Gatling Gears Shoots Its Way onto Xbox LIVE Arcade

The high-intensity, twin-stick shooter Gatling Gears launches today on Xbox LIVE. In this classic top-down shooter -- from the team that brought you Greed Corp. -- you play as Max Brawley, a retired Gatling Gear pilot out to stop the Empire from ravaging the planet’s natural resources.

What is a Gatling Gear, you ask? It’s a sweet mech walker that you can customize with cool upgrades you earn by salvaging gears from defeated enemies. And there will be plenty of enemies to defeat -- your epic mission takes you through 30 unique areas in full online or offline co-op mode. Or you can test your skills in Survival mode as you go head-to-head with enemy forces in 10 rounds of arena-style combat chaos, complete with tanks, homing missiles, flame-throwers, cluster bombs, and of course a hailstorm of bullets.

Published by EA Partners and created by Amsterdam-based Vanguard Games, Gatling Gears is available now on Xbox LIVE for 1200 Microsoft Points. To learn more about the game, follow the Vanguard team on Twitter, or “like” them on Facebook.
