We first covered Sigtrap Games‘ 6DoF (six degrees of freedom) Descent-like shooter, Sublevel Zero way back when it was shown off at GAMAYO 8, in early 2015. The game’s retro-cool graphics, smooth, arcade-style movement, and procedural levels made for an interesting game. The rogue-like gameplay (including permadeath) meant a challenge for most players.
Now, 18 months after the PC launch, the game has arrived on consoles. Both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners can grab the game from their respective digital stores, but a few lucky PS4 fans can grab a limited edition boxed copy thanks to Signature Edition Games. The ‘Redux’ version of the game promises to be bigger, prettier, and even harder, with improvements to gameplay and story. There’s also going to be some news coming up about the PC version too.
We’re incredibly proud to announce that Sublevel Zero is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the form of Sublevel Zero Redux!
Redux is an expanded, enhanced and remastered version of Sublevel Zero, and we’ve taken this opportunity to improve upon the original. With a revamped campaign, difficulty levels, a teleporter system, new enemies and unlockable elite variants of existing enemies, we’ve refined and extended loads of the game. We’ve put a lot of hard work into it and we’re very proud of the result!
But if you’re not a console gamer, don’t worry – we’re not going to leave PC gamers behind! More news before long…
So – if you’re interested in playing the first Descent-like 6DoF shooter on console in over a decade, Sublevel Zero Redux awaits! You can find links to buy on the PS4 and Xbox stores on the Sublevel Zero page, buy a limited PS4 Signature Edition boxed copy with collector’s art book and remastered OST CD, or buy a boxed retail copy for PS4 online.
When it came out on PC, Sublevel Zero got a good few hours of playthrough at presstojump HQ. It’s a tense, challenging game, especially if you’re not a master at rogue-like gameplay. Even with procedurally created levels, the game has a good pace, with fast run-and-gun moments interspersed with exploration and raiding loot. It sounds like this version offers much more for fans!
Grab Sublevel Zero Redux on the PlayStation Store and Microsoft Store for £15.99 as a digital download, out now. You can also grab the limited-run boxed PS4 version thanks to Signature Edition Games for £30.
