Amplitude Studios has released the first gameplay trailer for Endless Dungeon, an upcoming sci-fi roguelite and tower defense game that is the latest entry in their Endless universe series. Endless Dungeon will be releasing for PC and consoles in 2022.
Endless Dungeon blends together roguelite action RPG gameplay with tower defence elements. Trapped on a mysterious space station, you need to lead your team of heroes through battles against never-ending waves of monsters, trying to protect your crystal as you go. If you die, it’ll be back to the start to try again.
The trailer outlines some of the key concepts running through the game in the form of four rules:
- Rule #1 – Certain weapons work best against certain monsters. Learn them for a leg up in the twin-stick action!
- Rule #2 – Protect your crystal by placing turrets, because if it dies, you die.
- Rule #3 – Teamwork makes the dream work. You can either control a whole squad by your lonesome or test your skills with friends in multiplayer.
- Rule #4 – Adapt your squad by unlocking new heroes and changing them out as you please!
It’s building on the ideas found in Dungeon of the Endless, which came out back in 2020, though slathers it with much fancier graphics. Still, that game was an enjoyable romp, and in our review for Dungeon of the Endless, Gareth wrote:
Dungeon of the Endless combines the roguelite and tower defence genres in a way that makes it deeper than the sum of its parts. It’s challenging, but rewarding, and if you’re a fan of the roguelite genre, then this is one of the most interesting ones from the last few years.
