Weekend Announcements July 13-15th: Remnant: From the Ashes, Airheart and More

By Rebecca Smith, 1 month ago
Another weekend has come and gone, and there are more titles that have nearly sneaked past us unnoticed. We have five new titles that we haven't met before, three of which are confirmed for Xbox One. The remaining two are appearing on "consoles". You can meet them below and see if there is anything that captures your attention.

Airheart

Blindflug Studios' upcoming "diesel-punk action game" sees players take on the role of Amelia. The young pilot lives in Granaria, a floating city amongst the clouds, and she wants to reach the world's edge. To do this, she needs to fly her plane over the islands, support herself through sky fishing, defeat pirates to earn scrap to upgrade her plane, and overcome a variety of other dangers that will get in her way. The game is coming first to PC and PlayStation 4 on July 24th, the birthday of the team's inspiration Amelia Earhart, but will then make its way to "additional consoles" in the weeks following its release.


Fall of Light: Darkest Edition

RuneHeads' "story-driven action RPG" tells the story of a world where there is no natural light. Players step into the shoes of Nyx, a warrior embarking on a dangerous journey to reach the only place on Earth where sunlight still exists. He isn't alone, though; the warrior is accompanied by his daughter, Aether, who is an indigo child and can produce her own luminescence to light the way, but she needs protection if she's to reach their destination. The title originally launched on Steam last year but will arrive on Xbox One this summer with original content, such as a new dungeon, new enemies, new traps, and new weapons.


Little Misfortune

Killmonday Games' upcoming "interactive story" shares the same world as the developer's previous title, Fran Bow. Misfortune Ramirez Hernandez is an eight-year-old girl seeking to find Eternal Happiness so she can gift it to her mother. Alongside her new friend Mr. Voice, she heads into the woods where she finds mysteries and a bit of bad luck. The story focuses on exploration and characters, not all of whom are pleasant, and player choices will have consequences. The team promises that you may "pet a doggy, a fishy, a wolfie, the Kraken, the kitty and the foxy". You'll also be visiting a pet cemetary with a shovel, so read into that what you will. The title is due to arrive on consoles next year.


Override: Mech City Brawl

Developer The Balance Inc. has teamed up with publisher Modus Games to bring their "3D mech-based party brawler" to Xbox One. Players take control of their own mech and take on other enormous robots in fully destructible arenas inspired by real life cities and countries, such as San Francisco, Egypt, Mexico, and Japan. Each of the 12 mechs has their own speciality moves and playstyles, and they're all customisable with accessories and skins that can be unlocked as players progress. Alongside the campaign comes a variety of multiplayer modes for up to four players, and a 2-4 player co-op mode where each person takes control of one part of the same mech. The title is due to arrive on December 4th.


Remnant: From the Ashes

Darksiders 3 developer Gunfire Games has joined forces with publisher Perfect World Entertainment for another title they have in development. The "survival-action shooter" paints a bleak future. Earth has been taken over by aliens and the only way humanity will survive is to head to alternate dimensions. Together with up to three other players (or on your own if you wish), you'll need to defeat the enemies and bosses that occupy the "dynamically-generated" levels while trying to find what it is for which the aliens are searching. The title is due to arrive on Xbox One next year.
