Defend alien towers instead of blowing them up in script-flipping final act Anomaly Defenders

11 bit studios has announced the final chapter in its Anomaly series will turn the established tower-offence gameplay the franchise is known for on its head, putting you in control of the aliens as they defend themselves against an invading human army.

Titled Anomaly Defenders, this third act (which was preceded by Anomaly Warzone Earth, Anomaly Korea, and Anomaly 2) appears to be a more traditional tower-defence game. 

You're charged with fighting off the advancing human forces by erecting towers, and then upgrading them to improve their firepower and efficiency. These towers will have "special powers" which you'll be able to trigger in times of extreme crisis.

In some ways, its odd to see the series embrace the very genre it flipped on its head. In a cluttered landscape of tower defence games, the Anomaly series stood out as an interesting twist on an oft-employed formula.

That said, we suspect it'll be a blast to dive back into that gorgeous world and see the war from another perspective.

We don't have a release date for Anomaly Defenders yet, but when we do, you'll be the first to know.
