Headup Games and Pixel Perfex announce Earth Atlantis for PS4 and Xbox One. The action-filled shooter is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a climate shift has struck the earth and marked civilization’s downfall. With most of the land now being completely flooded, life is only possible beneath the ocean.
Mankind’s main capitals are destroyed and lay at the bottom of the sea, as ruins of steel and stone. The machines have found their place in this new environment and now roam the seas as terrifying hybrids of creatures and machines.
The unique visuals of Earth Atlantis feature the style of old sketches, reminiscing a time where sea exploration commenced and the sea was believed to be inhabited by fantastic as well as dangerous creatures. Now, once again, the world has to be discovered. Board one of four individual submarines – each with different advantages and weaponry. Hunt down huge bosses in an intense retro style side-scrolling shooter. Rediscover humankind’s sunken world.

Earth Atlantis will hit PlayStation™4 and Xbox One in Q2 2018, the exact release date will be lifted soon. The game is now available for Switch.
