Jamestown+ gets an official release date for the PC and Switch versions of the critically-acclaimed co-op top-down bullet hell shooter. The original game, Jamestown, was released back in 2011 from the three-man development team Final Form Games. The developers take their inspiration from cooperative games such as Left 4 Dead and Rock Band. The game features an excellent 1-4 player co-op ability that allows players to pair up with their friends and tackle the never-ending storm of gunfire. Jamestown has won numerous awards including “PC Game of the Year” from Co-Optimus.
What is Jamestown+?
Jamestown+ is the newly updated version of the award-winning fan-favorite ‘bullet heaven’ co-op game. The game takes place on a 17th-Century British Colonial Mars. It combines classic arcade-style gameplay with modern design influences. The game features beginner-friendly gameplay but can also accommodate up to four players at the hardest difficulties. The soon to release Jamestown+ includes:
- New ships with new attacks and customizable weapon systems
- New levels including the mysterious moons Phobos and Deimos
- A new chapter to the original story of Jamestown that “spans space and time, adds new dimension to established characters and locations and finishes what the original game started.
- A ground-up remastered soundtrack from celebrated composer Francisco Cerda
Playstation 4 owners of the game need not fear, though, as the plus update will come to them for free.
