Robot announces ReadySet Heroes today!Dean26 Mar 20198888
The time has come to see what has been cooking at the Robot Entertainment factory for the past year. The answer has been revealed today as part of PlayStation State of Play. The answer is ReadySet Heroes! A brand new and original game from Robot Entertainment featuring fast paced multiplayer dungeon crawling. Players choose their own hero who starts with nothing more than a humble wooden sword. Players then take their hero into randomly generated dungeons to do battle and solve puzzles. The twist however is that there is another team competing with the player doing the exact same dungeon with the winner being the team that finishes it the fastest!
The game features single player or co-op play against a team competing in the same dungeon. Once a team reaches the end of the dungeon, depending on their performance they will be equipped to take on the other players in a final showdown to find out who is the worthy dungeon champion and the mightiest hero. The final showdowns take the form of a variety of different activities from an all out arena battle or maybe something a bit more bizarre like snail racing!
The main mode has everything you would expect from a dungeon crawler. Players solve puzzles, grab loot, defeat enemies – all against the clock to try and beat the other team. Items you collect like armour and spells help you in the longer term once you reach the final showdown. The game is designed for short, quick play sessions with friends. One might call it a party dungeon crawler!
Check out the brand new first look trailer below.
Robot Entertainment CEO has penned a blog post on the Playstation website talking more about the game. Be sure to check that out to read more. The game will be launching in 2019 with date TBC. It will be available on PS4 for sure and there will not be a requirement for PlayStation Plus. Other consoles and platforms are to be announced and not ruled out.
Keep a close eye out for more news and information on this exciting brand new original game, fresh out of the factory from Robot! Remember this is just one of at least two games that Robot has been working on!
