APRIL 20th - Developer 12B3 is delighted to announce the launch of  deckbuilding battler EndCycle VS today on Steam and Android! 

With over 4,000 possible combinations of moves and 20 unique characters to choose from, EndCycle VS combines the pulse-pounding intensity of your favourite fighters with the tactical flair of a deckbuilding game.

Complete with a deep and mature  story mode, interwoven with themes of legacy, loss and love, EndCycle VS perfectly combines heart-racing action with heart-breaking moments. As the world hangs in the balance, players must find out if they have what it takes to stop the Noise and end the cycle.

But it doesn’t stop there! EndCycle VS also offers a variety of other modes, including a branching roguelike exploration experience that tasks players with taking out enemies only with powers they find along the way.
Players looking for something a little more competitive will enjoy the thrilling online cross-platform multiplayer. Players can choose whether to take down waves of enemies in cooperative play, or go head-to-head against each other in versus mode bouts!

Inspired by the legendary Mega Man Battle Network series, EndCycle VS drags retro-style battlers into the future, offering a thoroughly up to date spin on a beloved genre. 

After launching EndCycle VS via Steam Early Access in January 2019, duo developers 12B3 have worked tirelessly to listen to and implement fan feedback, such as the unique and easy-to-use Creative Centre on Steam where players can make their own maps, completely redesign the control layout, and bring their own character designs into the game.

Perfect for fans of the Mega Man Battle Network series, the original inspiration for this game, One Step From Eden and Slay the Spire; EndCycle VS blends modern mechanics with a retro feel to give players the exciting deckbuilding brawler they’ve been looking for. 

Developers 12B3 said: "We cannot wait for EndCycle VS to release and for more people to join us on this amazing journey. Together with it’s community EndCycle VS grows every day and becomes a better game with each new player!

EndCycle VS launches today at 3 PM BST / 10 AM EDT / 7 AM PDT on Steam priced $29.99 / £23.99 / €24.99

Also available from today on Android, players can try EndCycle VS on their portable device for free, or upgrade to the premium version for $5 / £5 / €5.
