Aftercharge, a three-on-three shooter from Canadian developer Chainsawesome Games, will be coming out this Summer for multiple platforms.
Featuring asymmetrical gameplay, Aftercharge is set on the distant planet of Dusk 11. Worse for wear, the planet's been exploited by the titular corporation for the energy at its core . Designed originally to avoid industrial espionage, the company’s workonics worker robots are defecting due to the planet's now unstable energy, which has put the company’s extractors (and all life on the planet) at risk. The Workonics set out to destroy the extractors and must face off against human Enforcers guards who are invulnerable to robot attacks.
Coming out on PC, Switch, and Xbox One, Aftercharge will support cross-play across the three platforms.
“Having Aftercharge support cross-play with the three platforms at launch has always been super important for us, so we can't wait to see the three gaming worlds collide this summer,” said Laurent Mercure, Communications Officer at Chainsawesome Games. “Aftercharge on the Switch not only makes the game playable on-the-go, but also opens the door to building a more unified gaming community without platform-based borders. And for those gamers who want to get an early look at the game, we’ll be showcasing a playable PC build at PAX East 2018, as well as holding a special Alpha playtest in April."
Scheduled to come out this Summer, Aftercharge is slated for release on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC. The game is rated "E10+" by the ESRB.
