A unique cooperative shooter with a sci-fi setting!
Argentinian based developer Bacus Studios have announced that their debut title Trident’s Wake is coming to Windows PC this year! Humanity has left Earth with its last consignment of embryos aboard the colony ship, The Trident. Adrift in deep space, The Trident has been overrun by the alien scourge and only you can stop them. Players must progress through multiple sectors aboard the ship including the open-ended Industrial Zone, Storage Bay, Hangars and the ship’s Medical Facility, among others. Each level is populated by nine distinct enemy types – ranging from close-quarter shotgun-wielding Humanoids to Kamikaze units that rush the player and explode after a short delay.
Trident’s Wake is set to feature over 20 hours of campaign content, multiple character classes, an arsenal of deadly weapons and online co-op for endless replayability. In addition, Trident’s Wake differentiates itself from other twin-stick shooters by featuring a two tier currency system in addition to traditional XP for its progression system. The first currency, Matheria, allows players to unlock and customise up to 11 unique weapons such as traditional Assault Rifles, Shotguns and so forth. The second currency, commonly known as Weapon Parts are used to upgrade weapons through multiple tiers for increased damaged, reload capacity, accuracy and magazine size.
If you are interested in checking out the game when it launches you can do so by visiting the official Trident’s Wake Steam page and adding the game to your wish list. No date is confirmed as of yet but hopefully more news will be available soon.
