As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'Severed Steel' Shows Off Bullet Ballet Gameplay, New PC Demo Available Now - Trailer

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 new Steam demo for Severed Steel as part of the Future Games Show event page on Steam. The demo features 5x campaign levels, 5x arcade levels, a variety of weapons to try out, and a selection of game-modifying mutators to sample.

Featured as part of the Future Games Show, the Severed Steel "Bullet Ballet" trailer offers another teasing look at the stylish shooting action players can expect to enjoy when the game launches later this year for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

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.
