Steel your nerves for this news
Severed Steel is a stylized first-person shooter that’s currently available on PC, but is set for a Switch release in July. Now we know that the ESRB has assigned the game an “M for Mature” rating ahead of that release.
The ESRB’s web site also lists Merge Games as a publisher. As pointed out by Gematsu on Twitter, Merge Games is well known for the releases of physical games, which means there’s a good chance that Severed Steel will be receiving one as well. See below for more info on the game itself.
Severed Steel is a single-player FPS featuring a fluid stunt system, destructible voxel environments, loads of bullet time, and a unique one-armed protagonist. It’s you, your trigger finger, and a steel-toed boot against a superstructure full of bad guys. Chain together wall runs, dives, flips, and slides to take every last enemy down.
A Unique Fighter: Play as Steel, a nimble, one-armed sharpshooter on a mission. There is no reloading – pick your shots well and be ready to pry a loaded weapon from your enemies’ cold dead hands.
Stylish Combat: Dodge bullets, leap off walls, slide kick, throw weapons – do whatever it takes to come out on top in intense and frenzied firefights.
Fully Destructible Environment: Pepper through plaster with sharp 4.7 mm rounds, punch through thick concrete with .50 cal slugs, or make big holes in things with your arm cannon.
Dynamic AI: No two battles are the same thanks to dynamic, unscripted, squad-based AI.
Firefight Mode: Chase high scores and fast times for leaderboard acclaim in this arcade-styled mode. Features 42 levels, each with their own sub-challenges, and over 20 unlockable, game modifying ‘Mutators’.
Campaign Mode: Blast through six compact story chapters as you battle against the forces of nefarious mega-corporation, EdenSys.
