Stylish top-down brawler Redeemer gets August 1 release date

Redeemer, the top-down, sort of God of War-inspired brawler from Sobaka studio, will be released on August 1 on PC.

The studio announced the release date in a new trailer. Redeemer was revealed earlier this year, and the new footage continues to have the same brutal look.

Redeemer includes a single-player, story-driven campaign where you play as Vasily, a former mercenary who turns on the "shadowy forces" he once worked for. There's also Arena, which throws an endless number of enemies at you horde-mode style.

The game's combat features lots of stylised melee moves that look devastating. You can use items from the environment as a weapon, or combo regular moves into environmental attacks.

Redeemer even has firearms, which is a bit weird for a brawler, but it doesn't look out of place here. It'll set you back $15/£11. PS4, and Xbox One versions are in development but they don't yet have release dates.
