[Alpha signup] Developer Ninja Theory today announced its latest game, Bleeding Edge, set to launch on both PC and Xbox devices. Bleeding Edge is a 4 vs 4 team fighter that combines 3rd person action combat with online team multiplayer, and it enters Technical Alpha on June 27. Each fighter in Bleeding Edge is unique, but roughly fits into an Assassin, Support or Heavy archetype. There’s a healthy mix of ranged and melee combat styles, and each character has an expressive kit of moves for players to explore, learn, and master.
The gameplay is all about combos, dodging, timing and dexterity, but ultimately, teamwork, synergy and strategy is needed to get the win! In addition to a diverse roster of fighters, Bleeding Edge features environmental hazards that are unique in every map. Players can yank opponents into an electric fence, charge them into the path of an oncoming train, or trap them in a raging fire pit! These hazards add extra spice to the objective-based game modes, and can be exploited to win big fights and make totally unexpected comebacks.
Players are also able to create unique loadouts for each fighter via cybernetic mods. All mods are earnable through gameplay and allow players to tweak builds to suit their playstyle, counter enemies, or capitalize on the team’s composition. There’s also a bunch of hoverboards to unlock, each fully customizable with paintjobs, stickers and trails. Ninja Theory has mentioned Bleeding Edge is its passion project, so sign up for Alpha test now!
