Including both cross-buy and cross-save, Rocketbirds 2: Evolution from Ratloop will be released exclusively for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on April 26 in North America and Europe.
Discussing the new features in Rocketbirds 2, Ratloop’s Sian Yue Tan explained the new Rescue Mode, which he says is essentially a meta-collection game:
In Rescue Mode, up to four friends (online or offline) can go on missions to find hidden items and artifacts while rescuing hostages deep behind enemy lines. Each time you free a hostage, they’ll join your team as a new, fully-customizable playable character. Rescue Mode features four procedurally-generated locations to loot and explore as well as four different weapon stores to buy new weapons and ammunition from.
We created more than forty unlockable weapons — including rifles, shotguns, pistols, launchers, and melee weapons — to use in the fight against the penguin regime! We picked fun, iconic weapons and leveraged the unique traits of those weapons to make each work differently and cater to varying play styles.
You’ll also find a six-chapter single-player Story Mode campaign where Hardboiled finds out iL Putzki is still alive and goes to end him once and for all.
