CounterAttack Beta

Join the CounterAttack Beta this weekend on Xbox One!

This weekend, Relative Games invites you to playtest CounterAttack, a new side scrolling space shooter (shmup) coming to Xbox One!

Earth is under attack! The Automations, humanity’s own creation, have rebelled. They will stop at nothing short of the complete destruction of their former masters. There is but one hope, the Experimental Space Fighter program.

Fight solo or team up for intense co-op action, 1 – 4 player locally or 2 – 8 players online, unlock upgrades, use powerful ultimate abilities, enhance your ship the way you want, and save the Earth from annihilation.

CounterAttack Playtest Times:

Friday, February 28 @ 10:00 AM PT – Monday, March 2 @ 10:00 PM PT

Please feel free to share screenshots and video clips, or stream your gameplay!
