Promotion Software and sixteen tons entertainment continue the well-known EMERGENCY game series // New real-time strategy game EMERGENCY focuses on cooperative gameplay // EMERGENCY to be released on PC this summer

Germany, Tübingen, May 22 2023 | The developer studio sixteen tons entertainment brings players another instalment of its internationally successful real-time strategy game series! With EMERGENCY, the German developer has announced the latest part of the long-lasting game series. EMERGENCY will be released this summer for PC via Steam.

In EMERGENCY, the development team delivers top-tier cooperative gameplay. The players take on the role of an incident commander and complete exciting missions with an adrenaline kick. As the city descends into chaos, the incident commanders give their best to extinguish fires, catch criminals, and care for the injured after massive accidents. In short, they save lives, whether in severe thunderstorms, bitter cold, or extreme heat. The rescue missions are designed for teams of four but can also be played in smaller groups or single-player.

"For 25 years, we have been setting high standards in game design and real-time strategy games featuring firefighters, police and technical units with our EMERGENCY series. With EMERGENCY for Steam, we are continuing our long-standing success story on PC in the summer of 2023 and look forward to presenting both experienced and new players with exciting rescue missions," says Ralph Stock, founder and CEO of sixteen tons entertainment.

Emergency - Fighters for Life, the first game in the series, was released 25 years ago and established a long-lasting series. Several spin-offs and other titles for the main series followed. The most recently published title, EMERGENCY HQ, was released on iOS and Android devices and is also available for Nintendo Switch. Starting this summer, EMERGENCY will return to the PC as a free-to-play game.

Key features of EMERGENCY:

  • Co-operative real-time strategy with an adrenaline kick
  • Exciting rescue missions for up to four players
  • Firefighting, manhunts, accident rescues, and more
  • Missions in a variety of weather conditions, such as storms, cold, and extreme heat
  • Versatile rescue vehicles: SWAT trucks, water tenders, ambulances
  • New content thanks to continuous development
