Stop Spiky-Haired “Heroes” from Unknowingly Destroying the World in Zenith
Launching on Steam and PS4 worldwide
MADRID — Sept. 7, 2016 — Badland Games and Infinigon present Zenith, a hilarious action RPG launching on PlayStation 4 and Steam as a digital download and on Playstation 4 and PC as a boxed edition.
Play as Argus, a thirtysomething wizard needed for one final job: protecting a powerful artifact from angsty heroes with too much free time, too many oversized swords, and a “chosen one” complex that would make Neo blush.
Argus has had his share of adventuring, exploring ruins, accidentally unleashing monsters with way too many teeth, and (repeatedly) saving the world. Argus has done it all — and he can’t wait to settle down into a safe, predictable routine. However, a new generation of heroes is itching for some action — and they want to save the world once again by gaining access to a ridiculously dangerous artifact. Argus’ vacation will have to wait.
Explore the vast world of Zenith to equip the six elements — Boots, Belt, Tunic, Bracers, Ring, and Pendant. Each element modifies Argus’s attributes to allow him to choose the best gear for each situation. Search for more than 100 items (including potions, equipment, gems, and even a pillow) to aid the grizzled wizard in his quest. Traverse highly-detailed dungeons, battle in real time, and solve puzzles to show these youngsters what a real hero can do.
“The writing in Zenith brings a modern sensibility to classic ARPG tropes — allowing the player to have fun and make fun of them at the same time,” said Marc Lopez, Co-founder of Infinigon. “Whether you grew up playing Final Fantasy or The Legend of Zelda, you’ll find something to love in the wacky world of Zenith.”
