'Steelrising' Gets Bastille Edition, Pre-Order Incentives Includes Beta Access

by Rainier on June 16, 2022 @ 12:39 a.m. PDT

Steelrising is an action RPG that places you in the heart of an alternate Paris during the French Revolution, where the automaton army of King Louis XVI is terrorizing and suppressing the French people.

In 1789, in an alternate Paris, with iconic locations and monuments adapted by Spiders' developers, the French Revolution has stalled. The people's revolt has been heavily suppressed by an army of automatons, deployed on the King's orders.  

1789 is the year of the Storming of the Bastille and the start of the monarchy's downfall. Steelrising depicts an alternative version of history: what if King Louis XVI, who loved clockmaking, had built an army of robots capable of quelling the insurrection? Powerful and cruel, this army spares no one and violently punishes rebels. Paris is burning and bleeding. Men, women and children are being systematically massacred.

In this terrifying chaos, you play as Aegis, an outstanding automaton and bodyguard of Marie-Antoinette. Appointed by the Queen, Aegis will have to navigate through a Paris crawling with machines. Each fight with these mechanical enemies is a challenge where the player's skills are subjected to a tremendous ordeal. Such is the price to pay for those who want to change the course of history.  

Aegis, the main character, will fight against this reign of terror to try and change the course of history.

Players who preorder digital editions of Steelrising will get a "Marie-Antoinette" alternative appearance pack for Aegis and exclusive access to the beta, which starts on 25 August 2022.

The Bastille Edition, which releases 8 September and is also available for preorder, includes the DLC Cagliostro's Secrets, which is scheduled for early November. This chilling quest will take you to a whole new area that harbours secrets hidden by the king. On this dark adventure, you will encounter new enemies and unlock new weapons and costumes. Your ultimate goal is to uncover the secret behind the alchemy that powers the automatons of Louis XVI.

Aegis, an automaton created as a dancer for the pleasure of the Court, is now a warrior and Marie-Antoinette's bodyguard. The Queen has tasked Aegis with cutting a path through Paris where the machines are sowing terror. Each fight with these mechanical enemies is a challenge where the player's skills are severely tested. Such is the price to pay for those who want to change the course of history.

Steelrising is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam) on September 8, 2022.
