This is Si at indie games developer Eiconic Games in the UK. We’re very proud to announce that Final Horizon is launching on PS Vita and PS4 tomorrow, December 2nd.
Building on the success of our arcade action game Total Recoil we wanted to make a Tower Defence game our own way, with our own blend of action and strategy. We’ve really levelled things up for this game. The killstreaks are crazier, the enemies are smarter, the weapons are cooler and we’re really happy with the result.
We have spent a lot of time developing, testing and refining the enemy AI so it feels like alien behaviour. The Swarm will rush forward in spider-legged tanks and launch rockets from distance in their Skorpion heavy assault vehicles. They’ll swoop in with airbourne Hornets and Mecha-Wasps that will flock together for maximum impact. Then you meet the Scarab. The Scarab tunnels underground and breaks the surface behind your defences. You will really need to learn and adapt to complete the game.
We would like to announce to the readers of the PlayStaion Blog that Final Horizon is a Platinum Trophy game. With 100 objectives to complete you’ll be playing and replaying the 50 levels to unlock the Platinum Trophy.
We are also very excited to announce the launch of the Dark Galaxy add-on pack. More than just extra levels it’s a standalone galaxy with more advanced weapons and enemies. Here you will have to think faster and move quicker than ever before to power up and detonate the EMP towers. And you will get hands on with the most powerful tower in the game – the Plasma Cannon. You are going to need these new weapons while you are overrun with SpiderBombs, Dark Hornets and other bigger and badder machines from the Swarm.
Final Horizon: 3 Galaxies, 50 Levels, 100 objectives, Platinum Trophy
Dark Galaxy add-on pack: 1 Galaxy, 20 levels, 7 extra trophies
So, Final Horizon, out exclusively for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita tomorrow. The Vita version is part of the December Instant Game Collection for PS Plus members. Let us know what you think!
