'Severed Steel' Closed PC Beta Next Week, Accepting Sign-ups

by Rainier on July 7, 2021 @ 3:34 p.m. PDT

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.

Publisher Digerati and developer Greylock Studios will be running a a closed PC beta between 14-21 July, so if you're interested in participating and providing feedback to help refine the experience as it enters the final stages of development, be sure to click here to sign-up now via Discord.

Players accepted for the beta will receive a Steam key via email on 14 July.

The beta will include the following content:

  • 10 campaign levels
  • 10 arcade mode levels
  • New game modifying 'mutators' (including 'floor is lava' and 'dive into wall run')
  • New enemies (including jetpacks and flamethrowers)

The beta also features changes made based on player feedback gathered during the recent Steam Next Fest (including tweaks to movement speed, HUD, and weapon balancing), so a huge thank you to everyone who downloaded and played the demo! We were absolutely blown away by the support!

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 PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam) in Q3 2021.
