Independent video game publisher Versus Evil, in partnership with independent developer Mild Beast Games, today revealed that the BAFTA winning, top down shoot ’em up, At Sundown, is launching on PC and Mac, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One in Spring 2018. At Sundown is a stealth-based arena shooter where 4 players compete in online and local deathmatch games. Action takes place under the cover of darkness where players can only be spotted when they shoot, dash or walk into a light source.
Players eager to take on their friends in total darkness can try out the demo for free by downloading it from the official At Sundown Steam page. The demo gives players access to 4 out of the total of 11 launch weapons on a selection of map levels set in the Garden and Mansion. The demo can be played with keyboard or controller, also providing players with the opportunity to play online in local matches or against bots.
“Mild Beast Games have a created an award-winning multiplayer formula that totally hooks players from the outset. At Sundown has been a real crowd pleaser at events like PAX, where it won players over with its superb 4 player party set up. We’re really excited to announce the games’ cross-platform launch, which underlines our commitment to bringing out the best in our indie partners,” commented Versus Evil General Manager Steve Escalante.
Winner of the coveted ‘One to Watch’ Award at the 2016 BAFTA’s, At Sundown also won Microsoft’s 2016 Imagine Games award with its innovative game design, using darkness and sporadic light source effects to create a tense yet highly competitive multiplayer game for up to four players.
At Sundown will feature a wide variety of weapons for players to choose from including pistols, sniper rifles, shotguns and bladed weapons as well as multiple maps, each with different light mechanics. As well as frenzied 4 player deathmatches, players can also team up cooperatively to take down AI opponents or face off in head to head showdowns.
