After it’s announcement two months ago, XDEV Studio Europe has finally revealed the release date for Resogun’s second expansion called Resogun Defenders, which will be releasing on February 17th for $4.99 and is free of charge to those who bought the season pass.
Both “Protector” and “Commando” modes will be added via the expansion pack which adds new ships, new planets, as well as some of Housemarque’s “most detailed artwork to date.” Additionally, a “major content patch” will be released for all players alongside the expansion. This patch, code named “Challengers”, will bring new challenges and feats across all existing game modes, and let you earn challenge points to increase your pilot rank.
In Protector mode, you must defend defend one of the last human colonies remaining. You will be using all new power-ups including Super Boost, Teleport, and automatic city defenses. You will have to take down the enemy and deliver as many of the last humans to each city in order to extend your grip on the planet. Protector Mode features an all new planet flip mechanic and environmental hazards such as volcanic meteors to avoid while fighting off the never-ending enemy invasion.
In Commando mode, the player will play as the Last Human who was left behind. Stranded on a distant planet with only a mini-gun to defend himself, he takes the fight directly to the Sentients in the ultimate arcade revenge mode. You will have to jump, boost and equip your favorite bandana as you aim to defend your home from waves of enemies, volcanic meteors and more in this all new mode.
