Sup dawgs. We’re psyched to say that Strafe is coming to PS4! For those of you who don’t know what Strafe is, here’s some info to prepare you for the cultural revolution. But first check out this gameplay trailer.
Let’s continue on if you’re eyes haven’t burst from the red-hot action.
Strafe is a roguelike first-person shooter that’s pushing the limits of computer-generated photorealism and hardcore sci-fi action into unimaginable territory.
You’re a Scrapper on an impossibly dangerous mission at the edge of the galaxy. You only have one life to navigate all the nightmarish terrains of Strafe. When you die, nothing will ever be the same again.
The game is fast and dynamic with more than 30 weapons and 20 bloodthirsty enemies, but I wanted to cover the persistent gore in this blog post. Gore is special in Strafe and we are working hard to make our gore systems second to none.
We spent a lot of time working on the blood and gore in Strafe because we feel that it’s important for the player to leave their mark on a level. After a firefight it’s awesome to see the mess you’ve made and it’s rewarding to know that every splash of blood represents a challenge you’ve overcome.
The gore is also great for telegraphing where you’ve been. Since the blood and gibs never fade away you have a breadcrumb trail of carnage that helps you prevent backtracking.
Lastly, the persistent gore opened up new gameplay possibilities with acid-based enemies. These enemies bleed acid that will burn the player if they stand in it. So avoid it at all costs or cover it up with the blood of another enemy to make a safe path!
Strafe is coming early next year!
