We got news today of a new game coming to PS4 from GRIP Digital and Elefantopia. The game is called McDroid and it’s a bit like a tower defense game, but you’re able to move around freely. Build a base and defend it from hordes of deadly aliens while harvesting materials needed for upgrades and resources needed to repair your spaceship and return home.
There isn’t a solid release date set yet, but look for McDroid some time in 2016.
Prague, December 3rd 2015 Tower Defense has long been one of the most enduring game genres of all, and now here comes planet-saving hero McDroid to add gripping action to the formula, reinvigorating tower-toppling gameplay like never before. Developers Elefantopia have joined together with hit gamemakers GRIP Digital, of Tower of Guns fame, to bring the star-skipping antics of McDroid to PS4 and Xbox One in early 2016.
You star as the brave robot McDroid himself after crashlanding on a blooming distant planet overrun by villainous alien forces. It’s your job to get back home by repairing your spaceship, and fighting the bug-eyed baddies who are determined to stop you! You’ll build your own bases and defend them against the world-killing alien hordes, harvesting mind-expanding space weapons and sci-fi resources to help you in your quest.
OU’RE LOVIN’ IT
With a gripping story mode packed with challenges, plus bonus survival levels to test your McDroid mettle, Elefantopia’s game has already been a hit on Steam, but in 2016 the action will spread cross-console to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, giving armies of new gamers the chance to get sucked into the explosive star-skipping challenge for the first time.
Jakub Mikyska, CEO of GRIP Digital, says “McDroid has been gaining huge positive feedback since it launched on Steam, and it’s a great pleasure for GRIP to be spreading the intergalactic challenge across to Xbox One and Playstation 4 consoles.”
