'X-Morph: Defense' (ALL) Integrates Steam Workshop/Level Editor Support

by Rainier on March 1, 2018 @ 8:20 a.m. PST

X-Morph: Defense is a twin-stick shooter, tower defense hybrid with fully dynamic environments.

You are the X-Morph - an alien species that invades Earth to harvest its resources and terraform the surface.

Strategize in the build mode by carefully selecting various types of alien towers or throw yourself right into heat of the battle. Build mazes for incoming enemies in an environment that provides exceptional planning freedom. Tear down buildings and collapse bridges to support your defense or to simply indulge in a spectacle of unprecedented destruction. Possess a range of unique alien weapons and use defense strategies like you've never seen before in this genre.

X-Morph: Defense has improved its attack on Steam Workshop with an update to the Schmetterling Level Editor, which is the same tool Exor Studios used to build the game. Players can now easily and intuitively explore their level design skills, then publish their creations direct to the Steam Workshop for other players to download straight into their game.

There is currently a large number of community made levels available for others to use that will enhance the unique tower defense twin- stick shooter gameplay, expanding upon the endless breath of tower-defending rush that can be had in-game.

Alongside the addition of Steam Workshop the recently announced Survival Mode receives an update in Open Beta a few days later. Survival Mode consists of 10 free additional adrenaline-pumping levels that challenges players with rapid fire decision making and the need to quickly adapt to the destructible environment in a bid to defend against a never-ending onslaught of incoming enemies.

The first premium DLC, European Assault, will strike first on PC on Monday, March 26th, 2018 for $4.99/£3.99, with PS4 and Xbox One releases soon after.

Key Features:

    • Build your towers anywhere on the map.
    • Destroy obstacles, collapse buildings and bridges to change enemy paths.

    • Fight huge, building size, mechanical war machines. Each boss fight is unique and heavily influences the gameplay environment. Entire cities will be destroyed.
    • Fend off the human threat with a friend at your side.
    • X-Morph:Defense is powered by EXOR Studios' proprietary Schmetterling game engine.
    • Dynamic building destruction system. Every building in the game can be destroyed piece by piece. Realistic physics simulation makes every destruction scenario unique.
    • PhysX by NVIDIA.
