Today marks the newest addition to the Sierra library of games with the release of Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions. This frenetic arcade shooter from developer Lucid Games is the latest installment in the Geometry Wars franchise. The new game advances the series to unexplored frontiers, bringing its retro-inspired action and energy to more platforms than ever before with an added twist to its classic gameplay – 3D grids!
“Geometry Wars is a part of our DNA,” said Craig Howard, Co-founder of Lucid Games. “Several of us here worked on prior games in the series, and we’ve had ideas kicking around in our heads for where it could go next. Partnering with Sierra to bring those visions to life has been an amazing experience.”
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is an exciting evolution of the fast-paced twin-stick shooter gameplay the Geometry Wars franchise helped define nearly a decade ago. While the game’s look should be immediately familiar to hardcore fans, it features new 3D action and gameplay modes, a dedicated single-player campaign with 50 levels and revamped online cooperative and competitive multiplayer. It also adds five unique companion drones, new power-ups, electrifying boss battles and community leaderboards. There are also Classic Arcade modes available for those still hungry for the original Geometry Wars experience.
Lucid Games’ partnership with the Sierra label has given the developer an opportunity to remain independent, but still be able to create the game they dreamed about. As part of Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc., Sierra’s focus is on working with indie studios to bring both classic and original high-quality new games to market.
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is a digital-only title available today for $14.99 in North America for the Playstation 4 and PlayStation 3 through the PlayStationNetwork, as well as PC via Steam. It arrives November 26 for XBOX One and Xbox 360 games.
