Aeon must die! is a galaxy spanning brawler with a unique anime-inspired art style and a massive story of betrayal, love and revenge across a shattered universe.
A spectacular beat’em-up filled with brutal, over-the-top action and anime-inspired art like you’ve never seen before
You play as the new host of Aeon, the Emperor of the Symbiotic Universe and recently overthrown. After struggling for control of your body, you and Aeon must embark on a violent journey through the stars; you must save the last of your kind, while Aeon seeks revenge. It’s a pastiche of classic movies like Road Warrior, Yojimbo, with more modern influences like Gurren Lagann. With Aeon and your trusty Sentient Bike by your side, you’ll have to negotiate, fight, and / or betray the four warring factions and their generals.
Travel through the futuristic city of the Pantheon to destroy or subdue those who betrayed Aeon, while fighting for your mind, free will, and control of your body.
Aeon’s invincible armor is the only way to clear your way to your goal. That’s right, the armor is indestructible, which means you can’t die (at least, not in the traditional sense). You will have to use a mixture of normal and special moves to fight and combine enemies into oblivion. The normal moves heat Aeon up and the specials, while devastating, cool him down.
Feast your eyes on the bundle of new screenshots released today, showcasing the game’s unique and cartoon-inspired art style.
Immerse yourself in interstellar combat with the raw gameplay trailer and prepare for an existential sci-fi slaughter on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC starting October 14!
First-time buyers who purchase the game before October 28 will receive the Wrathful King Set DLC for free, which includes a skin for Aeon and his motorcycle!
Overheating Aeon gives you free rein to unleash as many special moves as you want without the cost of heat, but one hit negates the defeat. Excessive cooling causes Aeon to reach his state of exhaustion, where he cannot use special moves, and will be defeated in one fell swoop.
Each defeat you suffer leaves you with an important choice: will you get up and fight again? Or will you die with honor? Getting up to fight once more will shake your mental barrier, leaving Aeon closer to your heart. He will start to manipulate your choices, affect your decisions, and drop the pieces where he wants. Choosing to die is to restart your adventure, but keeping all the upgrades and progression that you have unlocked. Does it sound difficult? Well, there is a third option … but we won’t reveal it just yet.
Choose who you kill or spare and change the fate of the galaxy
Experience a unique beat’em-up introducing jaw-dropping gameplay, risk-rewards, innovative tactical combat, and an RPG roster system that tracks your behavior as a warrior. Will you succumb to Aeon’s will and unleash his power, losing yourself in the process? Or will you choose the difficult path and remain free, at the cost of your strength?
Aeon must die! arrives on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC (Steam) on October 14, 2021.
