Developed by Spiders, Steelrising has had a five minute gameplay video released today (April 15) ahead of its September 8 release date.
This Soulslike adopts a semi-historical approach, as the player takes control of an automaton called Aegis during the French revolution. The last king of France Louis XVI is using a mechanical army to suppress the people, and its up to Aegis to change the course of history.
In the video, Aegis can be seen taking on the Bishop of the Cité boss, a steampunk-looking robot that moves around via a giant ball under its torso. Dodges, short and long range attacks, and jumping attacks are employed to take the boss down.
The YouTube video’s description reads: “Engage in ruthless and intense fights against technological marvels that are as complex as they are unforgiving. Your nerves and skills will be tested to their limits at every moment spent battling these relentless enemies and epic bosses.
“Delve into an enthralling alternate history filled with formidable mechanical enemies and potential allies with questionable motives. You are the only one you can count on to untangle the knots of history and ensure the Revolution succeeds!”
