The retro sci-fi collaborative shooter, The Anacrusis, will be released on Early Access and Xbox Game Pass in January this year.

In addition to arriving at Steam, the Epic Games Store, and more, players enrolled in the Xbox Game Pass will also have access to futuristic shooters. Sign up for the service and you will be able to play the game at no additional cost.

Anacrusis was first unveiled at Geoff Keighley’s Summer Games Fest earlier this year. In the game’s announcement trailer, fans pointed out that the video of the game seems to be similar to what you can expect from a sci-fi-themed Left 4 Dead. Anacrusis wasn’t developed by Valve, but the studio behind The Anacrusis (Stray Bombay) is headed by former Valve writer Chet Faliszek, who worked on the Left 4 Dead series.

As part of the press release, Faliszek talked about the excitement surrounding the next release of the game and what players can expect in January. “We have built a core game that is really exciting to share with the community,” he said.

“Director 2.0 can push players of all skill levels to the limit, and universal cross-play allows you to play with your friends on all platforms. With GamePass, much more than any other way. I’m really proud of the first three episodes of the game to be released in January, but want to integrate community feedback at the end of the first season and beyond. ”

As Anacrusis enters Early Access, the development team plans to use this period as the “season zero” of the game. This allows the first act of the story, the first batch of alien enemies, and various guns, gears, and perks that players need to take advantage of to survive.During ~ Recent devlogThe team pointed out that they wanted to receive honest feedback from the gaming community and talked more about what they wanted to get from the Early Access period.

“This is a really weird early access,” says Faliszek. “There are things like weekly challenges, so there are things like meta-progressions, because I want to be able to test them and provide feedback, so if you’re like a guy, I’ll do it. It’s really a shame to have to do these three things to get this. “And let us know. “
