'Futuridium EP Deluxe' (ALL) Coming In July - Screens & Trailer

An old school shoot'em up with a modern twist. Futuridium EP Deluxe offers fast paced, non stop, hard as hell action, with an original soundtrack and colorful graphics.

In Futuridium you are a lone starship pilot who gets lost in a dimensional loop just before a big space battle. With a limited and constantly depleting energy bar, your only hope is to fly as fast as possible over enormous space dreadnoughts and destroy power cubes to replenish your energy tank and reveal the dreadnought’s power core, which must be destroyed to move on to the next ship.

You have no power-ups and limited control over your speed, so you can only count on your reflexes, your dual lasers, the nimbleness of your starship, and the ability to turn 180° on the spot — an essential technique when navigating the dreadnoughts’ intricate passages.

Futuridium’s gameplay is heavily score based; you can gain big multipliers by destroying cubes and chaining cubes together. You can play it safe, but only taking big risks and learning the right path on the dreadnoughts will lead you to the top of the online leaderboards.

Futuridium EP Deluxe will launch on PS4 and PS Vita in July, with the precise launch day still to be determined.

At the heart of the Deluxe edition is the brand new Deluxe mode — a massive campaign featuring 50 different levels divided in five zones, with five bosses and five bonus areas.

There are no extra power-ups in Futuridium; you can only count on your skills. But to better equip you against the all-new odds you’ll encounter in deep space, we added a turbo mode to your starship (How generous!). The turbo is just a button press away — you can sprint even faster between obstacles, adding a new layer of complexity to the game and a new meaning to the words “risk” and “reward.”

The new campaign, aside from the high-score chasing thrill in the leaderboards, provides new challenges in the form of 150 medals to get, three for each Deluxe level. Don’t die to get the first, chain a minimum number of cubes to get the second, and finish the level under a certain amount of time to get the third. Sound easy? Trust us, it’s not — only the very best pilots will be able to get all the medals in the game. It’s brutally difficult!

But fear not, you can still enjoy everything in Futuridium EP Deluxe by simply playing and destroying blue cubes to unlock new stuff. Credits to continue, new skins, and new gameplay modes like the original Classic campaign which features no turbo and a set of 13 levels to master.

And about the PS4 version, here’s what you can expect:

  • 1080p in glorious 60 frames per second
  • Even more dazzling visual effects thanks to the PS4's added power
  • Leaderboards shared with the PS Vita version
  • Cool DualShock 4 features
  • Full sharing support so you can stream your best run
  • Simultaneous PS Vita / PS4 launch
  • Cross buy
