Earthfall Brings Left 4 Dead-Like Action to PS4, Xbox One, and PC Today

Seattle-based developer Holospark and publisher Gearbox have released a brand-new launch trailer for the former's game Earthfall, which is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC as of today.

The new trailer, which you can view above, showcases the game's four-player cooperative shooter action that challenges players to survive hordes of ruthless alien drones and their inscrutable masters.

The new action packed footage is notably a bit reminiscent of Left 4 Dead, which makes sense, after all, the game is clearly inspired by the 2008 hit from Turtle Rock Studios.

Earthfall is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Digitally, it runs at $29.99 USD, but if you plan on picking the game up at retail, you will need to fork over an extra $10.
