A new IP that was announced at Summer Game Fest today by developer Stray Bombay, called The Anacrusis, is giving fans a new cooperative shooter with hordes of things to kill. Take a look at the trailer below.

The Anacrusis is a four-player co-op shooter by former Valve developer Chet Faliszek. This is a Left 4 Dead-style adventure where you and a crew of friends must take on hordes of aliens on the titular abandoned starship.

Although we do know from previous announcements that this game will be episodic. The idea is to give players “a breadth of content that can demonstrate what the game can be, but the studio also expects people to play these areas repeatedly.”

The Anacrusis is being released on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Steam, Epic Game Store, and Game Pass.
