30XX Enters Steam Early Access February 17


Batterystaple Games have announced the Early Access release date for their Mega Man X-inspired roguelite platformer, 30XX.

30XX is set a thousand years after the original, after humanity has been enslaved by the Synthetic Mind. Play as either Ace or Nina and shoot your way through procedurally generated levels to overthrow the robot overlords.

The Early Access version releases on February 17thfor Windows PC via Steam, and will come with 6 level themes, online and local co-op, the Mega Mode for gamers who don’t want to play the main permadeath mode, and a level editor. Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions will come later.

You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:

The Year is…
30XX combines the crisp controls and fluid movement you love from action platformers like Mega Man X, the replayability of a modern Roguelike (Binding of Isaac, Enter the Gungeon, Dead Cells, etc) and co-op play into a single gorgeous package.

Awaken a thousand years after 20XX to realize the world that needed you is gone, changed irreversibly by the advent of the Synthetic Mind and a human race that’s lost the will to reach for the stars. Explore the lush, verdant prison our world has become, and fight to save what remains.

Rise. Fight. Fall. Adapt. There’s a sublime meaning in this endless cycle, somewhere, buried deep.


  • Pulse-pounding action, precise platforming, and beautiful spritework
  • Characters with fully distinct playstyles – master Ace’s swift, combo-friendly Techniques and Nina’s intricate Power Fusion system for even more replayability
  • A fresh new set of levels, items, and powers every time you play – 30XX is never the same game twice!
  • Roguelike-style progression that lets you tune the game’s systems and difficulty as you play, even after you win
  • A robust level editor – the same tools the developers use! – that lets you build single level chunks or entire custom campaigns
  • Local and online multiplayer, so you can enjoy 30XX with a friend
