Wardens Rising combines fast-paced action and MOBA-like base defense into one uniquely thrilling PvE Coop Action Hero Shooter. In this genre-bending experience heroes must protect vital energy core across the realm from massive enemy invasions – armed with their special abilities and customizable loadout of technology including tactical items, defense towers, interdimensional artifacts and a SPEC companion. Between invasions upgrade your hero and gear as well as unlock new content to equip to your loadout configuration. A wide variety of content, customizable hero loadouts, alternative game modes, procedurally generated content, and the ability to create invasions provide tons of replay-ability.
Six hero-classes are planned each with a unique fighting style and special abilities .Each Warden class has a set of special abilities + a customizable loadout of technology that you upgrade and expand over time. Each Warden has a unique core ranged attack and 4 special abilities including an "Ultimate Ability". In addition to special abilities, all Wardens can dodge, sprint, jump and glide through the air. Overtime you can upgrade your hero’s core statistics and abilities.
A wide variety of tactical items can be unlocked, upgraded and equipped to compliment your strategy for defeating invasions. Tactical items include traps, air strikes, illusions, walls, teleportation portals, healing auras, energy shields and more!
The defense towers chosen for your loadout will provide you with the support needed to defeat 100’s of enemies in a single battle. Each defense tower has a unique ability and upgrade options. Defensive towers are vulnerable to attack so command you SPEC to repair damaged towers before they are destroyed.
Each SPEC companion (a tech-energy hybrid lifeform) provides your Warden a unique buff and attack as well as performs several critical functions to aid you in battle including: tower and power-node repairs, Synthesis Energy boosting, and Soul Energy collection. Each SPEC has unique stats that can be upgraded overtime which determine their effectiveness at each task.
Wardens use Soul Energy collected from dead enemies by their SPEC to power tactical items and Synthesis Energy that is generated by the Core and Power-Nodes to build and upgrade defense towers. Your SPEC collects Soul Energy nearby while at your side or can be commanded to boost Synthesis Energy production by travelling to the core. The amount of Synthesis Energy provided by the Core and Power-Nodes is based on the number of active Power-Nodes so it’s critical to keep them online.
As you defeat invasions you can unlock new technology, new regions, and newer more difficult invasions to defend as well as upgrade your hero, SPEC, and tactical items. Each region has more than one invasion challenge, each becoming more difficult, and a random invasion which is different every time. Track your hero’s achievements and earn badges for your skill defending each region.
You can Play Wardens Rising Solo or Co-op with up to 4 players. Combine quick-thinking, strategic planning and teamwork to defeat massive invasions.
Alternative Game Modes
Wardens Rising is planning to include alternative game modes like "random" invasions, endless mode, and a create invasion mode either at launch or as product updates post launch.
The discovery of Synthesis changed the fate of humanity, and the universe forever. Its extraordinary power enabled unprecedented control over all matter and energy, while unveiling and releasing supernatural forces.
Humanity learned to harness the power of its cores, fueling their resurgence from the brink of extinction. After years of peace and prosperity inter-dimensional rifts appeared across the realm, revealing a new existential threat.
Dangerous beings came through the rifts, unrelenting in their pursuit of Synthesis, and began invading the Cores. To prevent catastrophe, an elite fighting force called WARDENS was assembled, each member possessing extraordinary talents and the ability to control Synthesis.
With the fate of humanity at stake, the Wardens must Rise to destroy all invaders, close the rifts and return peace to our realm.
