GungHo Online Entertainment America is launching a crossover today for its real-time strategy RPG Volta-X with Playtonic Games’ Yooka-Laylee. It introduces the playable crewmate, Yooka (with sidekick Laylee on his back) and a new story mission. The collaboration goes live today as part of a free update with other content as well.
Here’s the full rundown:
You can now experience new, character-specific skills and abilities once the loveable duo join your team – no Play Coins required! Players will also receive two new weapons and the Emblem System as a part of a free content update.
These two have already protected the world from corporate takeover, but now this dynamic duo is ready to kick tail in the World Volta Association (WVA). Yooka even put on pants for this one! Join Yooka, Laylee, and the Volta Crew in a new page-turning story mission. Help Yooka and Laylee learn all about Volta battling so the team can finally stop the infestation of the overly powerful bees-ness people.
Yooka is obtainable as a playable character after players complete a side mission in Episode 2. With his own personalised skills and unique special ability, Yooka is a force to be reckoned with in-battle. His main ability, “Slurp State,” allows Yooka to take on the properties of any elemental effect active in the room and imbue his next attack with that effect.
In addition to the collaboration, players will also receive a free content update with two new weapons and a new Emblem System:
The Capital Ship takes up all four drone slots and summons a huge drone that works independently to attack different rooms in the opponent’s robot.
The Dai Beam Cannon Weapon body weapon fires fast and doesn’t have a cooldown. However, use it with caution, as it can explode if it is used too much – or if someone uses fire or electricity to attack that room.
The new Emblem System grants players special emblems for completing certain in-game achievements. Players can equip these emblems next to their names to show off to other players.
GungHo still has additional plans for Volta-X. In the near future, an offline game mode and a new Volta will come to the game with Act 2.
