Check Out the ‘Anomaly 2’ Trailer, Coming This Fall

The Anomaly series of games are really awesome. We loved the original so much that it was our 2011 Game of the Year Runner Up. The pseudo-sequel was great too, and really the only “complaint" we had, which is really only a negative if you didn’t also love the first game was that it was just more of the same great gameplay. Anomaly 2 launched on Steam in mid-May, leaving iOS gamers wondering if and when we’d see the game on touch devices.

Well, 11 bit Studios is now ready to talk business, both in releasing the above trailer for the mobile version and teasing a nebulous “Fall 2013" release date. The PC version saw great reviews, with many mentioning the awesome new multiplayer mode where you can actually play as the towers and fight off a friend’s assault. Of course all the singleplayer stuff is in there as well, complete with multiple endings depending on the choices you make throughout the game. Your actual units are cooler this time around too, with the ability to transform into unique mechs for situations that require a little more oomph than their standard form.

We’re super-stoked for Anomaly 2, and you should be too. If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out Anomaly Warzone Earth ($1.99) and Anomaly Korea ($3.99). Play ’em with headphones too, if you can, as the sound design is out of this world.
