While Xboxcontinues its path to total domination more and more games for Game Pass are rearing their head, though in this case that head is made of metal, and comes from a relatively unknown developer in RyseUp Studio, but boy does it look the goods.
Fear not PCMR for almost all Game Pass exclusives will have a PC release alongside console, and the instance here of Roboquest that's wholly true. Here's what RyseUp has to share:
WHAT IS ROBOQUEST EXACTLY? Well, the year is 2700. Climate change and wars have changed the face of the world that we currently know. Humans live scattered throughout the desert, struggling to survive.
A young scavenger girl named Max stumbles across an old Guardian robot, lying abandoned in the sand. She activates him, knowing that possession of a Guardian will give her an advantage at surviving.
Turning on the old Guardian kicks off a dangerous journey that will take the unlikely pair from dangerous canyons to vast cities searching for answers to mysteries that may save humankind.
It will be difficult. Badbots and their bosses will stop at nothing to protect the secrets that could decide the fate of humankind.
GAMEPLAY Our motto for the game is think fast, shoot faster. Jump into the steel shoes of a high-powered, hyper-mobile robot and wreak havoc on evil bots. Battle your way through procedurally generated biomes on an unrecognizable earth.
Scorched canyons and vivid cities are packed with secrets to unearth, upgrades, and enemies to eradicate. Destroy every laser-shooting Badbot and boss that stands in your way.
Choose from an arsenal of more than 50 unique handcrafted weapons. Gather powerful technology. Upgrade abilities and customisations for your character and basecamp.
Do not worry if you are the only PC player in your crew and your friends all own Xbox, we will support cross-platform play. And while you are kicking metal ass, you can bob your head to the high-octane soundtrack composed by Noisecream, and if you do not know this artist, do yourself a favour and check him out.
Well, that is it for now. We look forward to sharing more details with you about our Xbox exclusive Roboquest as we head to Xbox Game Pass.
Shades of Borderlands mixed with the frenetic pace and movement of the modern DOOM games aren't without comparative merit, but we'd prefer to judge this one in isolation, and can't wait to play. Check out the Game Pass trailer below, and stay tuned for more as we edge ever-closer to getting some early hands on it.
