Pioneers: 2D game for the Internet is coming to the PC
Pioneers 2D arcade game for PC will arrive next week, developer The Frontier Group announced today.
The game is set to launch on Steam, Xbox Live Arcade, and iOS in the coming months.
It’s a first-person arcade game that focuses on “classic” arcade-style action.
Pioneers, which is set in a small town in rural America, has players controlling two different characters that battle each other for dominance of a town called “Pioneer”.
Pioneers was announced back in March as a follow-up to its debut title The Frontier, a 3D platformer which launched on Nintendo Switch earlier this year.
Pioneered has been a success, with players enjoying it in over 100 countries around the world.
Pioneering, which features a wide variety of game modes, will have players competing in three different modes: Arcade, Arcade Classic, and Arcade Challenge.
“This is the ultimate sandbox, where you can do what you want with your character and take turns playing,” said The Frontier group’s Matt Roussell in a statement.
“You will be able to play as your favorite characters from the original game or as new ones.
PioneERS 2D is a brand new game with tons of content, and we’re thrilled to be bringing this game to the world.”
Pioneers also has a strong developer team working on the title, with co-founder and co-lead artist Tim O’Brien helping with programming.
Pioneer, which also includes a number of other games, including a free-to-play action game, will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Android devices.
Pioneiers 2D will be released in 2018.
The Frontier has previously announced a number different games, like a “classic 2D” game for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita called Pioneers Classic, as well as the upcoming “pioneering 2D”, a “traditional 2D adventure” for the PlayStation 4.
