Fans choose the next playable colossal combatant in this monstrous co-op beat-'em-up!
Valencia, Calif. and Toronto, Ontario — November 9, 2022 — The kaiju-crushing combat rages on in Dawn of the Monsters! Independent game studio WayForward and developer 13AM Games are excited to announce that even more content is coming to the critically acclaimed giant-monster beat-'em-up, Dawn of the Monsters, which launched in March 2022 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Among the new content is an all-new playable character, which fans will be able to vote on from a selection of three gargantuan gladiators. The poll to determine the winner can be found at https://survey.survicate.com/d4538f262838b66f/?_svbep=P3A9YW5vbnltb3Vz.
Three behemoth brawlers are ready to earn your vote: the ape-like Ziranoth, the stone warrior Daizosan, and the mecha combiner Meteor Temujin. Resembling a primate wearing a mantle of vegetation, Ziranoth is a guardian of nature with an animalistic fighting style; its "operator" is Li Mei, a girl who befriended the beast while stranded on an uninhabited island. Diazosan, meanwhile, is a living statue that specializes in Rage generation and can trample enemies with ground-shaking rampage attacks. Last but not least is Meteor Temujin, a combining, multi-melee-weapon-wielding ATOM piloted by college genius Grace Galvan and her friends. Though all three giants are prepared for combat, only one will join the fight!
Whichever new character is selected will join the existing roster of four playable titans — Megadon, the "living volcano"; Ganira, the colossal crustacean; Aegis Prime, the gigantic superhero; and Tempest Galahad, the atomic-powered mecha — who go into battle against the apocalyptic Nephilim hordes. The action unfolds across more than 35 missions packed with combos and special moves, destructible environments, deep character customization, unique manga-style visuals, a captivating story with full voice acting, and two-player cooperative gameplay.
In addition to the new playable character, Dawn of the Monsters will also be receiving other new content, including new modes, missions, and Japanese voiceovers, in the form of both free and paid DLC. This content is planned to launch in 2023, with further details being made available in the future. For the latest Dawn of the Monsters updates — including the winner of the new playable character poll once voting has concluded — please visit www.wayforward.com and www.13amgames.com, and follow @wayforward and @13amgames on social media.
Grace Galvan was a child genius with a penchant for reverse engineering all kinds of tech and building her own versions. With the help of three of her college classmates, Grace scavenged pieces from large construction equipment and prototype ATOMs that failed to defend Los Angeles a few years ago. She started building a wonder of her own: Meteor Temujin, four ATOMs that combine into a single giant warrior.
After four years, Meteor Temujin is finally ready, and Grace and her friends have decided to join forces with Team Sunrise to stop the Nephilim threat, and fight for their future! However, their most dangerous enemy might not be the uncanny monsters, but Syncor's legal team, who claim ownership over Galvan’s creation…
Legend has it that the massive statue of Daizosan has been in the slopes of this mountain in northern Honshu, Japan, long before the village that it watches over was built.
There are different versions of the tale of how the villagers found the stone flute that can be played to ask the colossal guardian to protect the hamlet from corrupt daimyos’ samurai, bandits, or other threats. Every eight years, the flute is passed from its current holder to a younger priestess in a beautiful traditional ceremony.
DAWN researchers have pointed out similarities between Daizosan and the architecture and inscriptions found in the Hatteras depths. This lead them to believe that the mysterious builders of those underwater ruins also constructed Daizosan in long-forgotten times.
Ziranoth was one of the first Nephilim to be captured by DAWN in the early days of Project Raven, 25 years ago. Due to Project Raven's initial failures, the violent Ziranoth was released in an uninhabited island somewhere in the Indian Ocean.
Only recently, with the revived Project Raven's success with Megadon and Ganira, has DAWN returned for Ziranoth. What they found astonished them: Ziranoth underwent some kind of transformation. Reports claim he has since become bigger and bulkier, has grown a mantle of vegetation of sorts, and was found alongside a mysterious girl stranded in the island.
