PRESS RELEASE

TOKYO – March 27, 2019 – gumi Inc. and Yomuneco today announced that its upcoming title, SWORDS of GARGANTUA, is calling out for more adventurers to test their skills against the mighty Gargantua. From Thursday, March 28, until Sunday, April 7, (Pacific Daylight Time), the company will run a second closed beta test and invites global Steam users to apply.

For this beta, the company will be accepting a larger pool of testers, and all accepted testers who share their feedback through a provided survey, will be given the opportunity to have their name added to the credits as a Closed Beta Tester.

There are several new systems added to the second closed beta test:

  • New combo system that amplifies your damage after a successful block, dodge or parry.
  • More weapons to fight with – a Samurai sword and Club!
  • Instead of pre-set enemy waves, now players will fight enemies based on how well they perform. The stronger you are, the harder the enemy!

In order to apply for the beta, join the SWORDS of GARGANTUA Discord and follow the instructions on the #beta-apply channel here: https://discord.gg/d4UZR6B

Key Features in SWORDS of GARGANTUA:

  • Hyper Realistic VR Swordsmanship: We’ve taken great care to ensure that each battle feels great through heavy refinement of our battle system and accurate haptic feedback.
  • Cross-Platform 4 Player Co-Op: With native voice chat, develop strategies, revive downed friendlies, and battle hordes of enemies in order to protect your mana station.
  • Grand in Scale: 100 single player missions, 30 weapons to unlock, and a multiplayer mode rarely seen in VR melee action games.
  • Gargantuan in Size: Embrace destiny and take on the mighty titan Gargantua. Larger and more challenging than anything players have faced in Swords of Gargantua before!
