Alex Monney Communications Manager at Perfect World Entertainment (PWE) has taken to the official PlayStation Blog this week to announced that Livelock will be launching on the PlayStation 4 console later this year.
The Lovelock game takes place in the 22nd century following a catastrophic gamma ray burst that wipes out the human population, leaving the world open to be taken over by Rogue Clusters, that take the form of mechanised armies.
Check out the official announcement trailer below to learn more about what you can expect from the Livelock game when it launches later in 2016.
Our team here at PWE and friends over at Tuque Games are thrilled to unveil Livelock, launching on PS4 this year. Livelock is a fast-paced, cooperative, top-down shooter based in a post-human world where machines are waging an infinite war against each other.
When thinking about Livelock, our teams looked to create something that brought us back to the fun and camaraderie of the arcade days. A game that presents a challenge for even those experienced video game players. While you’ll have a variety of tools to succeed at your disposal, refining your abilities, thinking tactically, and working cooperatively are the only ways to overcome some of our most challenging content. Think less of a bullet hell top-down shooter and more about overcoming overwhelming odds.
With our announcement today, we are also revealing our first of three playable characters — Hex. Prior to a catastrophic gamma ray burst in the 22nd century, Hex was a renowned e-sports professional who became feared by many as he honed his craft. He was also one of the first to participate in a risky experiment to upload his consciousness to a database, which was later uploaded to a machine by SATCOM following the catastrophe.
