Steelrising Gets New Uprising Trailer
Publisher NACON has released a trailer for Steelrising, an action-adventure RPG set in an alternate reality Paris during the French Revolution. The video shows that in this tangential Paris, the French Revolution has come to a stalemate and the people are being suppressed by an army of automatons on the King’s order.
Steelrising is set in an alternate 1789, during the beginning of the fall of the French Monarchy, and examines what might happen if King Louis XVI, someone who loved building mechanical clocks, built an army of robots to fight the revolution. As mechanical soldiers make quick work of Paris and are systematically slaughtering the citizenry, players take the role of Aegis, an automaton tasked with protecting Marie-Antoinette, and will have to navigate through a fiery Paris that is crawling with automatons. Each encounter with the mechanical enemies will put players’ skills to the test.
Steelrising is being developed by Spiders and published by NACON. It is set to release in 2022 for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam.
