Developer Spitfire Interactive and publisher Daedalic Entertainment are teaming up to launch an epic superhero game, Capes.
The team is creating a tactical, turn-based game of superheroes battling to reclaim their city from the forces of evil. It will come to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox X/S. A demo will be available on Steam Next Fest this month.
Capes is a turn-based superhero strategy game where players assemble a team of heroes while fighting to take back their city, now controlled by evil despots. Twenty years ago, the supervillains won. Since then, they’ve created a dystopian city where developing superpowers is a crime and no one has dared oppose them.
Players experience a series of dark and gritty campaigns and patrol assignments, and either push the story forward or take time to explore with side missions that unlock more heroes. Completing challenges earns skill points to increase heroes’ powers and abilities while you learn more about their lives and backstories.
According to the game’s creators, it offers players the following features:
- Be Mighty: Play as heroic protectors of the innocent, each with unique skills and powers. Master your hero and unleash devastating ultimate abilities!
- Assemble Your Team: Select the right team for the right mission. Combat isn’t based on random numbers, so choose wisely to win the day!
- Level Up: Complete challenging missions and side-quests to improve your heroes with new abilities and powerful upgrades!
- Defeat Evil: Face down vile villains and criminal corporate henchmen. Do you have what it takes to free your city from the clutches of villainy?
