Game News Morbid Metal: when Devil May Cry meets roguelite, a cutting-edge trailer
Devil May Cry is an action gaming benchmark, and with good reason. So here is Morbid Metal, a game that is very freely inspired by it, but which nevertheless mixes with the very popular genre of roguelite: a new trailer was released during the Summer Game Fest 2022.
Vergil, are you there?
Developed by a developer named Felix Schade, Morbid Metal pointed the tip of his nose during the Future Games Show, broadcast as part of the Summer Game Fest 2022: it is a very nervous beat them all and very, very largely inspired by Devil May Cry.
Specifically, the game draws its gameplay from that of Vergil, Dante’s brother, both from the reboot DmC Devil May Cry and main games of the franchise. It’s honestly not a bad reference and the action looks punchy, sharp and quite nervous.
A sharp rogue-lite
If we will not face demons or monsters, the player will be confronted with equally formidable robots: we can choose four characters, interchangeable in real time, each with their own characteristics.
Above all, it is a rogue-lite, and therefore a title where the player will start from the beginning by losing a majority of his equipment with each game over. The levels are also created semi-procedurally in various biomes, with ruins in support.
Metal Morbid is expected on PC via Steambut no date has yet been announced.
About the Summer Game Fest
What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcements of video games to come this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now unmissable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured stunning images from Elden Ring; so inevitably, the third iteration raises high expectations.
When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?
The Summer Game Fest is this Thursday, June 9 at 8 p.m. The show will once again be followed by a Day of the Devs session devoted to the independent scene.
