Alkemi’s action rpg shoot-em-up Drifting Lands has left Early Access on Steam with today’s official launch. Since its initial Early Access release, Drifting Lands has maintained a ‘Very Positive’ rating among Steam players. Alongside the official release, we also have a new trailer which can be seen below.

The new trailer, which clocks in at 1 minute and 22 seconds doesn’t show off gameplay, but it does offer a pretty sweet narrative of the games premise.

Unlike other shoot-em-ups, the developers are trying to do something different with Drifting Lands, offering action rpg elements that they describe as a Diablo-like game with horizontal shoot-em-up core gameplay mechanics. The game offers players randomly generated levels, so the replayability of Drifting Lands is virtually endless. Similar to other RPG’s, the game also features various different active and passive powers that can be used to assist the player in combat.

The game will feature randomly generated missions, 100 levels of difficulty, 70 active and passive powers, a complex item generation system with stat modifiers, 3 different classes to choose from, and a lush fantasy universe as its landscape.

If this is your first time hearing about Drifting Lands, here is a quick description of the game:

In the skies of a shattered planet, totalitarian corporations battle to control and exploit nature’s remaining resources, but you are not like them. As a new member in a caravan of outlaws, smugglers, and mercenaries, you fight for the right to survive and be free.

In Drifting Lands, your ship is made to your specifications and style. Play it fast and precise, buzzing enemy fire to get in close with your blade skills. Play it slow and defensively, using your shields to protect you before unleashing a wave of heavy artillery. With Drifting Lands‘ mind-boggling array of potential weapon, skill, stat, and part configurations, it’s almost impossible for two ships to ever be alike.

Drifting Lands is currently available on PC via Steam for $18.99. Players who pick up the game between now and June 19 can get it with a nice 20% discount, bringing the game to $15.19.
