Explore derelict ships, scavenge for resources, and battle foes in this rogue-lite shooter.
Blue Manchu’s rogue-lite first person shooter Void Bastards is now available for Xbox One and PC via Steam. Taking inspiration from System Shock 2, the title sees players leading a group through the Sargasso Nebula in an attempt to escape. This is done by going from one derelict ship to another, deciding which enemies to fight and what to salvage.
Each derelict offers its fair share of hazards and decisions to make. Throughout the journey you’ll scrounge up different supplies to improve your weapons, creating rough-shod weapons like the clusterflak. Just remember to use those resources wisely – you never know when you’ll need them next.
The rogue-lite element of the game replaces your character, if they die, with a new one carrying random stats and traits. Crafting progress is maintained throughout the experience, so eventually, you’ll find a way to escape the nebula. Void Bastards is also available on Xbox Game Pass, so for $5 per month, you can check out the entire experience and play a bunch of other titles on Xbox One.
