Vanguard Games, co-founded by the originals of Guerrilla Games, announced that it will become part of EA Partners to release Gatling Gears.
From the team that created the award-winning Greed Corp, comes the new game Gatling Gears, set within the same Mistbound universe featuring signature elements like collapsing land, walker units and warring factions, but now with twin-stick shooter controls and a new hero, Max Brawley. In this eclectic steampunk setting, players fill the air with lead as they try to defeat a monopolistic corporation that is depleting the world of its natural resources.
“When Vanguard Games first showed us Gatling Gears, it was clear we were looking at a best-in-class title developed by people who are passionate about making fun, accessible games,” said Jamil Moledina, Outreach Director, Business Development at EA Partners. “Given our strategy of partnering with the top developers in the world, we are very excited to work with Vanguard as they advance the classic twin-stick shooter genre with new gameplay and beautiful visuals.”
Gatling Gears will be in XBox Live Arcade, PSN & PC in Spring 2011.
