With a gameplay premise, presentation, and production values similar to those found in a triple-A game, Pentadimensional Games has been developing Megaton Rainfall for some time without making too much noise. until now. You'll have to use your vast powers to defend Earth from alien invaders, but your superhuman abilities can inadvertently destroy the people you're charged with protecting. According to the announcement trailer, the first-person superhero simulator will release next month on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR.
Megaton Rainfall fills the market gap of "games that let you control an indestructible superbeing who can fly at supersonic speeds across the Earth facing a global alien invasion and preventing the destruction of one city after another". The game features fully destructible environment, buildings are procedurally generated and destructible. At the beginning, you'll be limited to exploring the Earth, "from the bottom of the ocean to the stratosphere", but during the course of the game you'll gain the ability to "fly to the Moon or walk across the surface of the Sun". While the player character is invincible, each city has a health bar that diminishes with each alien attack, or if you miss your target and accidentally demolish a skyscraper. The gigaton blast can destroy an enemy mothership or the entire city. Yes, you can optionally play the full experience in PlayStation VR.
Megaton Rainfall releases for PS4 (including a PSVR mode) and PC on September 26, and we expect to try it out at Gamescom.
