My favorite part of perusing the Gaming Nexus news chest is discovering a new game that speaks to me. Today that game is a co-op base defense action RPG called Wardens Rising, the debut title from developer Big Moxi Games. It features both solo and cooperative play for up to four players and sees you defending energy cores from hordes of enemies and bosses, blending hero shooter and base defense mechanics.

Wardens Rising will include a campaign mode with 24 cores to defend and four bosses to take down, in addition to a mission mode with waves of escalating challenge. As you level up your Warden, you’ll unlock new gear and abilities to customize your playstyle and tactics.

There is no firm launch date yet, but it is planned for a 2024 release on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.
