EXPLORE, EQUIP, ESCAPE IN DROID SHOOTER ‘HEXODIUS’

CERGY-PONTOISE, FRANCE – 31 May 2013 – With its potent blend of twin-stick shooting, exploration and customization, HEXODIUS invites players to explore the vast complex, equip their drone with powerful items and upgrades, and ultimately escape the clutches of the deadly enemy droids in a blaze of laser fire. The arcade-style droid shooter is heading to PC this June 21 st via Steam™, and will launch on Xbox Live® in autumn 2013.

Developed by Brain Slap Studios and published by NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe, HEXODIUS throws players into the heat of the blaster battle as they conquer multiple game modes and explore six varied worlds, each with a multitude of challenging arenas. The goal is to reach the exit of the Hexodius complex unscathed, but the droids are on the hunt and there’s nowhere left to hide.

Then just when players think they know their enemy, a new droid will appear, with a total of 25 to get the better of in battle, each with its own special dangers. The player’s own drone has a few tricks of its own, however, with over 40 customization items and upgrades to use and cleverly combine for battle advantages.

Players will explore the entire Hexodius complex with its variety of tricky and surprising gameplay mechanics designed to unseat all but the swiftest and most level-headed drone warriors. Master all the difficulty settings, conquer the story mode, smash the mighty bosses, then aim for the top of the online leaderboards where the real action is. Are you ready to engage?

HEXODIUS is heading to PC this June 21 st via Steam™, and is coming to Xbox Live® in autumn 2013.
