'Crossbow: Bloodnight' (ALL) Announced, Comes To PC Next Week - Screens & Trailer

Crossbow: Bloodnight is a frantic score-attack arena shooter set in a world of camp horror and gore.

Crossbow: Bloodnight is a frantic score-attack arena shooter that takes the brilliant Devil Daggers concept and puts it in a detailed gothic horror, Painkiller-esque setting. Fluid movement, versatile weapon, global leaderboards - a small, neat package of challenging fun wrapped up in bat giblets, warewolf fur, and twitching tentacles. Master the occult powers of your automatic crossbow and fight for every second of survival against a relentless demonic horde!

In the year 1139, the Second Council of the Lateran convened by Pope Innocent II has pronounced anathema on the use of crossbow. The council saw its unstoppable power as ungodly, demonic by nature. They were not entirely wrong.

The Coven of Crossbow, an ancient order of hunters sworn to guard the balance between the forces of heaven and hell prevailed against all odds. In the year 1666, as fire and plague ravage London, the Coven is facing its greatest challenge yet. The Ancient Horror from Beyond makes its way towards our reality. In its wake, legions of nightmare creatures spawn in the darkness. The Bloodnight is upon us, let the hunt begin!

Hunt. Die. Hunt again!

"We're all about fluid movement and fast-paced shooting" - says Przemyslaw Milinski, the studio co-founder. "Our Elderborn was a melee-only game, so we wanted to put an actual FPS out there. Crossbow: Bloodnight is our way of saying 'hi!' to the boomer shooter fans, and we're practically giving it away to make sure we get to as many of them as we can!"

Key Features:

  • Arcane Crossbow with various shooting modes, further empowered by siphoned spirits of your prey
  • Fluid, skill-rewarding movement mechanics with dashes, jumps, and bunny hops
  • Devastating special attack that takes time to recharge and is best used in strategic moments
  • Instant respawn button and fast respawn after death, so you can stay immersed in the game
  • Six enemy types in two variants, endlessly flooding the night-clad courtyard of the old, desecrated abbey that becomes the arena of your struggle
  • Global leaderboard system so you can compete against friends and strangers
  • Full controller support

Crossbow: Bloodnight is coming to PC (Steam) on September 24, 2020 at $2.99 (33% launch-week discount), with a Nintendo Switch later this year, followed by other consoles.
