Fill up those buckets. Unravel that hose. The next hot new co-op multiplayer is almost here. Curve Digital and Muse Games have announced that frenetic firefighting multiplayer Embr will launch on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch on the 23rd of September. Embr will also see a physical release on PlayStation and Switch the following day.
As anyone who has taken on that Early Access version will know, Embr is a marvellously manic multiplayer where you and your friends come together to have a go at fighting ferocious fires and rescuing residents – if you count chucking them out of an open window onto the ground below as a bona fide rescue, that is.
Players can take the game on solo or work as online teams. You will be tackling fire after fire to pick up tips from clients, earning the ever-so-crucial 5-star rating in order to collect cash, upgrade tools, and hopefully become the ultimate ‘have-a-go hero’ firefighter.
If one job wasn’t enough, players can also deliver takeout food on the fly with ‘Embr Eats’ and drop off explosive parcels as a ‘Box Box’ delivery expert, all before becoming a DIY safety engineer as a Gaslight Inc employee. It’s a strange addition to the game but a funny one nonetheless.
