Space, the last great frontier, where the rules are more like guidelines. People of all walks of life have a chance to strike out on their own, though some go for more lucrative methods that aren’t the most legal of means. Embark on a journey across the stars as Captain Piper Faraday, a smuggler and casual pirate, as she recruits a ragtag team of steam-driven robots in SteamWorld Heist.
With her crew assembled, players will board, loot and shoot their way through enemy spaceships. Combat is turn-based, with a focus on skill rather than chance. Players can freely aim their guns to perform trick shots, shooting off walls to use bullet ricochets to their advantage against an enemy hiding behind cover. Speaking of guns, there are over 100 weapons in the game. Each level is randomly generated, giving players a unique experience for every level. Players can test their mettle against fearsome bosses. The game clocks in at around 20-25 hours of playtime with a New Game+ feature for those wishing to dive back in.
SteamWorld Heist is being released starting this December on Nintendo 3DS first, followed by releases on Steam (PC/Mac/Linux), PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Wii U and mobile.
