Originally launched for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 back in 2012, Awesomenauts currently boasts over 20 playable characters. The game was also released on PlayStation 4 in 2014 and now Xbox One gamers will be able to play in the form of Awesomenauts Assemble! with a lot of extra character DLC available.
Awesomenauts Assemble! is a MOBA fitted into the form of an accessible 3-on-3 action platformer. Head out to the online battlefields together with your friends as an online party or in local splitscreen, and never worry about having to wait for an online match because of drop-in matchmaking! The game brings together the most elite mercenaries from across the universe to do battle in 3-on-3 arenas! Devise strategies as you upgrade and customize each character’s skills to suit your playing style.

To celebrate the launch on Xbox One, players can download the Starstorm Expansion for free, and Ronimo Games has a few more things up their sleeves:
- To celebrate the launch of Awesomenauts Assemble! on Xbox One, the Starstorm Expansion will be available for free until September 12. Players will be able to ‘purchase’ this content at 100% off during this time. This includes the following characters: Ted McPain, Penny Fox, Sentry X-58, Skree, and Nibbs. The content is usually available at $6.49, or $1.49 for the characters individually. Bundles that include this content are discounted during the launch window.
- More content is launching later this year, and will include a free character called Ix the Interloper. More free content is planned, and we’ll keep the Xbox One version updated regularly alongside the PS4 version. Development for post-launch content and updates will be done in-house, while the port itself has mostly been handled by Abstraction Games.
- We’re hosting a raffle with prizes over $10000 in value up for grabs. Players can win a copy of the game along with all the available DLC by signing up for the Awesomenauts Assemble! Xbox One newsletter over at Awesomenauts.com/Xbox-One-News
