BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. announced that they, along with Harebrained Schemes, the creators of the Shadowrun Returns series and recently announced BATTLETECH PC games, have partnered with iam8bit to birth a beautiful Collector’s Edition for the diabolical dungeon delve, NECROPOLIS. The NECROPOLIS Collector’s Edition will be available on all platforms. NECROPOLIS will be published on Steam by Harebrained Schemes on July 12th. Bandai Namco Entertainment America, Inc., will be publishing the PS4 and Xbox versions of the games later this summer.
The NECROPOLIS Collector’s Edition is available today for preorder for $50 via the iam8bit store, and is a Vinyl Soundtrack that includes a game code to the full game and many game-inspired items, including:
Full Digital Soundtrack*
Customizable Death Certificate
180-gram Transparent Blue Vinyl Soundtrack
Gatefold Vinyl Jacket that is an actually a playable Tabletop Game!
*Full Game and Digital Soundtrack Codes to be sent via email a day before the platform’s release date that you purchased*
NECROPOLIS combines third-person 3D action with Rogue-lite permadeath dungeon delving for a game that’s fast-paced and addictive, yet diabolically hardcore. Those elements are married with the game’s striking art style, sardonic tone, and 4-player drop-in/drop-out co-op mode.
You play as a nameless adventurer attempting to escape a living, magical dungeon that reconstructs itself each time you play, with only one way out – down. Craft, equip, explore, and fight to stay alive as you delve deeper and face ever-greater threats in the twisting halls and endless chasms of the NECROPOLIS. Have no doubt; you’re going to die – often! – but you’ll improve your combat skills, available upgrades, and dungeon know-how with every playthrough, bringing you one step closer to the exit.
“It’s clear from the cool vinyl record and badass album cover doubling as a Tabletop Game that iambit gets Harebrained Schemes,” said Mitch Gitelman, Harebrained Schemes Studio Head. “We’re excited to offer a NECROPOLIS Collector’s Edition for those discriminating players who want to take death to the next level.”
Additional Details about each of the NECROPOLIS Collector’s Editions feature:
NECROPOLIS Game Code – A digital download code for the full-version of NECROPOLIS on your choice of platform is included with every vinyl order (Steam, Playstation 4 or XBOX One). Codes will be distributed via email in advance of the game’s release date on their respective console.
Soundtrack – composed by Jon Everist (Shadowrun: Dragonfall, Shadowrun: Hong Kong, BattleTech) and pressed onto 180-Gram transparent blue vinyl. As with all iam8bit music releases, this collection is mastered specifically for optimal vinyl audio quality. The full soundtrack will also be available to each purchaser via digital download, with redemption codes sent via email.
Pen-and-Paper Dungeon Crawler – The album art doubles as a classic D&D-style game, including an instruction sheet and player piece. Players beware – it’s nearly impossible to navigate the maze without dying, but those who do will revel in the hard won bragging rights of success.
Album Art – designed by Steve Courtney, this unique cover pays homage to the punishing, maze-like architecture of the game. In addition to its engrossing artwork, the jacket features an embossed logo and a die-cut Brazen Head pupil that reveals a pop of fluorescent color beneath (on the sleeve).
Death Certificate – In keeping with the tone of permadeath punishment in NECROPOLIS, a fancy, fully customizable Death Certificate is included.
