The first RESOGUN expansion, Heroes, is finally available on both the North American and European Playstation Store. Quoting our friend Ian Pickles from SonyXDev, this is what you’ll find in the package:
Survival mode is RESOGUN turned up to 11. In this all new mode you’ll descend onto Avernus with the sole purpose of taking the fight to Sentients. Attacking the stormy city on an all new day and night cycle where you’ll battle to destroy everything that moves.
Things are tough in Survival though – you only have a single life to last as long as you can however a few things have changed to improve the odds in your favour.
The Humans you saved are back and ready to help you power up. Parachuting into the level frequently they can be immediately collected to power up your weapons and give you the edge with several power ups including an improved shield, Clock (turbo speed), overcharged weapons and much more. Add those to your boost, overdrive and guns and you’re a true force to be reckoned with.
At its heart survival is a true high score chase and we’ve improved the leaderboards and post-game feedback you can expect to see when you die (and die you will). In addition to this we have a couple of cool additions to keep you pushing forward against the waves.
- Fallen Heroes: These are holograms of your ship placed on a timeline representing your best performance to date. Do better and the fallen hero will activate and, if collected will improve your shield and weapons to aid your survival.
- Monuments: Nothing pushes you like beating your friends! In survival we place Monuments representing your friends (or global) scores around you. Beat the score to destroy the monument as you move up the leaderboards to glory.
Survival is pure RESOGUN through and through and we can’t wait to see your scores.
Say hello to the “Wrecking Ball” and your new favorite game mode.
In Demolition you take the fight to Avernus at night armed only with a proximity bomb weapon which recharges after each use. No other weapons, boost or overdrive here. What you do have to hand is the Wrecking Ball which, when caught in the explosion of your proximity bomb, will fly off around Avernus destroying everything it hits… including you!
This all new game mode is RESOGUN meets Arkanoid with a touch of Pinball and it has to be seen to be believed.
The Wrecking Ball powers up after destroying 1,000 enemies and what’s more power ups will provide you with multiple wrecking balls and instant recharges of your bomb. It’s a risk and reward strategy where more Wrecking Balls equals more carnage but pose far more danger to your small vulnerable ship.
We can’t wait to see the reactions to Demolition as it fast became everyone’s favorite game mode here. This style of experimentation gameplay while keeping the same addictive and frenzied core is exactly what we’ll look to provide more of in future updates.
We’re going to honour your fight in Avernus with the addition of yet more sweet trophies to the game. This pack will push you to the limits with specific challenges across Survival and Destruction mode. We’ll be back with a trophy guide very soon.
