CastleStorm is coming to PS3 and PS Vita next month!

Welcome to the world of CastleStorm, a super genre mashup of 2D physics destruction mixed with tower defense brawler! The idea for CastleStorm came from fond childhood memories of building LEGO castles and then (of course) destroying them. If you want to know more about the inspiration behind the game and meet the team who created it, watch the developer diary here:

We know many of you have been waiting for CastleStorm to arrive on PlayStation, so today we are happy to announce the game is coming on 6th November for €9.99, with Cross Buy support. Pick up the game on PS3 and get it on PS Vita at no charge! For those of you who have not heard about the game, here is the scoop…

It’s Knights vs. Vikings in CastleStorm, where medieval warfare meets 2D physics-based destruction! Controlling the battle in real time, players will harness the power of medieval artillery, manage a fearsome ground attack, and cast powerful spells! CastleStorm features a story-driven solo campaign, a custom castle editor, online multiplayer, co-op modes, and more. Building castles and knocking them down has never been so much fun!

For those of you who like to build and create, CastleStorm features a tower construction editor so you can construct your own custom castles that will be used in battle (including online multiplayer). Castles must be constructed wisely, as choices determine which types of troops and resources will be available during battle! Check out this video for a bit more info on proper castle building etiquette.

  • 1 vs. 1 split-screen mode: Simply try and beat your opponent by bashing in their castle. Choose your side—the noble Knights or the ragtag Vikings—and then choose your arsenal of weapons wisely. Face off castle to castle and the first to completely demolish his or her opponent’s castle wins! This mode is only available on PS3.
  • Survival Co-op: Two players team up to fight off waves of enemies together! Assign one player to control the ballista and the other to control ground forces. Good timing and great aim are essential in Survival Co-op as friendly fire could be harmful to your own troops on the ground.
  • Last Stand Co-op mode: Would you rather ditch the castle and do some hand-to-hand combat out in the battlefield? Check out the Last Stand Co-op mode where both players control a hero and battle wave after wave of enemies together! The object is to stay alive as long as you can, but remember, enemies can come from either side so be ready. Please note that we recommend using Wi-Fi on PS Vita when playing online multiplayer for the best experience.

Original Soundtrack by Waterflame (credits include Castle Crashers)! We invite everyone to listen to the soundtrack for free on YouTube

Multiple paths to victory means you get to choose how to defeat your enemy! Capture the flag, destroy their castle, or complete another predetermined level objective in order to claim victory. Each level features multiple objectives, each with their own rewards.

CastleStorm features an arsenal that would make any medieval warrior proud! Harness the power of medieval ballista weaponry, and launch an assortment of explosive weapons including Morningstars, Apple Grenades, Homing Eagles, and even flying sheep (yes, really!) to defeat an onslaught of enemies trying to capture your flag and destroy your castle. Deploy a fearsome ground attack of swordsmen, knights, and donkey riders in order to protect your castle games, and if all else fails, call upon powerful spells to help keep the enemy at bay. See you on the battlefield on 6th November!

I join in with the “FINALLY!” comment, cause, damn, finally!
Really looking forward to this and, please, also release this on PS4 as soon as you can, don’t want it to “get lost” in the upcoming PS4 action, sure, still leaves Vita, but yeah, it would be great to have it on PS4 as well.

Thanks for this, looking forward to it, and hoping the best for a PS4 version as well.

Greetings,
RealZero

Not my usual thing at all YET it actually looks pretty appealing with lovely graphics (nice colour schemes particularly on the forest in day and night) and since it’s Zen Studios I’m expecting it to be a quality product. And Crossbuy is always good.

Hm, Last Stand mode sounds like my kinda thing actually. :D
