The hero that you are will therefore jump into the first ship available to twirl at all costs between torrents of pellets aimed only at your destruction. It will be possible to alternate between two styles of play, offensive and defensive, in order to survive. Pre-orders on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series are available now. Physical editions are also in preparation, it will be necessary to monitor the official site of CYGNI to be able to reserve them.
