If you’re into twin-stick shooters, you might want to keep an eye out for Tower 57, a title set to invade the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC soon. Rufus Kubica, community manager at 11bit studios, announced in a blog post that Tower 57 will be available on those platforms as a Play Anywhere title.

Tower 57 is a fast-paced neo-retro shooter game where victory lies in how you fight your way through a dieselpunk megatower to uncover its secrets. Kubica explained:

Like many of you, we were raised on Amiga games; the ones that challenged your imagination and tested your gaming skills. ​Tower 57​ aims to capture those elements that made those games great, but also take them to another level. Think retro on the outside, but modern, well-crafted machinery on the inside. Not a blast from the past, but rather a modern take on a great formula.

Now, imagine being lost in a steampunk-themed tower-like fortress full of threats straight from campy sci-fi stories. Some of these enemies have tentacles, others with cutting-edge lasers, but all share the same agenda: putting an end to your existence. Now think of the same situation, but with a Tesla gun in your hand, plenty of ammo at your disposal, and a friend who’s got your back. Sounds like a much different, more explosive story doesn’t it?

Beware of treacherous interior

Kubica went on to warn players about the game’s tricky interior. While it appears harmless and even alluring, humanity’s last enclave in a dieselpunk world has mysteries for you to discover and things to blow up along the way.

Tower 57 offers a slew of upgradeable guns and special items to help carry out tasks at hand. Fight arm-in-arm with another agent, either locally or online, using specials skills designed for a more cooperative experience.

It is still not clear when Tower 57 will land on Xbox and Windows 10, so stay tuned for more updates.
