Edinburgh, Scotland – March 16th, 2023.
Firestoke and RageCure Games are pleased to unveil “Goons: Legends & Mayhem” and reveal that the game is skating its way to PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Switch in 2023.
Following in the footsteps of titles like Mario Strikers and Windjammers, Goons: Legends & Mayhem brings cartoon brawling action to the sport of hockey, delivering fun multiplayer matches where outrageous special abilities are key to your goal of getting the puck into the net.
Supporting 1-6 players, Goons: Legends & Mayhem is a 3 vs 3 hockey action game with a variety of PvE and PvP modes, including a full story campaign. Players can choose from one of eight characters divided into 3 classes – the attack focused sharpshooter, the defense oriented enforcer and the wingman, a wildcard that can either focus on supporting their team, or act as a constant pain in the neck of the opponents.
Each character has their own special ability, including explosive mines, freezing opponents in a cube of ice and teleportation, adding an element of cartoony brawling to this hockey title where teamwork is the key to success.
Goons: Legends & Mayhem story campaign takes players on a varied journey across ice rinks nestled in forests, to floating ice rinks sailing the sea on pirate ships as they try to stop the Great Mascoteer’s mission to ruin hockey for everyone. On this adventure, players will encounter bosses to defeat, collectibles, character upgrades, and cool cosmetic unlockables.
Alongside the fun hockey gameplay, class-based characters and chaotic brawling abilities, even more depth is added by six environments for you to play with, each of which has its own special mechanics, environmental hazards and a goaltender to defeat.
“Making a game that blends arcade hockey and beat ‘em up action, brings couch co-op nostalgia, compelling online play AND a great single-player campaign, has been far from easy, but that’s what we’re delivering,” said Francis Tremblay, Game Director.
“We can’t wait for you and your friends to get on out onto the ice and try the game on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC this year”.
“It’s great to finally be able to announce Goons: Legends & Mayhem,” said Firestoke CEO Paul Farley.
“We knew immediately that this was an ice hockey game like no other with appeal that goes well beyond just hockey fans. It’s rare in gaming that a game not only brings a truly fresh approach to an established genre, but also does so in a way that appeals to both new and established players. Goons does this. It’s been a joy partnering with RageCure games on this title. They are not only huge hockey and gaming fans, but a fun team to work with!”
