If you forgot the Awesomenauts
were supposed to be jetting onto Xbox One, that's understandable, since it was well over two years ago that it was first announced
. The platformer MOBA has been receiving regular updates on PC and PS4 and will be bringing along those updates to the Xbox One version in the form of Awesomenauts Assemble!
, launching next month. Awesomenauts
currently boasts a roster of 26 characters, quite an upgrade from the eight currently available in the Xbox 360 version. The game is still a 3v3 side-scroller combining elements of platformers, MOBAs and more, playable with up to two other players in splitscreen.
The developers at Ronimo Games discussed and streamed the Xbox One version for well over an hour in the video below:
will be available on Xbox One on September 7th. To celebrate the launch, for a limited time the "Starstorm Expansion" DLC characters will be offered for free with Awesomenauts Assemble!
, but only during the small window of September 7th-12th. The five bonus characters are Ted McPain, Sneaky Sentry X-58, Skree, Honorary Star Scout Penny Fox and Nibbs. The store page
is up, but has no pricing as of this writing. Awesomenauts Assemble!
retails for US$9.99 on PC and PS4. The "Starstorm Expansion" characters are valued at US$6.49.
