'Steelrising' To Get New Game Plus Difficulty Mode, Weapons And More Next Week

by Rainier on Sept. 21, 2022 @ 10:46 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.

Spiders and NACON are pleased to announce that the New Game Plus mode will be available for Steelrising on September 29.

This mode offers players a new additional difficulty level, and includes new content:

  • 4 new weapons
  • 1 new full outfit
  • New enemy variations

The Assist mode allows you to change the game's difficulty settings, giving players the ability to choose their own gameplay experience. This mode is available to everyone at any time during the game and can be activated and deactivated at will.

Steelrising is available for PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam).
