left 4 Dead-like multiplayer co-op shooter — for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. In a surprising twist, Gearbox Publishing is distributing the game at physical boxed retail. Earthfall 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.
The game launched across all platforms today. You can either buy the $39.99 Earthfall: Deluxe Edition on Amazon, or purchase the digital-only standard edition for $29.99 on the Microsoft Store. However, you won't get access to the Deluxe Edition cosmetic items if you opt to spend $10 less.
In Earthfall, you have to work together with your teammates to succeed because there are countless alien creatures that must be eliminated. It seems like trying to "Rambo" it will only end in disaster. We haven't seen a proper co-op game like this for years now, so hopefully Earthfall is a polished experience on consoles.
According to the developer, 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.
