Announcement of Genesis Alpha One Launch

 

-      Genesis Alpha One for PC to launch exclusively on recently launched Epic Games Store

-      Game will simultaneously launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

 

Team17, a global games label, creative partner and developer of independent ("indie"), premium video games, is pleased to announce that Genesis Alpha One will launch on 29 January 2019 and is available immediately for pre-order.  

 

The announcement of the launch of Genesis Alpha One was made at The Game Awards, the flagship awards ceremony for the gaming industry, held yesterday in Los Angeles.

 

The game will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and on PC exclusively via the recently launched Epic Games store. The Epic Games store is a new digital distribution platform selling to PC gamers, which offers developers 88% of revenues from games sales.

 

The game has been co-developed with German-based independent games developer, Radiation Blue. Genesis Alpha One is a sci-fi roguelike first-person shooter game, which puts the player in the role of an interstellar pioneer, on the ultimate mission to save the human species from extinction.

 

Debbie Bestwick MBE, Chief Executive Officer of Team17, commented:

 

"We are delighted today to announce the launch of Genesis Alpha One. The collaboration with Radiation Blue demonstrates our capabilities in partnering with international games developers to bring high quality games to market.

 

"We have had a relationship with Epic since 1991 and are very supportive of their new platform. We are therefore pleased to be launching the PC version exclusively on the Epic platform, which offers significant opportunities for both developers and gamers alike."
