NEOWIZ and developer Team Suneat announced Blade Assault is to exit early access with the launch of version 1.0 on January 17, 2022. Packed with new content, the launch release features never before seen content during the early access development phase.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign and a regular patch update cycle since the early access release in June 2021, Blade Assault is ready to level up with the game’s full release. The action-packed side-scrolling roguelite platformer’s full version comes with three playable characters: Kil, Jenny, and Darcy. Each character features their own unique playstyle and signature weapons: blade, axe, and rifle. Over 200 different items such as cores and gears are available. Enhanced weapons allow characters to take on the monsters that fill the mutant-infested outside grounds.
Three new bosses, for a total of seven, plus the ending of the game are in the full version. Players will find there is now a Friendship System where taking time to make friends in the Undercity and throughout the world is beneficial as these NPCs will offer rewards. Anything that helps the cause as this is a two front battle between the mutants and the corrupt military of the sky city Esperanza.
Those who are successful in taking down the big bad bosses and beat the game can find more challenges in the Assault Level. This level will test one’s might and fortitude with endless hard mode waves of enemies that will make even the most seasoned players break a sweat.
More additions are planned beyond the launch of Blade Assault’s cyberpunk pixelized world’s release. Players and fans can get excited about new characters, bosses, and weapons that are planned for the future with more details to come.
Blade Assault is available now in early access on Windows PC through Humble Bundle and Steam for $17.99 USD. On January 17, 2022, Blade Assault officially launches with version 1.0 and featuring Kil, Jenny, and Darcy. Previously the publisher announced that Blade Assault will also launch on PlayStation and Nintendo Switch at a yet to be announced date.
