Spiders' newest game, Steelrising, received a new trailer on Dec. 9 at the Video Game Awards, and a release date of Sept 8, 2022, was given by the studio. The developers, Spiders, have revealed a lot about this game already.
Steelrising looks to follow Spiders' previous game, Greedfall, and inject some fantasy and sci-fi into a historical period. Players will control Aegis, an automaton masterpiece who must take on King Louis XVI and his mechanical army who have suppressed the revolution.
Paris is the setting for Steelrising, and it has been plunged into darkness. Players must use Aegis' energy, tools, and abilities to navigate the streets, rooftops, and castles of the former City of Light. Mechanical creatures roam the city, and it is up to the player to stop them once and for all.
Mechanical soldiers aren't the only threat. Steelrising's human population is filled with enemies and potential allies. Question everyone's motives as you attempt to carry the Revolution to success.
