Hello! I’d like to tell you a bit about Tower 57, a new Xbox One and Windows 10 co-op twin-stick shooter that supports Xbox Play Anywhere. 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?
Players must also be aware of Tower 57‘s treacherous interior. It may look alluring, even beautiful, offering some seemingly harmless distractions — it’s one of the last enclaves of humanity in our dystopian, dieselpunk world — but don’t forget that you were summoned here for a reason. Your main objective is to discover the mystery of this Megatower while making things go boom in the process.
To help your journey you’ll have plenty of upgradeable guns and special items to aid in the task at hand. Also, remember that mayhem tastes better if it’s shared. Fight arm-in-arm with a fellow agent, either locally or online, utilizing specials skills carefully crafted to complement fast, cooperative experience. All you have to do is grab a controller and start shooting. That stuff ain’t gonna destroy itself!
We’ll have more to share about Tower 57 on Xbox One and Windows 10 in the coming months. In the meantime, please follow us on Twitter and stay tuned to Xbox Wire.
