During the recent Nacon Connect, Spiders Studio’s action RPG Steelrising was confirmed to be releasing in June 2022. It will be available for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC via Steam. A new gameplay trailer was also revealed which provides a much better look at how the combat and action plays out. Check it out below.
The story takes place in an alternative history Paris where King Louis XVI has deployed an army of murderous machines. As Queen Marie-Antoinette’s robotic bodyguard Aegis, you’re sent to aid the Revolution and stop the king’s tyrannical reign. The trailer below sees Aegis using a variety of weapons, from a halberd to twin hand fans (that can also double up as a shield for blocking projectiles).
Unlike Spiders’ previous RPGs, Steelrising is taking more of an action approach, emphasizing verticality and multiple paths in each level. A closed playtest took place in March for PC but it’s likely that another one will happen in the coming months. Stay tuned in the meantime for more details.
