Anvil is a top-down sci-fi roguelike action shooter where you control characters called Vault Breakers to explore various galaxies that are filled with monsters.

Take on the role of a Vault Breaker in search of alien artifacts called “Vaults” and fight against monsters and powerful bosses, you can strengthen your Breakers to explore the farthest galaxy that no one has ever reached.

Find relics inside Vaults to increase Breaker's ability to survive and fight on this godforsaken galaxy.

Anvil is an agency that searches for "Vaults”, the remnants of alien civilizations scattered throughout the universe. Become a "Breaker" searching for “Vaults” and explore the unknown galaxy. Each galaxy consists of random planets and unique boss monsters. By defeating monsters and opening the Vaults, you will be able to utilize the stunning powers within.

The Breakers are the seekers of Vaults. They have maximized their combat capabilities to survive various threats that they may encounter on different planets. Breakers with unique abilities and skills are waiting to be selected.

Action Square has released a public demo test for the game on Xbox Series X|S and Steam to coincide with the E3 Expo.

Wonho Son, the producer for Anvil said, “We’re very happy to be able to introduce ANVIL through a global exhibition like E3,” and said, “We will strive harder to develop an action shooter that everyone can enjoy.”

How to Participate:

  1. On or after June 12 at 12 AM PT, sign-in on your Xbox Series X|S console and launch the Xbox Insider app
  2. Navigate to Previews > ANVIL: Vault Breakers
  3. Select Join
  4. Wait for the registration to complete to be directed to the Store and install ANVIL: Vault Breakers

Over 100 randomly generated artifacts and dozens of weapons will make every session unique and different from previous sessions. You will be able to explore a combination of different playstyles by testing synergy between various artifacts and obtain powerful weapons to get the “ultimate” Breaker!

The Breakers enter combat with their mechanical body. They are rebuilt in ANVIL if they are destroyed during an exploration. Your Breakers will gain EXP during battle that will enhance their strength and give them new powers. The Breakers are not afraid of death because death only makes them stronger when they are rebuilt.

There are many dangers lurking on the planets when you go exploring. When you feel that you need a hand, try finding a teammate to explore the planets together. You can invite your friends, or you can choose random match to play with users from all over the world.

Anvil is in development for PC (Steam) and console.
