Developer IllFonic and publisher Nighthawk Interactive announced that Arcadegeddon will be leaving Early Access and will launch fully for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Epic Games Store on July 5. The full release will include lots of new content as well as full cross-play support. Arcadegeddon launched in Early Access on July 8, 2021, for PlayStation 5 and PC. While the Early Access version costs $19.99, the full release will cost $29.99. The publisher also announced that the game will have a physical edition on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Xbox Series / One.
IllFonic CEO Charles Brungard commented on the announcement, saying:
“Because we had far fewer physical events to get feedback from players, Early Access was core to helping bring Arcadegeddon to fruition. Thanks to everyone who helped us bring this action-packed experience to fruition with their input. There is still time to reap the Early Access rewards before launch!”
Additional details on the game via IllFonic can be found below:
Save the local arcade from the evil megacorporation Fun Fun Co, which sabotaged arcade owner Gilly’s super game meant to keep the doors open. Work together with up to three friends or brave the digital combat zone solo, exploring multiple vibrant biomes, competing for powerful loot in mid-game PvP challenges, and conquering multiple fearsome bosses with a mighty new final boss loop and beautiful biome premiering at launch this July.
Recruit 11 local gangs to Gilly’s Arcade and complete their challenges to earn tech points that will allow you to unlock Surge Gauntlet Abilities, such as fireballs and health drones to help in the fight. Create a loadout from 35 powerful weapons to annihilate 8 base enemy types plus variants of each to equal 31 total, with four dastardly bosses leading them. Climb the rankings through 6 distinct biomes to unlock additional challenges after earning enough street cred.
All arcade saviors will start fresh at launch, and as a thanks for aiding the game, Early Access supporters will receive the Adopters Bundle. This pack includes an appreciation outfit and decoration in Gilly’s Arcade, a five-day minimum XP boost, and a currency boost bundle.
