Curve Digital and Muse Games have announced that frantic, frenetic, firefighting multiplayer Embr launches on Early Access for Steam and Google Stadia.
Players will either play solo or work together in online teams tackling blaze after blaze to earn tips from clients, picking up the ever-so-crucial 5-star rating in order to earn cash, upgrade tools, and hopefully becoming the ultimate ‘have-a-go hero’ firefighter.
This is no like-for-like simulator, however. Embr is an intentionally satirical, tongue-in-cheek look at the rise of venture capitalism, with its license for allowing players to solve problems creatively resulting in toss-the-resident-out-of-the-window-onto-a-trampoline style solutions that just wouldn’t fly with a real fire fighting force.
Embr offers players a variety of missions to earn money and upgrade their firefighting tools and lease better vehicles and fire trucks, all while dealing with competition from the Canadian firefighting startup Host. Staying competitive, however, relies on players working together, planning firefighting and rescuing in dense environments with complex systems interactions; water, fire, gas, electricity, and structure integrity all have a role to play.
Embr also offers cross-platform multiplayer, with Steam players able to play with their Stadia counterparts and vice-versa.
Curve Digital is also proud to announce that Embr will be brought to life by CORSAIR iCUE software on PC. Watch your room light up as you fight fires, scale buildings, and rescue people from danger! When certain events are triggered in-game, the dynamic RGB lighting on CORSAIR iCUE-compatible components and peripherals will change to compliment the action in play.
Embr launches on Steam Early Access on today for $19.99/€19.99/£17.99 with a 20% discount in launch week.
Players can expect multiple free major content drops in the months after launch significantly expanding the game. Muse Games will also continue to diligently work with the community to further shape the Embr experience based on feedback and suggestions.
