Steelrising Greedfall studio's soulslike action RPG artwork and logo

In a bit of a divergence from the usual Souls-like setting, the freshly released Steelrising is a challenging action-RPG set in alternate history version of the French Revolution where Louis XVI has somehow managed to surround himself with an army of murderous automatons. Your role, as you might imagine given the genre, will be to slice, dodge and parry your way through the seemingly endless robotic hordes in an effort to put an end to the madness.

What all of this looks like in action, as well as what sort of atmosphere Steelrising is going for, that you can get a pretty good impression of through two of the recent trailers. Have a gander, starting with the freshly posted launch trailer:

I haven't played Steelrising myself so take the following with a few grains of salt, but so far it looks like it's a highly entertaining Souls-like that's suffering from some serious performance issues. So unless you're extremely eager to dive in, I'd recommend giving the developers a few more weeks to sort everything out. That way, once you finally begin your journey, it'll hopefully be smooth sailing all the way to the end.

Whatever your plans might be, you can learn more about Steelrising, as well as check out a bunch of player reviews, over at Steam. Have fun slicing and dicing robots!
