Scourge unrelenting mutant hordes to a psychedelic heavy metal backdrop
Developer Andrade Games has released the console launch trailer for fast-paced action arcade game SturmFront - The Mutant War: Übel Edition. The remake of the original aims to enhance the core features of the bullet-hell experience with doubled content, enhanced gameplay and all the exploding mutants you could want.
While gameplay is normally the focus for this genre, Andrade Games have also sunk in story elements to keep you pushing ahead in the face of overwhelming dread:
'It is the year 1984 and it is the end of the world as we know it. A great plague, wrought by human hands, devoured all known life and puked forth a new and foreign kind of creature: the mutants. The evils that escaped this Pandora’s box, still loyal to the alien genes within their flesh, could not be controlled by humans. Our extinction is upon us!
Dr. Hartmuth Griesgram, a heartbroken and eccentric scientist who is responsible for the creation of synthetic humans, activates his accursed human manufactory one last time to unleash his ultimate creation and his final hope: the prototype SturmFront battle unit. A flawless cyborg engineered for war.
SturmFront - The Mutant War: Übel Edition releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on April 2. PC versions are already out on Steam.
