'Bombslinger' (ALL) Gets Release Date - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on March 6, 2018 @ 3:27 p.m. PST

Inspired by Bomberman, Bombslinger is a Wild West action-maze game filled with explosive single player action and hectic 4 player deathmatch battles!

Mode4 will keep the classic penny-arcadey four-player free-for-all game mode the bomb throwing genre is known for, but are reimagining the solo adventure with procedurally generated levels, character progression with skill upgrades, and a variety of offensive and defensive items, all while telling a tale of revenge that is right at home in the Wild West.

The story follows the Bombslinger, a ruthless bandit turned peaceful rancher on a quest to avenge the murder of his missus and destruction of his ranch at the hands of his brother, the Gunslinger.

Currently in something called “Steam Early Access”, which I can only imagine is some sort of locomotive ride, the full launch of Bombslinger will debut our hero’s final showdown with the Gunslinger and enough new items, environments and enemies to fill a general goods store.

“We’ve enjoyed working with players to make sure Bombslinger has enough content to create a highly replayable experience players can enjoy alone or with friends,” says Ferry Keesom, Co-Founder, Programmer and Designer, Mode4. “We look forward to sharing the fruits of our love of classic westerns and bomb-slinging games with new audiences.”

Key Features:

  • Explosive Bomberman-inspired single and multi-player gameplay
  • Procedurally generated levels and tons of items make each play unique
  • 4-player battle mode and AI bots for classic local multiplayer action

Bombslinger will come to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC on April 11, 2018 in French, Italian, Spanish, German, Dutch and Simplified Chinese.
