CALABASAS, Calif. — Nov. 18, 2021 — 505 Games and Duoyi Network today announce a partnership to publish Gunfire Reborn on consoles worldwide in 2022. Gunfire Reborn, the hyper-stylized, roguelite-inspired co-op first-person shooter developed by Duoyi Network, exits Steam Early Access today, launching on PCs, after hitting 2 million worldwide sales.
After launching in May of 2020 on Steam, Gunfire Reborn has earned high praise from players (94% positive reviews on Steam) and was called “irresistible” in a glowing review from Famitsu.
Both companies will introduce console audiences to Gunfire Reborn’s booming blend of ability-based hero shooter and roguelite, all rendered in a striking cel-shaded aesthetic. Play solo or cooperatively with up to three other players in a highly replayable romp through gorgeous environments. Mix and match 40+ weapons, 100+ scrolls, powerful inscriptions and Ascensions to craft builds from devastating Sharpshooters to magic-based Alchemists.
Gunfire Reborn’s upcoming worldwide console release will implement broad language support, enabling players across the globe to enjoy the game together through four-player co-op. In announcing this distribution partnership, 505 Games and Duoyi Network are continuing a business relationship that began in 2017 with a similar distribution agreement for Portal Knights.
“We are thrilled that 505 Games is embarking once again on an exciting project with Duoyi Network. Gunfire Reborn is a game we have followed since its incubation in Guangzhou and we are delighted to see it cross the 2 million units sales mark on PC.,” said Raffaele Galante, co-CEO of 505 Games with his brother Rami. “This new collaboration further deepens 505 Games’ presence in China, and confirms the emergence of China as a major development hub for innovative pay-to-play video game experiences and 505 Games as a bridge for outstanding Chinese developers going global.”
Gunfire Reborn will launch worldwide on consoles in 2022, with additional updates for PC and console to launch in the future.
