Co-operative multiplayer shooter Arcadegeddon will launch officially on July 5, developer Illfonic has announced.

The setup has the owner of a failing arcade trying to save his business from a faceless mega corporation. To do so, the owner of the arcade linked a bunch of his arcade machines together to create a ‘super game’. However, a virus has infected the game thanks to the megacorp and unleashed hordes of digital beasties. Naturally that means you & up to three friends have to jack into the super-game to blast these viruses into oblivion.

The arcade conceit means that the game features six varied biomes, with their own challenges. Along the way, you’ll recruit up to eleven local gangs who’ll also set you a range of challenges to unlock special abilities. These include fireballs, health drones and much more. You’ll get to choose your loadout from 35 weapons, and there’s more challenges to unlock too.

Originally, Arcadegeddon has been in early access on PC and PlayStation 5 since last summer. The full game will see everyone start afresh and see Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players able to join the fray with full crossplay support between all formats. However, to thank those who played in Early Access, they’ll get an Adopters bundle. This will include a special appreciation outfit, a decoration in Gilly’s Arcade and XP and currency boosts.

Arcadegeddon arrives on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC on July 5. You can check out the game’s original Early Access trailer below. Developer Illfonic will next be working on another multiplayer co-op shooter, this time set in the Ghostbusters universe.
