FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - July 24th 2014, Warsaw, Poland
The time has finally come to share with the world what Intoxicate Studios has been working on for the past couple of months. Afterfall Reconquest Episode 1 – the post-apocalyptic, story-driven action shooter with RPG gameplay mechanics is finally available via Steam Early Access for all gamers, that missed the dark and dangerous Afterfall universe.
Watch the first gameplay video and learn more about the story and the main protagonist combat skills in the second part of the AAA (After All Afterfall) Producers’s Diary.
Check out Afterfall Reconquest Episode 1 Steam product page as only until July 31st the game is 10% off!
Afterfall Reconquest Episode 1, though set up in the same universe gamers know from Afterfall InSanity, offers a completely new experience focused on an immersive, multilevel storyline, diverse, vast, semi-open world and believable characters. In the same time the game offers dynamic, challenging and extremely satisfying gameplay where a good reflex and eagle eye are as important as choosing your weapon wisely and planning your actions carefully.
The part of the game available via Steam Early Access is only a glimpse of what the first episode and the whole game have to offer. Focusing mostly on demonstrating some of the main protagonist - The Reaper combat skills, it saves revealing the story and showing the game world in its all, raw beauty for later. Developers are counting on gamers initial feedback about the game to make sure it’s final version will be polished and will meet Afterfall community expectations.
Revealing the fact that Afterfall Reconquest Episode 1 will be available via Steam Early Access, just a couple of days ago, created quite some positive buzz and excitement among Afterfall community members – said Tomasz Majka, Intoxicate Studios, Executive Producer. Which was a clear sign for us that the fans out there are waiting to re-enter the post-apocalyptic universe we’ve created. We are happy to finally give them such an opportunity and eager to know their thoughts on what the new installment has to offer. – Majka added.
Afterfall Reconquest is planned to be released in 4 episodes, each couple of hours long. The first episode will be released later this year for 6.99 EUR/USD. However gamers can buy Steam Early Access now with 10% off, to be able to share their thoughts, support the development process and in a way become a part of Intoxicate Studios.
In the year 65 of the New Era (after World War III) it become clear that nuclear warheads weren't the ultimate means of destruction but rather a stage in a self-made apocalypse. A new weapon was used. Nobody heard about the Entropy charges before the Day Zero and a few remained to tell the story after.
Only two groups of people managed to survive the apocalyptic conflict. The first consisted of the lucky ones who found shelter in one of the 'sanctuary cities' hidden deep in the mountains. Their luck, however, was the first resource to run out. Soon it became obvious that these havens weren't self-sufficient. After a few years the resources started to deplete and when they finally ran dry, worn out and embittered survivors once again were forced to find a new place to call home.
Today, former inhabitants of the sanctuary cities descended into the valleys in search of fertile soil, clean water and resources to process into fuel and tools. Thus begins the RECONQUEST - slow and ardous process of taking the land back from mutants and wildlife and rebuilding the lost cities and civilization. As for the second group... their fate remains a mystery.
The whole human population was divided into 6 fractions: Hartor, Irivdiali, Red Eye, Corvin, Aerag and Transmogrified. All competing with each other, fighting each other, having different goals and ideas for the future shape of the world. Apparently the nuclear apocalypse didn’t teach us a thing.
You are the Reaper. You don’t know how you and a few of your friends managed to survive the onslaught which wiped your family from the face of what's left of the Earth. And you have one goal and one goal only - to avenge your parents. You don’t really care about factions roaming the earth and competing each other. As a Reaper you always worked alone trying not to get involved into politics.
Traversing the wastelands on your ceaseless crusade against the mutants you stay in radio contact with other members of the group, exchanging information about dangers, discovered paths and settlements or any traces of mutants' presence. However it soon turns out that your personal vendetta is just the beginning and trying to hunt down your personal enemy brings you to something you never wanted to get involved with…
