PQube (London, UK) - 6th April 2022 - PQube and developer Playstark are pleased to release the first of the big Early Access updates to rogue-lite shooter Die After Sunset!
Die After Sunset is a 3rd person roguelite with a unique light and darkness mechanic; enemies get stronger in the shadows! In a race against the inevitable sunset, it’s up to you to tool up with an astonishing array of items, gadgets and weapons to help you take down colossal Murkor bosses! But remember, death is not the end – for every defeat will only make you stronger. Collect Mukus from the fallen Murkors and cash it in, back at base to empower yourself for your next run!

Die After Sunset - Update 1 features:

  • Brand new level  - Visit the icy village of Yggdrasil and aid their fight against the Murkor threat.
  • New Items - Tool up with brand new items like the 'Pocket Shield' and 'Fire Drone'!
  • New Boss - Something evil lurks at the heart of the village... Be careful once sunset comes around...
  • Bug Fixes & Game Balancing - Huge amount of bug fixes, game balancing and unlocks; with submachine-gunning cyborg 'Rido' available to play straight away!

More to come! Multiple updates adding everything from co-op gameplay to brand new characters and levels are all planned for the coming months.
