11 Bit Studios has announced that its science fiction tower offense game Anomaly 2 will be heading to the PlayStation 4 this spring.
“In AWE’s sequel, you’re again playing as Commander, controlling him on the battlefield and supporting the units in your convoy with four special abilities which you deploy during missions,” 11 Bit Studios’ Pawel Miechowski explains. The four abilities are “Repair,” “Decoy,” “EMP,” and “AIM.”
On top of this Commander—your character—can morph each of the game’s five unit classes–which can all be upgraded–twice. Once morphed the classes take on different attributes. For example, Rocket Hammer can be morphed into Sledge Hammer, increasing its range, but preventing it from attacking enemies to the side of it.
“We’ve also added a multiplayer mode where opponents choose sides, either aliens or humans, and square off to see who’s the best on the block,” Miechowski added. “Multiplayer is a mix of regular tower defense play in which one of the players controls towers, upgrades them, and uses their abilities, while the other plays much in the way you do during single-player missions.
“Multiplayer mode offers a tech-tree to develop unique strategies. And keep in mind that multiplayer mode’s pace is faster than in single-player!”
