San Sebastian de los Reyes, Spain – September 11, 2019 – Independent development studio MercurySteam announced today that their Free to Play cooperative shooter Spacelords includes now full cross-play between PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC and Steam. 

Spacelords becomes one of the very first games to include full cross-play, unifying all Spacelords players around the world regardless of the game system of their choice. This measure will also ensure a more optimal matchmaking system and shorter queuing times between games for the growing Spacelords’ community.

“Implementing full cross-play is a really complex endeavor for any developer,” commented Enric Álvarez, Game Director. “For a small independent team like MercurySteam, the effort we put behind enabling this feature speaks volumes of our commitment to offer our fantastic community as many options to play Spacelords with total freedom as possible.”

Spacelords is as a Free to Play gaming experience for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam and Windows 10, including full cross-play between all platforms. For more information, visit Spacelords’ website: www.spacelordsthegame.com.  

About Spacelords

An incredible discovery on one of Saturn’s moons leads a force of humans to the Broken Planet on the far reaches of the Universe. A source of energy called Aleph exists there that grants ultimate power to whoever controls it…

However, the human forces split into factions and fight amongst themselves for dominion over the Aleph. The peaceful inhabitants of the planet are caught in the crossfire, but a hero emerges amongst them who hopes to lead his people to freedom…

Using nefarious means and exploiting the disunity amongst the human ranks, Harec recruits a rag tag group of rogues, outlaws and hired guns from the various factions and pits them against those who would destroy his people...

Spacelords is a brand-new take on the shooter genre. Through its Free to Play, 4 vs 1 counter-operative campaign, you experience both sides of the story: Join the Raiders in their fight to free the legendary Broken Planet or become The Antagonist: Switch sides and fight the Raiders on your own alongside the invading hordes!
