Get ready for First Class Trouble on the Epic Games Store! Independent developer Invisible Walls ApS and game publisher Versus Evil are excited to announce that Epic Game Store customers can board the ISS Alithea from today and work with fellow players to defeat the murderous robot AI that has taken over the luxury space liner.
First Class Trouble is a multiplayer social deduction game where six players must work together to shut down C.A.I.N., the rogue A.I. on board the luxury space cruise-liner that is trying to kill them. Two of the six players are chosen at random to secretly play as Personoids, killer humanoids sent by C.A.I.N. to infiltrate and ultimately betray the other players, known as Residents. The Epic Games release allows players to use Cross compatibility, which activates online multiplayer with Steam and Playstation versions.
Collaboration is key in First Class Trouble, which utilizes built-in proximity-based voice chat to elevate the social dynamics of actual conversations. As friends walk away from the group to scheme and plot where no one can hear them, they must also be careful of being attacked out of earshot, as no one will hear them cry for help. Residents must use teamwork to accomplish different co-operative tasks to navigate the different maps while the Personoids lie, disrupt, and deceive their way through the ship to kill off the Residents. Players can die in a variety of ways, including being dumped out of airlocks, drowned in spa pools, electrocuted, pushed into a burning fire or freezing to death in the giant walk-in freezers.
“We’ve been super pleased with the reception that First Class Trouble has received on other platforms and are excited to usher in a new crop of players through the Epic Game Store,” said Steve Escalante, General Manager of Versus Evil. “New players will have access to all of our DLC packs on day one, as well, so not only can you work with friends to take down C.A.I.N. (or other players), you can look great doing it!”
First Class Trouble has a vast array of cosmetic options from a variety of DLC packs available on the Epic Games Store, including the First Class Trouble Working Heroes Pack, The Keep Warm Pack, The Wedding Pack, The Winter Pack, The Runway Pack, New Years Eve Pack and more recent addition, the Sci-Fi Noir Pack DLC. These DLC packs give players a huge selection of outfits including uniforms, evening gowns, hats, tuxedos, swimwear and various other fun seasonal accessories to customize their player characters with.
Partly funded by the Danish Film Institute as well as a recipient of an Epic Games MegaGrant, developer Invisible Walls is utilizing the Unreal Engine to bring the world of First Class Trouble to life. The game emphasizes how development teams, publishers and government contribution can combine to deliver new player experiences under one creative vision.
Both the main game and DLC’s will have a 50% off launch discount available for 1 week.
