Alien Invasion in Area 51! New Level and More Enemies for Defend Earth: Xenos Survivors


Karlsruhe, Germany, July 24, 2023 | The indie developer team Reija has released a new update for the action-packed top-down roguelike Defend Earth: Xenos Survivors. Now players can gain access to Area 51. The new level, named after the US military base in the Nevada desert, is overrun by aliens in Defend Earth: Xenos Survivors!

Welcome to Area 51!

Many myths of conspiracy surround the restricted military area in Nevada – Area 51 is often associated with aliens and UFOs. What are only myths in the real world become reality in the top-down roguelike! All players can now enter the Area 51 level and take on two new enemy types:

  • Void Hunters are elite units of the Xenos. They are ranged fighters and fire a laser towards the players with a short delay. They typically spawn in waves of enemies and are considered to be extremely dangerous.
  • Vol'Nar, the Deadeye also attacks from a distance. In her standard attack, she uses projectiles; in her special attack, she switches to a laser that even follows the player for a certain period of time. Vol'Nar, the Deadeye is the boss enemy in the new level and is not easy to defeat.

The indie top-down roguelike has been available via Steam for a month at a price of 8.79 euros.
