Time goes by and after a first trailer and much positive feedback, Rimlight Studios is proud to announce the release of ZHEROS on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program.

ZHEROS is a 3D beat’em up, set on one goal: pure and fast action. Plenty of fights and an original style will take the player on a fascinating and twisted journey.
Keyword: destruction.  In the role of Mike and his partner Captain Dorian, your mission is to save the planet from the advance of a terrifying army, composed by robots and alien creatures.

A terrible threat has been unleashed in a faraway galaxy: the fury of Dr. Vendetta, who aims to be the chaos bearer and hides a secret, which the ZHEROS team will uncover with dangerous consequences.

ZHEROS can count on a great number of combos, thrilling fights in brilliant sci-fi locations and on the opportunity to use mechanical armour with powerful weapons. In solo or co-op mode: will you fight with the strong but goofy Mike or with the harsh and agile Dorian?
