Last year, it was announced that Spiders, known for role-playing games, The Technomancer and Greedfall, is working on a new title – Steelrising, an action game presenting an alternative story, in which French revolutionaries must fight not only against the royal soldiers but also against the robots accompanying them.
A new short video promoting this production has hit the network, showing what we can expect from the gameplay contained in it – we encourage you to watch.
As you can see from the teaser above, the creators were inspired by, among others, games from the From Software studio, known primarily from the Dark Souls series, but also Bloodborne and Sekiro – you can see, among other things, that the main character of Steelrising will use a similar gadget that was available the players of the latter title, i.e., a folding fan that allows you to defend yourself against attacks (although in the case of Sekiro it was a steel umbrella – it is important, however, that the function is the same).
The protagonist will be Aegis, an automaton serving Queen Marie Antoinette, who is in the center of events related to the French Revolution presented in the game. She will have various special abilities that distinguish her from ordinary people – as you can see from the teaser, in addition to the fan above, she will also be able to shock enemies with electricity.
Steelrising is expected to be available on PCs, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X in June 2022.
