The Anacrusis Announced

Xbox Wire has the official announcement of The Anacrusis, a four-player, co-op first-person shooter from developer Stray Bombay coming to Windows, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Xbox Game Pass this (northern) fall. Here's an Announce Trailer with a first look at gameplay. As the description outlines, this includes elements specifically geared towards enhancing the game's replayability:
Every time you play The Anacrusis, the game changes. The AI Driver controls every aspect of the game, it spawns every enemy, directs each boss, and places all the weapons, gadgets, and health kits in the game. The goal is to deliver the perfect difficulty for your party’s preference, but it goes much further than that. The Driver knows how much of the story each player has experienced, so the secrets of the alien attack, and the relationships between the characters, and even more story beats unfold as you play. You’ve never experienced a co-op FPS quite like this before.

But wait, there’s more! Each time you play The Anacrusis, you’ll find new perks. The perks will change the way you play from game-to-game. You can stack all your upgrades to become your team’s offensive expert, spread your perks around and play for general utility, or specialize in healing to keep your friends alive. You’ll unlock more perks the more you play, and you’ll automatically share them with everyone on your team!
