Thunderful has announced that Swordship, a stylish shoot 'em up where you have to turn your enemies weapons on each other, is coming to Xbox in September.
In Swordship, your titular ship has no weapons on board. Playing as a smuggler in a post-apocolyptic world, following the devastating effects of global warning, having a light and fast ship stripped of weapons is the best way to survive. Speeding away from approaching enemies, you'll have to dodge out of the way of their weapons instead of taking them on directly, tricking them into firing at each other, with some slick and skilful movement.
The game looks really gorgeous in action, and its self-proclaimed “dodge ‘em up” moniker seems to offer up a really unique take on the shoot ’em up genre. You can check it out in action in the new trailer down below.
Swordship is coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in September.
