Black Paradox blasts out of Early Access – here’s what’s in V2.0



As of today, Black Paradox is no longer in Early Access and the full, final version has now launched!

During the 279 days the game has spent in EA, the fantastic team at Fantastico Studio has worked incredibly hard improving and polishing Black Paradox, adding 16 new power-ups, 13 new enemy waves, 11 new music tracks, 6 new power-up combos, two new weapons, and one new boss. On behalf of the Fantastico team, we’d like to thank everyone who has played the game so far.

And we hope you’ll be excited to hear about a couple of new, significant features that have been added to the full version: Chip Storage and Darkness Mode.

Chip Storage: Instead of only being able to carry the chips you have equipped to the Star Phoenix, this new storage option allows you to keep up to nine unused chips as well.



Darkness Mode: Beat the game to unlock this new boss-rush mode. It takes place in the alternate ‘dark’ dimension and you get to play as the ‘dark’ Black Paradox, rather than the ‘light’ version of the hero that features in the main game. You face alternate, more powerful clones of each of the bosses, all of which use a modified and deadlier version of their attacks.

Those aren’t the only additions/changes/tweaks to the game, here’s a full rundown of the updates you’ll find in the full version:

  • Level presentation map
  • Level unique backgrounds
  • Chip storage system
  • Chip restock system
  • Darkness mode (unlocked by clearing the game)
  • 2 new power-up combos
  • New enemy drop (in addition to health pick-ups, enemies also now drop a blue tank that charges your ultimate move by 20% when collected)
  • Visual upgrade on bullets
  • Visual upgrade on enemies
  • Full text language support added for Simplified Chinese, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Italian
  • Bug fixing
  • Typo fixes
  • New achievements
  • Balancing
  • UI upgrade
  • Improved performances

And here’s a final tally of some of Black Paradox’s key features:

  • 20 weapons, 37 powerups, 13 deadly drones, 8 amazing power-up combos, and the ultimate space-bending move: the "Black Paradox"
  • 62 different enemies, each with its own attack patterns
  • 14 deadly bosses with unique attacks + 1 secret boss

As well as the full version launching on Steam, Black Paradox is also now available on PS4 and is coming out tomorrow, Friday 3 May, on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Tell your console-owning buddies or grab the game on Switch and discover the portable pleasures of playing Black Paradox in handheld mode.



Thanks for reading and we hope you have an absolute blast with Black Paradox.
