ANVIL - Everything you need to know

If you’re looking for a new multiplayer fix, then look no further than ANVIL. The game is perfect for you and your friends to breeze through some missions together and have hours of fun. Still not convinced? I’m here to tell you everything that you need to know about ANVIL, so sit back, get your guns ready, and keep on reading.

So ANVIL is a multiplayer co-op shooter that’s also a roguelike twin-stick shooter. You hunt for over one hundred random artifacts and weapons as you control a top-down unit to take out your enemies with your friends.

Think the Borderlands series if it was a top-down roguelike and you’re kind of on the right track here. Of course, as with any comparison it’s not perfect, but it’s pretty damn similar.

In ANVIL you traverse across multiple different galaxies as a Vault Breaker, killing a whole host of monsters. As this is a roguelike, along the way you’ll discover wildly varied environments and weapons to use to make your life a whole lot easier. 

When your Breaker dies, they’re rebuilt in ANVIL, so you don’t need to worry about losing your character forever here.

So ANVIL is the Ancient Vault Investigation Lab. They search across the galaxy for vaults that contain ancient alien civilizations. It’s your job as a Vault Breaker, a member of ANVIL, to travel to random planets, take down boss monsters and bring back your findings so that ANVIL can make both themselves and you stronger.

Their success is all down to your success, so do everything you can to help yourself out. You’re able to combine artifacts and weapons to make new synergies and rain utter chaos upon your opponent, so make sure you experiment as much as possible to see what you can find.

Sounds fun. When does ANVIL release?

ANVIL releases December 2nd on console and Steam PC in an early access state. The developers expect the game to remain in early access for roughly a year, and they’ve made a commitment to updating the game at least three times through the upcoming year, so you’re not likely to run out of content to play anytime in the future.
