Defenders of Ekron is a game that mixes the exploration experience of the adventure genre and the best action of a classic shoot'em up.

The game is set in Ekron, a planet that may seem peaceful, but its past is clearly scarred by war. You take the role of Eneas, a young and bold cadet at Petra Martial Institute that has trained his entire life to become an Anakim pilot, a cutting-edge mech that absorbs and transforms the energy around it into a special ability, but something goes wrong and his Anakim won’t develop it.

That’s why, when a civil war threatens to burst, Eneas will be forced to join an experimental program that will allow him to fight The Renegades, a rogue group of Anakim pilots that are ready to destroy the planet.

Fire up the Anakim mech, strap in, hang on, and blast and slash through Renegade forces! Help Eneas and friends uncover the truth beforethe world suffers a cruel and untimely demise. Defenders of Ekron promises to be a must-have title for adventure and shmup fans worldwide!

Bringing a host of fresh features to the shmup genre, including free-roaming exploration, mixed melee combat, and other genre-defying features, Defenders of Ekron presents players with a truly unique experience. A story-driven narrative and hard rock soundtrack by in-house band, Action Replay, will keep players firmly strapped in their cockpits as they battle across 10 levels filled with a wide range of enemies and massive screen-filling bosses!

Originally scheduled for May 16, 2017, delayed until July 11, Defenders of Ekron is now scheduled for August 15, 2017.

Key Features:

  • 10 levels to shoot up and explore in full 360° freedom
  • A highly-immersive story - dig deeper to uncover the truth behind the Technocratic Republic of Ekron
  • Use the Anakim mech to analyze and navigate diverse environments to reveal hidden threats, enemies, allies, and unlock key information
  • Mix combat skills to compliment any playstyle: melee-based sword fighting, pyromancy, electromagnetism, dashing, and more
  • 53 Simulation Training Drills allow players to hone their skills and earn extra Oxus that can be used on missions, or in the Hangar to upgrade their Anakim mech
  • Adrenaline-fueled soundtrack performed and recorded by in-house hard rock band, Action Replay

Defenders of Ekron will be available for PC (Steam) and on the PS4 (PlayStation Network) starting on August 15, 2017 for $14.99.
