Gunfire Reborn is extremely popular on Steam. Now the roguelite is also coming for the Xbox Series X, even for free in the Game Pass. It was high time.
Cologne – Finding a game that you want to play is not always easy. Sometimes the setting doesn’t fit, sometimes the gameplay doesn’t feel right. Sometimes you just don’t feel like throwing yourself into a massive 50-hour adventure. Gunfire Reborn has the potential to circumvent all of that, as it’s the perfect casual game. We previewed it at Gamescom 2022 ahead of Xbox Series X/S release.
Gunfire Reborn at Gamescom 2022 – Roguelite at its finest for Xbox Series X/S
Game principle is simple but good: Gunfire Reborn is a plush-themed roguelite first-person shooter. That means we fight our way through procedurally generated levels and have to survive as long as possible. If we die, we take part of the progress with us in the form of skill points. This makes further runs easier. We play one of a total of six cute animal characters. However, they are not for cuddling. Each character brings their own destructive skill set that significantly affects playstyle.
The differences for the console are not big: Gunfire Reborn was released for PC last year. at Steam the shooter costs 16.79 euros. The roguelite is very popular there. So a port to the Xbox Series X/S was only a matter of time. Not much has changed in the game itself, it’s just been optimized for the console. This worked beautifully too, as the game feels incredibly accurate on console and plays flawlessly.
