Roboquest Hits Xbox Game Preview (and Game Pass)

Roboquest is a fast-paced action-FPS infused with roguelite mechanics… and it’s available now in Xbox Game Preview and with Game Pass!

Roboquest (Early Access game) offers a subtle blend of thrilling gameplay, satisfying gunplay and roguelite replayability. All of that supported by an adrenaline pumping soundtrack.

It originally came to PC Game Pass in February 2022 and received many major updates since then. We thoroughly listened to community feedback and improved it, and it’s finally coming to consoles!

Here are a few reasons why you might want to take a look at our beloved game:

Fast-paced Gameplay

Roboquest is designed to provide an action-packed experience with intense gunplay that will challenge your skills. The game features several movement mechanics allowing you to run ‘n’ gun through the levels, dodging the enemy bullet hell, and zooming in and onto the numerous enemies. Getting out of there alive is mandatory as death is… permanent.

Permadeath and Basecamp

Failing will mean starting fresh from start… or is it? You will indeed have to start a new run upon dying, but you will get to progressively upgrade your basecamp each time, granting you persisting and permanent rewards that will grow your panel of customization options during each run.

Guardian Classes

Roboquest offers a variety of unlockable classes to choose from, each with their own unique abilities and playstyle. Lead an army of drones, blast enemies with powerful rockets, or quickly dash in and out of the fight to take down key targets.

Build Customization

In addition to choosing your class, you will get to customize it along the way. Get unique perks, branch them with specific upgrades, and find either the perfect combination or the one you like best. Or both at once. Tailor your playstyle as you wish.

Weapon Diversity

A diverse arsenal of robot-lethal weapons awaits you in Roboquest. Whether it’s from the regular shotgun-rifle-sniper trinity or from the more exotic ones like bubble-gun, flare guns, chainsaw or even laser-disk propelling things, Roboquest will probably have you covered.

Co-Op Experience

Experience all of that altogether with a friend of yours in 2-player cooperation. Either recruit your best friend or find one online to tackle the game’s challenge head-on, together. Across all our supported platforms.

Here at RyseUp Studios, we’re planning the full release somewhere in 2023.

The game is now available in preview for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows 10 and 11, and Xbox Game Pass.

We hope to see you there and in the meantime, we wish you a great robot smashing experience in Roboquest.

Now go and kick some metal ass!
