Mojang’s announced its first third-party title Cobalt, developed by Oxeye Game Studios today.

The game’s described as being “an action game of running, jumping, rolling, shooting, throwing, dancing, hacking, rolling, flying, sliding, climbing, looting, deflecting, racing, piñata-ing, passing, scoring… and even more rolling.”

You play Agent Cobalt in the game and have learnt that it’s hard to be a metal face, after stumbling upon the Space Exploration Foundation’s lost colonization ship The Seed at planet X9CSEC5.5B-blue, Trunkopia. It’s now upto you to discover its secrets and defeat whatever lurks inside it to save the day.

The game’s scheduled to release this fall on PC, and it’ll be followed by subsequent Mac and Linux versions. Watch the announcement trailer below.
