Today indie developer Novarama published a new developer commentary video presenting the pulp sci-fi Killsquad universe. The video delves deeper into the lore of Killsquad and goes into more detail about the three worlds that will be available on Steam Early Access on July 16th. Novarama also revealed that Killsquad will be priced at $19.99 / €19.99 / 16.99£.
Wasteland 7A, Kemmekh and the Palace of Pain are the three planets featured in the Killsquad Early Access build. Each planet has its own unique landscapes, enemies and, in turn, risks. From dangerous turrets and mines on the Palace of Pain to fatal meteor storms on Kemmekh, each world is out to get you. The hostile surroundings become even more dangerous as vicious enemies like Helldörren and Gorus roam around for prey. Players take on contracts and traverse these perilous grounds searching for resources in order to get their hands on bounties offered by powerful organizations fighting for the control of the universe.
Today Novarama releases the next tutorial video in the series, presenting the fourth hero, Zero, a former Medical Combat Robot, to join the bounty hunter crew in the futuristic co-op ARPG, Killsquad, coming to Steam Early Access on July 16th.
Zero’s empathy circuits were wired wrong, resulting in a reckless behaviour, psychopathy and murder. He’s an offensive support character capable of both healing his allies and decimating his enemies – exactly what a Killsquad needs! Zero uses laser attacks to blast multiple adversaries at once and the more damage he does, the more healing kits he’s able to generate.

Barcelona, Spain — June 25th, 2019 — Independent developer Novarama are pleased to announce their top-down co-op action RPG, Killsquad, has now confirmed the Steam Early Access launch for PC on July 16th. Killsquad is set within a futuristic world that combines a space western style with the top down look and feel of a traditional RPG with fast-paced action.
With a successful showing at E3 having received three award nominations, including Unreal’s ‘Most Engaging Game’, Novarama are setting their sights on making their mark in the action RPG arena with their own brand of compelling futuristic pulp sci-fi action.
“We are extremely pleased with the reception Killsquad got from everyone at E3, which proves that we’re onto a great concept,” said Dani Sanchez-Crespo, Game Director at Novarama. “The Early Access build is the first time we’re going to open the doors into the Killsquad universe. Though only a sample of what we have in mind, our Early Access version will have everything from smooth controls, action-packed gameplay to plenty of content to keep RPG fans coming back for more. We are looking forward to working with our community on shaping it into a truly great co-op action game.”
Killsquad revolves around quick session-oriented missions featuring an in-depth loot and class system with procedurally generated levels ensuring an intense, action-based single and multiplayer experience. Players can select one of 4 different heroes to play, each of which has their own distinct capabilities based on their class: Assassin, Warrior, Specialist or Support. Killsquad’s class system means players have access to plenty of skill and upgradeable gear options to completely customize their chosen character including their appearance with character skins.
With community at its core, Killsquad introduces a live contract system allowing players to join other players and tag along in an open contract for a share of loot and kudos as they take down various nefarious enemies and boss characters while navigating dynamic planets that pose as much of a threat as the enemy inhabitants do. With a variety of different weapons and contracts to unlock as well as equipment to acquire, players have a seemingly endless selection of options to utilize in a deadly universe that’s always active.
Today Novarama releases another tutorial video in the series, presenting the third hero, Cass, to join the bounty hunter crew in the futuristic co-op ARPG, Killsquad, soon coming to Steam Early Access.
Players can select one of 4 different heroes to play, each with their own distinct class-based capabilities, including Assassin, Warrior, Specialist or Support. In recent weeks Novarama has introduced these character classes in a series of profile trailers, the latest of which launches today with Cass as the Assassin, a melee character featuring a frenetic and agile combat style. Cass punishes enemies with cold sharp steel, slashing anyone who stands in her way while she plays with opponents’ minds using invisibility and teleportation skills.
Each class takes skill to master and can also be upgraded as well as completely customized with a variety of weapons, character skins and tactical accessories.
