Buka Entertainment and Ravenscourt will be releasing Redeemer: Enhanced Edition, the updated version of their top-down action brawler, on modern consoles soon.
You play as Vasily, who isn’t your typical brawler protagonist. At one point he was an operative for a cybernetic weapons manufacturer, but after he discovered what that company was actually doing — conducting involuntary experiments on people to build cyborg super-soldiers — he understandably resigned.
The game takes place 20 years later, where Vasily is now a monk in a monastery. He looks like Kratos with a long beard, or Karnov if any of you remember the NES. It’s at this time that the company finds his location and sends some of their cyborgs to eliminate the loose end. That’s what they think…Vasily hasn’t been spending the past two decades doing nothing; he now knows martial arts so deadly that robotic enhancements aren’t necessary.
Intense top-down action: Take out enemies using a wide selection of fire arms and melee weapons including combat knives, batons, fire axes, hammers and many more.
Unique kill system: Use three different types of kills to mercilessly eliminate enemies: sneak to stealth kills; use the environment to dispatch your opponents; utilize your combat prowess to beat down your opponents
Brutal hand-to-hand combat: Take out enemies using a wide selection of fire arms and melee weapons including combat knives, batons, fire axes, hammers and many more.
Disarm-or-dismember system: Use a unique combat move to either disarm enemies of their firearms, or dismember certain enemies at will and use their limbs as melee weapons.
Parry System: Defend yourself whilst taking down your enemies by utilizing a well-timed block. Learn the movements and attack patterns of different enemy types to perfect your parry.
Story driven single-player: Discover Vasily‘s haunted past and experience a narrative journey of betrayal and redemption.
In this new Enhanced Edition, you also get the following NEW features:
Co-op mode: Play with your friend in co-op mode on one console: Friendship is tempered in battle.
Leveling up: In-game leveling is based on a gradual battle skills improvement – character’s proficiency with a skill is increased through practice of different attacks: kicks, punches, light and heavy melee weapons or guns such as handgun, shotgun, sub-machine gun, assault rifle or plasma gun.
Perks system: You have 50 perks to improve the killing efficiency of Vasily. Expand his abilities after every victory. Use new incredible fighting perks – electro punches, dragon breath kicks, explosive plasma and flame bullets etc
Redeemer: Enhanced Edition will be out July 12 for Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and XBox One.
