With a myriad of rogue-like games available Beacon is trying to put a new twist on this tried and tested formula.
Beacon is a top-down sci-fi shooter where you play as the recently deceased Freja, who has crash landed on a hostile alien world. Your mission is to collect the materials needed in order to construct a distress beacon.
What makes Beacon unique is that it handles permadeath differently than other rogue-like games. Players are able to clone themselves when they die and recreate themselves in better ways by collecting DNA from fallen enemies and merging it with your own. This means new stats and even mutations on your next run.
There is no release date for the game yet but it will launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
