'Gravity Heroes' (ALL) Gets Release Date

by Rainier on Dec. 22, 2020 @ 9:13 a.m. PST

Gravity Heroes is a 2D arena shooter lets players manipulate gravity, loot randomly dropped weapons and power-ups as they fight off hordes of robotic enemies.

Fuelling 80’s and 90’s nostalgia with an electrifying soundtrack and stylistically popping art style, Gravity Heroes promises diverse arcade action! Gravity Shifter, the game's main mechanic, allows you to evade and shoot enemies while walking on the ceiling, the walls or just floating around.

The story behind Gravity Heroes is about the conflict between humans and Synthetics, intelligent and independent systems (or robots) capable of reproducing and living together. Many years after a peace pact prevented a devastating war between the two factions, strange cases of revolting Synthetics threaten to reignite the discord.

To investigate and prevent this, a special task force has been formed: the Gravity Heroes.

With incredible pixel art aesthetic, classic arcade style platform based shooting combined with the innovative Gravity Shifter mechanic, Gravity Heroes is a unique combination of retro titles we loved and modern indies that push the boundaries.

Gravity Heroes is coming to PC (Steam), Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and on next generation platforms via backwards compatibility on 22nd January 2021.

A playable Gravity Heroes demo is available on all platforms!

Key Features:

  • Control your gravitational pull: Use the 'Gravity Shifter' as you change the direction of your gravitational pull to walk and slide on ceilings or walls!
  • Discover the meaning behind a robotic uprising: Take your place as a member of the 'Gravity Heroes' as you investigate the mysterious reason behind a broken peace treaty between humans and robotic-beings called synthetics in Story mode. Play solo or team up with up to three friends as you take on synthetic hordes and colossal bosses.
  • An expansive arsenal: Experiment with everything from heat-seeking missiles to bouncing projectiles. A diverse method of attack is needed for an equally diverse robotic threat!
  • Go head-to-head with friends in versus mode: Grab your friends, pick your characters, customise the rules of your match and go head-to-head in this chaotic couch multiplayer game mode.
  • Team up with friends in Survivor mode: Choose up to three of your friends and see how long you can withstand the hordes of corrupted synthetics in Survivor mode!
  • An electrifying soundtrack: Gravity Heroes is set to an amazing 90's inspired soundtrack, with music composed by Barry Leitch, the creator Top Gear's main theme song."

Gravity Heroes will be available for Nintendo Switch, PC (Steam), PS4 and Xbox One on January 22, 2021.
