Plano, TX – December 2, 2013 – Robot Entertainment today announced the release of a free update to their iOS action RPG, Echo Prime.  Update 1.1 gives players more options for utilizing their Echo collection. It starts by adding four new Echoes with which players can make contact and gain abilities. Players can now help out a friend by selecting specific Echoes from their friends’ collections as they prepare to go into battle. Players will also now receive an extra bonus if their Echoes are borrowed while they’re actively playing the game.

The update also makes available new pieces of gear for players at higher levels in the game. Enforcers will now encounter new missions and compete in “Contests,” specially designed endless levels that can unlock unique gear based on how long a player can stay alive!  

As an elite Enforcer, players battle hordes of dangerous alien creatures, space pirates, and killer mercenaries with blaster and blade as they travel from star to star, uncovering the secrets of the multiverse. Players make contact with Echoes, mysterious beings from alternate universes who lend players their abilities and aid in their quest to save humanity from an alien menace.

ECHO PRIME FEATURES

  • Made for Touch – The real-time action gameplay in  Echo Prime has been specifically designed with touch devices in mind. Tap and swipe to fight and use special abilities.
  • Echoes of the Multiverse – Discover and unlock dozens of “Echoes,” alien life forms from alternate universes. As you build connections with them, Echoes will offer you powers and abilities to help you on your missions. Experiment and find the best combinations to customize your ability loadout.
  • Share Echoes –  Use your friends’ Echoes in combat to help them level-up, and level up your Echoes when your friends use them!
  • Upgrade Your Arsenal – Unlock over 100 pieces of gear with a diverse mix of deadly effects, from fire to toxic.
  • Random Campaign Generation –  Echo Prime features an action-driven story campaign with randomly generated missions. Every experience is different!
