It has been a long road for Embr since its initial Early Access debut nearly 18 months ago. We are now less than a month away from the full release. The lovely team at Curve Digital and Muse Games have announced some more information on their upcoming title
Embr will launch on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch on Thursday 23rd September 2021. A Little over a year after the game first entered Early Access on Steam and Google Stadia. Embr will also see a physical release on PlayStation and Switch the following day.
As anyone who has taken on that Early Access version will know, Embr is a marvellously manic multiplayer where you and your friends come together to have a go at fighting ferocious fires and rescuing residents – if you count chucking them out of an open window onto the ground below as a bona fide rescue, that is.
Players either take on the game solo or work together in online teams tackling fire after fire to pick up tips from clients, earning the ever-so-crucial 5-star rating in order to collect cash, upgrade tools, and hopefully become the ultimate ‘have-a-go hero’ firefighter.
Embr certainly looks like it will be a lot of fun and craziness as you are not just limited to the role of a firefighter.
If one job wasn’t enough, players can also deliver takeout food on the fly with ‘Embr Eats’. Drop off explosive parcels as a ‘Box Box’ delivery expert, all before becoming a DIY safety engineer as a Gaslight Inc employee. It’s the full amateur adventurer experience!
On top of all the Embr’s standard gameplay, the full release will include:
- 2 brand new expansive districts to explore housing 12 new hand-crafted levels.
- 13 new tools and upgrades to customise your firefighting experience. 5 brand new game modes to earn extra money your way.
- Daily and weekly missions for extensive replayability.
- Cross-platform play across PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Stadia. – Extra difficulty settings and level mutators to keep things rolling. – Tons of additional wearables, vehicle cosmetics, UI overhaul, achievements, and more.
Embr is designed for PS4 and Xbox One, but will run perfectly on PS5 and Series X|S. The game will launch on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch on Thursday 23rd September 2021 for £17.99/€19.99/$19.99. Embr will also see a physical release on PlayStation and Switch the following day.
