'CrossCode' (ALL) Gets PC Release Date

by Rainier on Aug. 9, 2018 @ 7:20 p.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.

With more than 100.000 Copies sold through Early Access and an overwhelmingly positive rating since more than a year now, CrossCode will be leaving Early Access on 20th September.

For the release, a massive update will hit CrossCode, including the last part of the story (which actually is more than twice as much story content compared to the current version), new regions, enemies and bossfights. And of course more of everything else as well.

Here is a list of things you can expect from CrossCode 1.0:

  • The complete main story with at least twice the amount of cutscenes
  • Awesome and dramatic plot moments™
  • A complete new area + dungeon + several extensions in existing areas
  • Rhombus Square - the largest city of the game
  • New party members!
  • Over 9 new enemy types + more variations
  • Over 13 new boss fight and other major battles
  • About 12 new quests
  • Several menu improvements and QoL additions
  • A complete German translation
  • Countless other small improvements/changes

 

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.
