Xibalba Studios has been relatively quiet for the better part of a year as they continue to work on their 2.5D Platform-Shooter MilitAnt. As E3 rolled around, the team has delivered a new trailer which showcases the game’s classic 2.5D shooter gameplay coupled with elements of platforming and boss battles.

The Ants have their backs against the wall as the other insect empires have teamed up to “exterminate” this sect of six-legged crawlers. Scorpions, Wasps, Termites, and Beetles are the ones leading the charge against the Ants in a battle of resources.

To the rescue comes a soldier who takes it upon himself to defend his specie from extinction. Equipped with enough fire-power to take down the fiercest insects, this fire ant will do what it takes to protect his kinds legacy while learning more about why these other empires are on the attack.

Developed by Xibalba Studios, MilitAnt will release on PS4, PS3, PS Vita, and PC/Steam in Q1 of 2015.  With E3 over, more info about MilitAnt should be released shortly.
