Action Platformer 30XX Confirmed to Launch Next Month in Early Access
Offering an indie roguelite platformer experience reminiscent of Mega Man X, 20XX reviewed well when it launched in 2017. We've known for some time that the sequel, 30XX, was on its way and developers Batterystaple Games have confirmed today that PC players can dive into the fray on February 17 via Steam Early Access.
30XX launches with six procedurally generated levels via Arcade Mode and just like its predecessor, permadeath is ever-present. Fans looking for a more casual experience can do so via Mega Mode, letting them focus on the game's story. Both modes are available in single-player, alongside online and local co-op multiplayer.
Most excitingly, though, is the introduction of a level editor known as Maker Mode, which allows players to share their creations with the wider community. Better yet, this will be available straight away for early adopters.
Though it's also confirmed for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PS4, console owners will need to wait a little longer. As it currently stands, there's no confirmed release date for these editions beyond a vague 2021 window.
In the meantime, if you want to learn more about 30XX, we previously sat down with Batterystaple Games' Creative Director Chris King for an interview back in September. Be sure to take a look and we'll keep you updated at GameSkinny with any new developments as they come.
