'Collapsed' (ALL) Comes To PS4 Later This Week - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on March 8, 2021 @ 8:33 a.m. PST

Collapsed is a post-apocalyptic roguelike action/platformer where you hunt your prey through vast procedurally generated levels filled with tough enemies, useful loot and experience points.

So what happened to the world? Why was everything destroyed? At first, these questions are left unanswered — but as you complete levels and the game grows more challenging, the history of the world begins to be revealed. You can also come across snatches of the backstory in memory clusters which are randomly scattered throughout the universe. These contain notes, diaries and other interesting recordings which shed light on the events that took place in certain locations.

Innumerable hordes of bloodthirsty aliens have crossed the borders of our Solar System, intent upon enslaving all sentient life in the universe. Capturing planet after planet, the aliens make their way to Earth, where they face stiff resistance: Earthlings have learned how to fight back against the invaders and have created a powerful weapon.

In Collapsed you play as one of 4 unique Hunters who have to track down their prey. Each one has its own set of abilities, skills and combat style to annihilate the extraterrestrials who’ve landed on the planet. You’ll have to travel through hazardous procedurally-generated levels, fighting dozens of enemy types and challenging bosses. Combat in heated battles will test your skills and reaction time.

This post-apocalyptic world is filled with useful items, that you’ll combine to gain new traits, and with experience points, you’ll invest in a vast skill tree. And you won’t lose all of your precious treasure when you’ll die! You’ll die a lot, and start from the beginning each time – but all of your loot and items are carried to your next run.

Fight alone or with a friend – either way, it won’t be easy!

Key Features

  • A dangerous world to explore. Collapsed features 9 uniquely styled locations with procedurally-generated levels filled with tough enemies and deadly traps.
  • Fight your way. Choose one of 4 Hunters, each with its own ranged and close combat styles, and engage in a hardcore timing-based fights. More than 60 enemy types and 15 bosses await you!
    • Reaper: a universal fighter, nothing to see here… except the ability to take out enemies from behind in close combat, aided by a massive scythe. Your average middle-of-the-road class, a good choice for beginners.
    • Devourer: a sniper with a powerful long-range rifle and a deep bag of tricks used to keep enemies at a distance — things like traps or spears that simultaneously pierce multiple enemies, dealing extra damage at short range.
    • Warrior: the toughest class, able to hack through waves of enemies and withstand huge amounts of damage. The Warrior has one major downside: he isn’t effective at long range, as he lacks the necessary weapons.
    • Pest: an insane scientist that wins thanks to speedy close-range attacks and a rifle that inflicts various negative effects on enemies at up to medium range.
  • Evolve. The game features a massive and branchy skill tree to develop your unique war machine.
  • Tools of destruction. You can combine and craft over 100 different items that’ll help on your way.
  • Rogue-lite. Once you’ll die (and you most certainly will), you’ll have to start from the beginning – but your hard-earned items and skills carry on.
  • Fight alone or with a friend. Collapsed features a cooperative mode for one of your friends.
  • 10 difficulty modifiers. In case you’re into a real challenge.

Currently available on Nintendo Switch (eShop), PC (Steam), Collapsed is coming to PS4 on March 13, 2021 for $14,99/€14.99.
