The French developer has presented a second trailer of Steelrising, the last time we heard about the game was on July 7, 2020. So exactly one year later they remind us that the title is scheduled for 2022 and that it will be exclusive to the consoles of new generation and PC.
In today’s trailer we can see more gameplay, at the time it was described as a cross between NieR Automata and Assassin’s Creed, but now it looks a bit more like Bloodborne and the Souls saga in general. It is also worth noting that the trailer says that it is playability of the alpha, so that only the final stretch of development remains.
Game almost ready
Each study defines the “alpha” of a game in its own way, but usually indicates that the title can be completed from start to finish, although details are lacking to polish everything. Apparently, Steelrising is already at that stage and that is why it shows us our character fighting against other robots with melee weapons.
In this title we will control an Aegi, an automaton robot that is part of the bodyguard network of Queen Marie Antoinette of France. It is the queen herself who sends us on a mission to find our creator and fight with King Louis XVI’s network of armed robots. This is the context of the Spiders game that had already released Greedfall in 2019 with relative success.
So we’re looking forward to a new ARPG, just with a different story and setting. In fact, from the studio they comment that they have worked hard to create a new universe for this game. You can watch the trailer below, Steelrising is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X / S and PC in 2022.
