Korean developer Action Square, more known for their mobile action games such as Blade II: The Return of Evil, has hit a rough patch with their recent mobile launches. So it is no surprise as the team tries to recover with a PC action shooter, ANVIL: Vault Breakers. Scheduled to launch worldwide on Steam this September, ANVIL is being described as “a top-down sci-fi roguelike action shooter where players control characters called Vault Breakers to explore various galaxies that are filled with monsters.” Seen below are the features of ANVIL.
ANVIL (ANcient Vault Investigation Lab) is an agency that searches for “Vaults”, the remnants of alien civilizations scattered throughout the universe. Become a “Breaker” searching for “Vaults” and explore the unknown galaxy. Each galaxy consists of random planets and unique boss monsters. By defeating monsters and opening the Vaults you will be able to utilize the stunning power within.
The Beakers are the seekers of Vaults. They have maximized their combat capabilities to survive various threats that they may encounter on different planets. Breakers with unique abilities and skills are waiting to be selected.
Artifacts and Vault Weapons
Over 100 randomly generated artifacts and dozens of weapons will make every session unique and different from previous sessions. You’ll be able to explore a combination of different playstyles by testing synergy between various artifacts and obtain powerful weapons to get the “ultimate” Breaker!
Death and Rebirth
The Breakers go into combats with their mechanical body. They are rebuilt in ANVIL if they are destroyed during an exploration. Your Breakers will gain EXP during battle that will enhance their strength and give them new powers. The Breakers are not afraid of death because death only makes them stronger when they are rebuilt.
