Cobalt Release Date on Xbox and PC Set for February
Cobalt may have featured under our list of “Undated Releases” but it looks like this has finally changed. In fact the release date is probably sooner than you thought it might be.
Mojang have announced that Cobalt will be releasing on Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on February 2. It will cost $19.99 or the equivalent based on where you live around the world.
In the announcement they take a detailed look at the game, which is being developed by Oxeye Game Studio, and published by Mojang. For people who purchase it on Steam, there was an interesting note for those looking to be inventive:
“As mentioned earlier, Cobalt is coming to Steam for Windows. And it’s going to have Steam Workshop support. That means enthusiastic players will get the chance to create their own levels and share them with others around the world. Pretty cool. Its also worth noting that anyone who’s already bought into the Cobalt alpha will get a Steam code for free via their Mojang account. We’ll talk more about that closer to release.”
What should interest fans of platform games is the fact that a “massive campaign” is mentioned, though this is said in a light-hearted way:
“OK – it’s not massive. But it is pretty big. The latest estimate is around eight hours. You’ll end up shooting a lot of stuff, but there’s a lot more to Agent Cobalt’s adventure than that. Over the past six years, the development team have laced in a ridiculous amount of features from dancing mini-games, to tameable pets, to conversation trees that can lead to fulfilling relationships with mushroom people. You also get to upgrade your suit and weapons to your liking as the adventure progresses. It’s great, OK?”
So along with the multiplayer side of things, it seems there will be plenty to do in the game. Will you be trying it out? Let us know your thoughts on the release in the comments section below.
