The new game is an action-RPG set during the French revolution for next-generation PCs and consoles.Greedfall Spiders Studio is working hard on its next game, Steelrising, which was shown yesterday during the live broadcast of Nacon .
In an interview with Nacon Direct, Jeanne Rousseau, co-founder and President of Spiders, discussed the inspiration and backstory of Steelrising . The world of Steelrising is based in the real world of revolutionary France, with some monuments that no longer exist appearing in the game, such as the Grand Chatelet and Tour du Temple.
In Steelrising, you are in an alternate reality of France during the French revolution. The army of automatons of king Louis XVI suppresses and terrorizes the French people. You will take on the role of Aegis, a “robot in female form” who serves as the bodyguard of Queen Marie Antoinette, instructs you to put an end to the mass murder carried out by the automatic army of king Louis XVI.
If you get small flashes of Nier: Automata, you are not alone.
In addition, the passage of the game world will not be as direct as other action-RPGs, since you will also work with the vertical nature of France. You will wander through the streets of Paris, climb to the balconies and the building or find a secret passage that leads to another area.
No release date was given, but it looks like it will only be released on PCs and upcoming next-generation consoles
