'CrossCode' Early Access Update Expands Story - Trailer

by Rainier on July 3, 2017 @ 1:45 a.m. PDT

CrossCode is a love letter to 16-bit RPGs with modern action and puzzle mechanics.

CrossCode is a true homage to the 16 bit era. Think of Secret of Mana having an affair with the classic top-down Zelda games. Like, you know, a really wild one. It’s the Action RPG you’ve always dreamed about, a perfect synthesis of time-tested gameplay and modern controls.

Experience a story full of mysteries and balls. Experience a modern take on the past.

You will follow the adventures of Lea, a player who is stuck in a fictional online game of the distant future. She also lost her memory and, on top of that, can’t speak. Now the only option to regain her memory is to play the game - hoping that fellow players won’t mistake her for a bot.

During Lea’s adventures you will experience a strange take on the future of gaming: a fictional online game about throwing balls. Not only are balls your trusty tools to master several dungeons full of puzzles, they are your weapons as well. Together with close-range attacks and special skills, they help you to fend off hordes of enemies.

Combining ball-throwing with a fast-paced combat system, puzzle solving, world exploration and character building, CrossCode provides a mix of the RPG and Action Adventure genre, delivered with detailed pixel art and a soundtrack inspired by old SNES and Playstation classics.

CrossCode has been in Early Access for two years now. And the last major Story update has been released about one year ago. Since that day new gameplay areas were added. New quests were brought into the CrossWorlds. New skills were introduced. But the overall story did not continue. As of today this has changed. Version 0.9.5. (and its hotfixes) finally continued the story of our protagonist Lea.

With the new story parts out we'd like to announce that CrossCode is currently set for an early 2018 release. Shortly before the release, a near-to-final Story Update will be introduced. And after that, the launch will happen. To celebrate todays news, we've also released a new Gameplay Trailer for the game.
