This information has been shared in a brand new game story trailer, which contains some gameplay footage towards the end. Here’s the recap, straight from the PR:
“The Dawn of the Monsters saga begins in 2036 when enormous creatures known as the Nephilim invade Earth, leaving calamities in their wake. To counter the threat, a global task force known as DAWN (Defense Alliance Worldwide Network) is created, but it is only three decades later that humanity can fight back properly. With four gargantuan guardians at his command – Megadon, the Living Volcano; Ganira, the Colossal Crustacean; Aegis Prime, a superhuman warrior; and Tempest Galahad, a hulking robot – DAWN prepares to reclaim the planet.”
On top of that, the game will feature two-player co-op and over 35 missions to go through.
