Aegis Wing Launching on XLA This Week

May 14, 2007

Aegis Wing, a game largely created by three interns at Xbox Live Arcade will be released this Wednesday for free. Aegis Wing was originally conceived by three interns over the course of a summer and is a side scrolling sci-fi action shooter. It combines space combat with fantastic visuals and a rich soundtrack.

The setting is 2105, and humanity is headed for Europa after abandoning the Earth. The Araxia, a powerful alien race, have other plans. The Aegis Wing, an experimental star fighter, is born from stolen Araxian Technology and is humanity’s last hope for survival.

Aegis Wing supports up to 4 players locally or over Xbox Live. It was originally created by three students – Scott Brodie, Danny Dyer and Matt Monson – during their summer internship as they worked in tandem with Carbonated Games, the developer behind UNO.

Aegis Wing will be available on Wednesday May 16th at 2am PDT and will be free. It will only be available for a limited time so grab it early.
