Inertia Game Studios has announced that Catastronauts – a colourful and chaotic interstellar party game – is headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC in late 2018. The debut trailer for the game has also been released (watch below), showing the game in all its frenzied glory.
Catastronauts is a fast-paced multiplayer action game in which players become a crew of intergalactic spacefarers who must work together to destroy an attacking enemy fleet, whilst frantically struggling to keep their own ship intact.
Co-ordination, co-operation and decisiveness are essential to victory, as multiple tasks need to be taken care of across the vessel. Who is going to fire the lasers, arm the torpedoes, repair a breach in the hull and extinguish that damned fire?
Watch the Catastronauts announcement trailer below:
In addition to the regular occupational hazards, each level offers unique challenges and dangers to deal with including solar flares and malfunctioning extraction doors. Meanwhile a whole host of unique mechanics will keep even the most experienced crew members on their toes.
