Severed Steel – PC release date confirmed with new trailer
PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch join PS4 and Xbox One on list of console versions launching later this year
Digerati is happy to confirm Severed Steel, the stylish first-person shooter from developer Greylock Studio, will launch 17th September on Steam, Epic Games Store, and other PC storefronts.The publisher can also reveal PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch are now confirmed platforms, joining the previously announced PS4 and Xbox One versions. Console versions of Severed Steel will launch later this year.
Inspired by games such as Black, Mirror’s Edge, F.E.A.R., and Half-Life mod ‘The Specialists’, Severed Steel casts players in the role of one-armed protagonist Steel as she battles against the forces of nefarious mega-corporation, EdenSys. The game features bullet-time and a fluid stunt system that allows Steel to wall run, dive, slide, and flip around the destructible environments.
Contrary to most shooters, weapons cannot be reloaded in Severed Steel – a consequence of Steel’s residual limb. Instead, when a gun is out of ammo, Steel must find a replacement weapon, which often means stealing one straight from the hands of an enemy.
Players can try Severed Steel ahead of launch thanks to a Steam demo, which was recently updated with an additional campaign level, tweaked movement mechanics, and various changes based on player feedback following a closed beta.
