Earthfall Aims to Fill the Co-Op Shooter Hole in Our Hearts

Left 4 Dead-inspired co-op FPS Earthfall hits PC and consoles today, and developer Holospark has released a shiny new launch trailer to get everyone nice and pumped to take out alien swarms.

Playing like a Steven Spielberg action movie, Earthfall pits four players working together against aliens who have come to wipe us out across a series of story-based campaigns. The game features a “dynamic spawn system” promising constantly changing enemy tactics and variation from human-sized alien to plasma-spitting Kaiju-esque creatures. Players will use a combination of firepower and tower-defense mechanics like blockades and turrets to fend off the alien hordes.

The game also features “MixPlay Mixer Integration,” wherein players who are streaming on Microsoft’s Twitch-like streaming service can be affected by viewers who can spawn aliens, drop health packs, or choose a team member to be targeted by mobs.
