Yesterday treated us to a new sizzle trailer for [email protected]'s upcoming Xbox Game Pass titles, and buried within the video was this little gem. Roboquest immediately grabbed our attention with its colourful art style, further enhanced by its confirmation of coming to Xbox Game Pass day one for consoles and PC.
This roguelite can be played solo or in two player co-op, and has you engaging in some pretty ferocious FPS combat. With an art style reminiscent of Borderlands and gameplay that looks stripped from DOOM, it looks to be a recipe for success. You’ll run through procedurally generated environments, collect upgrades, and more importantly - fight off hordes of revolts in explosive combat.
Roboquest is a fast-paced FPS Roguelite, playable in solo or 2-player co-op. Jump into the steel shoes of a high-powered, hyper-mobile robot and fight like you’ve never fought before.
Run through randomly generated environments on an unrecognizable Earth. Scorched canyons and vivid cities packed with secrets, upgrades, and enemies.
Destroy every laser-shooting evil bot and boss that stands in your way, choosing from an arsenal of handcrafted weapons to do so.
Gather powerful technology to help you push forward. Upgrades, abilities and customization for your character and basecamp. They’ll stick with you after each defeat, to make the next run a little easier.
There’s no word on Roboquest’s release date as of yet, but at least knowing it’s hitting Xbox Game Pass on day one is a bonus. It’s actually been on PC for a while now, and the Steam reviews are listed as very positive. This could be a surprise hit when it launches on the service - hopefully later this year.
Do you like the look of Roboquest? Let us know in the comments below.
A lot of FPS shooters yet none of them Crossfire X. That's not to say I'll play the jesus out of this, Doom, Halo, etc. But it is to say I'm yearning for some Crossfire X right now
Local coop is always nice, could try this out with my kid brother.
Day one on my SX. This looks awesome!!!
Roguelite elements actually work pretty well for FPS games. STRAFE, Heavy Bullet, SuperMotherGunship, Tower of Guns, Immortal Redneck, Void Bast*rd, etc. There's something about it, when it's done well, that results in a really good arcadey type experience. Especially in cases like SuperMotherGunship or Immortal Redneck, where they have procedural level generation that just attaches new rooms to the room you're currently in - it almost becomes like a first person Robotron or Smash TV.
I mean, if you're looking for a lengthy campaign, story, setpieces, RPG elements, etc. roguelite First Person Shooters certainly aren't gonna scratch that itch. But if you're looking for an FPS you can just fire up from time-to-time, get in the zone, focus on the combat and just blast some baddies, they're actually really, really good. If you haven't tried one before, you should perhaps pick one up during a sale or on Game Pass (I think Void B*stard might still be up there?) and give one a shot sometime.
