'Anomaly: Warzone Earth' Also Coming To XBLA - Screens

Anomaly: Warzone Earth, at its core, is an arcade approach to the real-time-strategy genre. You have the heat of an RTS battle raging around you, as you find yourself in the middle it all, supporting your squad, issuing orders, changing tactics when the situation forces you to do so.

It was the year 2018 when the world looked to the heavens and watched as a giant comet bore down on our planet. As it drew nearer, we began to see it for what it really was … debris from a giant alien craft. It entered our atmosphere, fracturing into pieces and plummeting to the ground. Within minutes, the fragments had become encased in giant domes the scientists called The Anomalies. We were the first ones on the scene. 14th Platoon. I know, I was there...

Baghdad. March 23, 2018.

Commander! Get the hell over here! What units are you taking into the battle? You're sure? All right. Start your engines, boys. What formation are you taking? APCs in the front? Good idea. Continous fire at the front guard just might help us break through their defenses.

What about tactics? Take the first left down that street, then curl around behind that mosque. Then you want to attack them from the rear? Hmm... not bad. Not a bad idea at all.

All right. Stay cool, commander. You'll have to support the squad on the ground yourself. Get me some goddamned information on those machines. Any questions? No? Fine. Good luck. Dismissed.

Anomaly Warzone Earth is coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade with exclusive content – all new Tactical Trials levels that will test your puzzle-solving skills in the Anomaly world.

The ultimate Tower Offense strategy game tasks you with saving near-future Earth from an alien onslaught. The unwelcome invaders have captured the world’s major cities, building huge turrets that destroy everything in their path. It’s up to you to lead an armored squad through the streets of cities like Baghdad and Tokyo. By putting you on the attack, Anomaly Warzone Earth turns tower defense on its head and presents an extraordinary mixture of action and real-time strategy perfectly suited to the Xbox 360.

Earlier this year, Anomaly Warzone Earth was released for PC, Mac and iOS with players hailing Anomaly's slick appearance, intuitive interface and original approach to a popular strategy game genre. Now Xbox gamers will have the chance to experience what IGN called “a perfect challenge for any strategist” and what Destructoid considers “a fresh and exhilaratingly fun strategy experience that only few titles can match.”

Key Features:

  • Enjoy innovative Tower Offense gameplay – you’re the attacking side!
  • Experience a new approach to strategy games on consoles - a strategy game designed to be played with a gamepad.
  • Dive into six Xbox-exclusive Tactical Trials levels that will test your puzzle-solving skills in the Anomaly world.
  • Play for hours on end in the engaging story campaign, as well as the two exciting Squad Assault Modes.
  • Immerse yourself in the game with great visuals and atmospheric audio.
