This year most impressive game is Enter the Gungeon: Enter the Gungeon is really a bullet hell dungeon crawler after a group of misfits trying to take, loot, dodge roll and table-flip their way to personal absolution by hitting the mythical Gungeon’s ultimate treasure: the gun that can kill yesteryear. Pick a hero [or team up into co-op] and battle your way to the bottom of the Gungeon by occupying a tough and evolving series of floors filled with the dangerously cute Gundead and fearsome Gungeon directors armed to the teeth. Collect precious loot, find hidden secrets, and talk with opportunistic retailers and shopkeepers to buy powerful items to obtain an edge.
The Gungeoneers: Choose between one of several unlikely personalities, each burdened by a profound regret and in search of a means to modify their past, whatever the price tag. Filled with equal parts courage and desperation, these adventurers will not hesitate to dive across flaming walls, roll through a wall of bullets or just take cover behind whatever is about to make it for their target living!
The Cult of this Gundead: The Gungeon isn’t only cubes and chasms — calm your nerves and enhance your goal as you face down the gun-totting Cult of the Gundead. These disciples of this rifle will stop at nothing to set the heroes down in their paths and use any tactics required to defend their temple.
The Guns: Discover and unlock dozens of uniquely fantastic guns to annihilate all that oppose you at the Gungeon — each taking their own unusual tactics and ammunition. Unleash everything from the trustworthy medley of all missiles, lasers, and cannonballs to the effective volley of rainbows, bass, memory darts, along with bees! Yep, bees.
The Gungeon: Enter the Gungeon — a constantly climbing bullet hell fortress that blends meticulously hand-designed rooms within a procedurally-generated labyrinth bent on ruining all that go into its walls. But beware — the Gungeon reacts to even the smallest success from the sentries and traps by raising the stakes along with the challenges found within!
Enter the Gungeon’s last ever content update will arrive on Switch, Xbox One, PS4, and PC on April 5th, developer Dodge Roll Games has announced, marking three years since the wonderful rogue-like shooter’s initial release.
Fittingly, this final update is titled A Farewell to Arms, and adds a host of new features and quality of life improvements to the already meaty game. For starters, there’re two new playable characters (or Gungeoneers as they’re known) in the form of The Paradox and The Gunslinger. These will be joined by “dozens” of new guns and items, a new secret floor with its own boss, and a new NPC called Bowler, linked to the new community-inspired Rainbow Mode.
Players embarking on this trip-with-a-twist through the Gungeon are able to select one gun or item from a special Rainbow chest at the start of each floor. It’s important to choose wisely, however, as that’s all you’ll get, aside from regular pick-ups and Master Rounds.
