Developer The Behemoth has announced that its upcoming Alien Hominid Invasion will launch on Steam for PC, Nintendo Switch, and “Xbox” alongside the release of a gameplay video.
Announced last month, studio Castle Crashers and Pit People’s latest game The Behemoth is a cooperative run ‘n’ gun game that’s a “re-imagining of the studio’s first game, Alien Hominid HD”.
Instead of the set level structure of the original, Alien Hominid Invasion will feature “a non-linear level experience” filled with “enemy agents in sectors constructed from hundreds of handcrafted city blocks”.
The studio detailed other gameplay changes in a blog post:
Unlock and equip an arsenal of weapons and upgrades, level up, then teleport to invade Earth with up to three other friends. Steal information from your enemies to sabotage their plans, observe the oddities of human life, blast bosses, and mutate into a variety of powerful alien forms to take down not-so-secret agents bent on ruining your day. .
Co-op players can also choose the difficulty individually, such as friendly, normal, and crazy modes.
No release date has yet been revealed, but the game is currently playable at PAX East, Boston’s annual convention that kicked off today through Sunday, March 1.
