Yars: Recharged announced, the latest in Atari’s Recharged entries, releasing August 23rd for consoles and PC

From Press Release:

It’s nearly time to go bug-wild, as Atari has announced an August 23, 2022, launch date for Yars: Recharged, the latest entry in the publisher’s popular Atari Recharged series. Complementing the announcement, Atari has also dropped a brand new teaser trailer depicting the game’s entrancing bullet hell gameplay and neo-retro aesthetic.

Yars: Recharged is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, Switch, Atari VCS, Stadia, and PC via Steam and the Epic store.

🐝 Yars: Recharged thrusts players to the center of a daring attack against the enemy homeworld, guarded by mechanical hives that pulse deadly cannons and emit flurries of swirling missiles.

🏹 Find pockets of safety amongst the hail of incoming fire, and then dart forward in daring forays to chip away at the enemy’s defenses.

💥 Gather enough energy by destroying enemy shields to power up the massively destructive Zorlon cannon, and use its pulsing, searing blasts of cosmic energy to annihilate enemies.

🎯 Yars: Recharged challenges players to remain acutely aware of visual and audio cues that hint at impending danger, and master the smooth flying controls as they navigate increasingly complex levels.

Yars: Recharged and the entirety of the Atari Recharged series is made in collaboration with developers Adamvision Studios and SneakyBox. Award-winning artist and composer Megan McDuffee created the beat-heavy, pulsing original soundtrack. Yars: Recharged will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, Switch, Atari VCS, Stadia, and PC via Steam and the Epic store on August 23, 2022.
