Players will have to wait until summer to try and save the Earth from alien invaders as Earthfall gets delayed until July.
Originally scheduled to release in spring of 2018, the game will now be launching July 13 digitally on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC (via Steam). A physical boxed retail version will also be coming out on that same day courtesy of Gearbox Publishing.
“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,” said Russell Williams, CEO of Holospark. “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.”
The game challenges four players to team up online and fight against an invading otherworldly threat. Equipped with a mix of modern and futuristic weaponry, portable barricades, mobile turrets, turning the aliens’ technology against them, it's up to the four-person team to save humanity from destruction. Earthfall features a complete story-mode and each of its campaigns tells a story across several missions, allowing players to dive in and experience diverse settings and mission types across the Pacific Northwest. The game will consist of 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 exactly what horrible secrets the invaders are hiding.
Earthfall is rated "T for Teen" by the ESRB.
