French game studio Spiders has the ability to create incredible settings. Not everything is perfect with the gameplay of Spiders, but the worlds they show… Of Orcs and Men, Mars: War Logs, The Technomancer, GreedFall… The game Steelrising, which Spiders plans to release this year, also has an unusual setting. It’s a robot dictatorship during the French Revolution.
The main character of Steelrising is an automaton Aegis, which will fight in the streets of Paris with the mechanical army of King Louis XVI. Aegis’s behavior and clothing are a bit like Assassin’s Creed Unity, a game that was very unlucky with the release. In terms of gameplay, Spiders’ new project is an action/RPG with some soulsike elements.
Steelrising will be released on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series S/X on September 8, 2022. For now, we offer to watch the story trailer of the game.
