EXOR Studios has released a new video with 15-mins of uncut gameplay from its upcoming title, X-Morph: Defense. The footage below shows how the game looks and plays as it inches closer to its August 30 release date.

Here’s what X-Morph: Defense is all about:

You are the X-Morph – an alien species that invades Earth to harvest its resources and terraform the surface. Strategize in the build mode by carefully selecting various types of alien towers or throw yourself right into the heat of the battle. Build mazes for incoming enemies in an environment that provides exceptional planning freedom. Tear down buildings and collapse bridges to support your defense or to simply indulge in a spectacle of unprecedented destruction. Possess a range of unique alien weapons and use defense strategies like you’ve never seen before in this genre.

TOWER DEFENSE
– Build your towers anywhere on the map.
– Destroy obstacles, collapse buildings and bridges to change enemy paths.
– Connect towers with laser fences that block enemy movement.
– Smart enemies – there are no predefined enemy paths. Enemies adapt to the changing battlefield and your tower placement, making the challenge a lot more interesting.
– Advanced tower types – different kinds of enemies require different defense strategies. Build advanced towers to counter special enemies.

SHOOTER
– Don’t wait for your enemies – engage them directly with the X-Morph fighter.
– Morph into four distinct fighter forms, each one with a different weapon and special ability.

HUMAN MECHA
– Fight huge, building size, mechanical war machines. Each boss fight is unique and heavily influences the gameplay environment. Entire cities will be destroyed.

SPLIT SCREEN CO-OP
– Fend off the human threat with a friend at your side.

SINGLE PLAYER AND COOP STORY CAMPAIGNS
– Take over the Earth by invading locations all around the globe including South Africa, Russia, USA, Japan, China, Britain, Argentina and other countries.
– Upgrade your towers and abilities throughout the course of the story campaign.
– The entire story campaign is available in coop mode.
– Coop missions include additional enemy waves that create a new gameplay experience.
– Three difficulty modes.

X-Morph: Defense will release simultaneously for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $19.99.
