From Press Release:
Ziggurat Interactive today announced a summer 2021 release for ExZeus: The Complete Collection. Set for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch, the collection includes the original game and its sequel, ExZeus 2, both updated to run on modern PCs and consoles by developer Sickhead Games. In the ExZeus games, players control a heavily armed flying mech in humanity’s last-ditch effort to save the planet from an alien invasion.
ExZeus will debut on PC and Switch for the first time, while ExZeus 2 will appear on PlayStation and Switch for the first time.
In this classic rail-shooter series, players pilot towering mechs as they race through cities, forests, and caverns dodging enemy attacks while unleashing their own powerful energy and explosive weapons. After battling through waves of enemy minions, brave mech pilots must take on their towering alien overlords!
With ExZeus: The Complete Collection, players will get to dive into these action-packed arcade classics:
ExZeus: Now on PC and Switch for the first time. A ferocious alien entity, the Diadora, has devastated the planet, forcing the surviving population to retreat underground. The world’s governments have ordered an immediate counterattack, using one of three experimental robots, Sophia, Calista, and Dynamis. Select your mech and unleash powerful attacks, collect power-ups, upgrade your mechs, and rock out to a high-energy soundtrack in this arcade classic.
ExZeus 2: Now for the first time on PlayStation and Switch. Taking place a century after ExZeus, the world is finally at peace following the deadly war against the Diadora; however, a new enemy from above threatens to disrupt this tranquil new world. Hope lies in unearthing the three mech heroes born of the ExZeus project, fused together to form the almighty Minos — a powerful new robot capable of preserving the peace. Suit up pilots, it’s time for another battle!
ExZeus: The Complete Collection arrives on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch later this summer.
