Ruin Raiders and Godstrike, developed by Overpowered Team and published by Freedom Games, are coming to Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, PS5 , Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

Freedom Games is shouting it from the rooftops: Ruin Raiders, the anthropomorphic turn-based tactical roguelike from Overpowered Team is coming to Switch and PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store) on October 14, 2021. The same date will see the Overpowered Team living up to their name and releasing another game: Godstrike, the boss rush bullet-hell shooter, this time for PlayStation4 and Xbox One with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S|X backwards compatibility capabilities. 

Ruin Raiders

As advertised, Ruin Raiders will take you on an adventure through an ever-changing labyrinth that is said to hold untold riches. One-way tickets sold only.

Your squads will have access to an armoury of weapons, stat and skill-boosting upgrades, and items to fight against the strange automatons and creatures lurking underground.

Ruin Raiders encourages tactical turn-based battles where position can mean life and death. Animals will be your friends: Rhinos can boost their armour rating while Dogs can focus fire for a guaranteed hit.

You can always go back to camp, regroup, build new structures that supply upgrades, additional character slots, and more - all in an effort to give the text batch of explorers a better chance of reaching the ruin's final floor.


Coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 14, Godstrike will bring the same action already familiar to players on Switch and PC. Godstrike will have its players battle avatars of a forgotten deity in multi-staged boss fights.

The Herald, also known as the player character has as much health as there's time left in the boss fight so you'll have to plan your moves carefully and do your best to avoid damage. All is not so bleak though as the Herald has access to some powerful attacks and abilities like the True Shot, a homing attack that curves around arenas.

Godstrike offers an all-access Arcade Mode with every skill and ability unlocked. There's also the randomized Challenge Mode and Daily runs with pre-set modifiers.
