French developer RyseUp Studios and publisher Starbreeze Entertainment today announce that Roboquest version 1.0 is now available via Steam, theEpic Games Store and GeForce Now for €24.99, with cross-platform functionality. During its three years of Early Access, Roboquest has maintained a score of 94% positive reviews on Steam and recently reached a score of 98% extremely positive reviews – just in time for release! Roboquest is celebrating its launch with a promotion, and a demo is available on Steam.
Roboquest is a fast-FPS with roguelite mechanics, playable solo or in two-player co-op. With an arsenal of hand-crafted weapons and original upgrades, players will need to find powerful synergies to remain a battle-ready guardian throughout their runs. Fearsome technologies will help them battle their way through canyons, energy plants and sci-fi towns. Character and play style can be customized as the run progresses, and the camp can be expanded to unlock permanent upgrades.

How will Roboquest evolve after its release?
The game will be continually updated. RyseUp Studios and Starbreeze Entertainment have plans, but no concrete roadmap to share at the moment… Stay tuned!
The first major update is scheduled for early 2024 and will focus on balancing based on player feedback and data. The team will continue to listen to and support players as it did during Early Access, and will address some EA requests that have not yet been addressed, such as the “Save during run” feature (unlikely to be added in the January update though!).
