Ruiner is a brutal anime-inspired top-down cyberpunk action shooter.

Throw up your energy shield and refresh your dash augmentations because it’s going to get pretty wild from here on out

Powered by the Unreal Engine 4, Ruiner is a brutal action shooter set in the year 2091 in the cyber metropolis Rengkok. A wired psychopath lashes out against a corrupt system to retrieve his kidnapped brother under the guidance of a secretive hacker friend. Combine preternatural reflexes, augmented tools, and the arsenal of fallen foes to tear down and dismantle the corporate titans of virtuality dealers at HEAVEN. 

Reflexes will be put to the test as players take aim at HEAVEN, the monolithic corporation behind the entertainment networks bringing people real sensations in virtual worlds. The masked hero will utilize a fantastic array of weaponry and gadgets in concert with fluid movement and tactical strikes to save his kin and discover the hidden truths of Rengkok. A sensational score from Khoven, DJ Alina, and famed anime composer Susumu Hirasawa (Paprika, Millennium Actress) back a unique original narrative.

The Annihilation update hits PC on February 21, as well as PS4 and Xbox One, which will also include the free Savage Update.

The Annihilation update is packed with new content, such as face waves of enemies in Arena: Colosseum mod, 4 new finishers. 2 new outfits, plus various tweaks and fixes.

Ruiner’s Savage Update includes several heart-pounding new additions for seasoned killers and gameplay tweaks for a more approachable Ruiner for new citizens of Rengkok. The New Game+ mode ratchets up the intensity with a stroll through RUINER that will challenge even the best player, while the new Speedrun mode adds in online leaderboards while removing everything but the action – pure combat as fast as possible.

The new update also includes ten new weapons to bring into battle alongside the new Ruiner Kills that add in violent crescendos to complete your kills with stylish gore. New Ruiner outfits complete the fresh look, allowing players to change their player model as well. The celebrated soundtrack also receives two additional tracks by Sidewalks & Skeletons.

Key Features:

  • Sophisticated & Brutal Combat: RUINER features lightning fast combat that requires a delicate balance of overwhelming, brute force, and elegant strikes to overcome all manner of savage opponents. Blast through crowds or slow down time and hand select your points of attack before unleashing a storm of violence on the battlefield.
  • Cyberpunk Inspired Arsenal: Equip all manner of high-tech firearms and melee weapons to ruin all that oppose you. Employ state of the art gadgets like energy shield, dash augmentations, and the switch gun stun or hack the opposition onto your side of the fight.
  • Story-Driven Action: Violent confrontation is a means to an end and trust is a devalued currency in Rengkok as you navigate a senseless world with the help of a mysterious hacker friend.
  • Exceptional Soundtrack: Explore and battle to the intense beats of Khoven, DJ Alina, and famed anime composer Susumu Hirasawa (Paprika, Millennium Actress).

Ruiner is currently available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
