'Rising Hell' Confirms Console Platforms, Gets Release Date - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on March 24, 2021 @ 8:45 a.m. PDT

Rising Hell is a metal-infused platformer that is guaranteed to quench your adrenaline thirst as you are thrown into the depths of fiery hell and slay all kinds of demons that dwell in it.

Accompanied by badass heavy metal riffs, create chaos and climb your way out from the underworld, roguelite-style.

In the randomly generated and ever-changing landscape of hell, you will encounter different creatures, bosses, and living traps lurking around. Chaining combos, jumping maneuvers, and talent building will be your key to triumph over the merciless hell.

If you are up for a more thrilling experience, Rising Hell also features challenge mode. In the early access version, there will be two modes that you can play. Who’s up to get locked in a room full of blood-lusting monsters, or to fight all the deadly bosses with limited health? You gotta beat the hell out of them before they get you! Furthermore, not just challenge mode, more worlds, and characters will also be added following the full release of the game.

Unlock new characters and talents to aid your quest for chaos in an ever-shifting underworld populated by ungodly abominations, drawn in a gorgeously grotesque pixel art style and accompanied by a soundtrack of head-banging heavy metal riffs. But beware – it’s not just (un)living enemies you’re up against; the very landscape seeks to kill you, with deadly traps lining walls, floors and ceilings, threatening to bring about the demise of the unwise. As you progress, collect red orbs from slain foes and spend them on mighty buffs to grant your character even greater power. With the threat of permadeath lurking around every cruel corner, one thing’s for sure – you’re in for a hell of a time.

Key Features:

  • Fight upwards towards freedom, using the unique “Hellbreak” jump-attack mechanic to chain satisfying combos.
  • Partake in epic boss battles, slaying ancient demons such as Dagon, Beelzebub and more.
  • Choose between campaign and challenge modes to satisfy whatever piques your dark desires.
  • Unlock and play different cursed characters to explore a variety of different playstyles and strategies.
  • In true rogue-lite fashion, your buffs continue to level up after each time you meet your doom; every time you come back, you come back even stronger.
  • Uncover the story of hell, discovering the lore of Lucifer and the origin of the “Hellsbane” claw that blights you.

Currently available through Steam Early Access, Rising Hell is coming to PS4 (playable on PS5) on May 18th, PC (Steam) on May 19th, Nintendo Switch on May 20th and Xbox One & X|S on May 21, 2021 at £7.99 / €8.99 / $9.99 / ¥990.
