'Severed Steel' (ALL) Playable PC Demo Available For A Limited Time

Severed Steel is a single-player FPS featuring a fluid stunt system, no weapon reloads, destructible voxel environments, and a one-armed protagonist named Steel.

After losing an arm in an accident, Steel is abandoned – like many before her – by nefarious mega-corporation, EdenSys. In the name of all those crushed under the boot of her former paymaster, Steel sets her sights on revenge.

Inspired by games such as Black, Mirror's Edge, F.E.A.R., and Half-Life mod 'The Specialists', Severed Steel focuses on nimble, acrobatic combat and features a fluid stunt system. Steel can wall run, dive, slide, and flip around the destructible environments that comprise EdenSys' Arctic superstructure.

Steel's residual limb means she can't reload weapons. When a gun is out of ammo, she must find a replacement, which often means stealing a weapon straight from the hands of an enemy. During the campaign, Steel is fitted with a permanent secondary weapon – an arm cannon capable of blowing holes in pretty much anything that gets in its way.

It's you, your trigger finger, and a steel-toed boot against a superstructure full of bad guys. Chain together wall runs, dives, flips, and slides to take every last enemy down.


You can now download and play a free Steam demo for Severed Steel as part of the Digital Dragons 'Indie Celebration' showcase.

The demo includes six arcade mode levels and the following four unlockable 'Mutators' (aka gameplay modifiers): Paintball, Double Jump, Big Heads, and Exploding Enemies. There are also a few weapons to sample, including the Ayakashi instagib rifle, and masonry melting Arm Cannon.

The demo is only available for a limited time, so be sure to try it before it disappears!

For some playing pointers, there's a video at the top of the Severed Steel Steam page showing the game's developer, Matt Larrabee, sliding, diving, and homiciding his way through the demo. It's a masterclass in stunt-killing.

Key Features

  • A unique fighter: Play as Steel, a nimble, one-armed sharpshooter on a mission. There is no reloading – pick your shots well and be ready to pry a loaded weapon from your enemies' cold dead hands
  • Stylish combat: Dodge bullets, leap off walls, slide kick, throw weapons – do whatever it takes to come out on top in intense and frenzied firefights
  • Fully destructible environment: Pepper through plaster with sharp 4.7 mm rounds, punch through thick concrete with .50 cal slugs, or make big holes in things with your arm cannon
  • Dynamic AI: No two battles are the same thanks to dynamic, unscripted, squad-based AI

Severed Steel is coming to PC (Steam), PS4 and Xbox One in Q3 2021.
