Wanted: Dead: Soleil and 110 Industries published a new video with four screenshots to provide a fresh look at the game’s stylish high-octane combat, complete with spectacular John Wick-esque style finishers and slick, limb-severing swordplay.
Wanted: Dead, along with a couple of other titles, were announced in October if our memory serves right (and we might have talked about them back then). Sergei Kolobashkin, 110 Industries’ founder and creative director, wrote the following about it in a press release: “We’ve been thrilled with the response from the press and public since we revealed Wanted: Dead last year. Everyone seems to have embraced the outlandish style and tone we aim for! We hope you all enjoy our Valentine’s Day gift, and I promise you there will be plenty more to come this year, so keep your eyes open!”
And the game’s overview received a slight update: “Developed by Japanese studio Soleil, Wanted: Dead blends melee sword combat, exciting gunplay and a unique limb severing system to deliver a deep action title inspired by the mechanically rich combat systems found in titles like Devil May Cry, Bayonetta, and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
Players take on the role of Lt. Hannah Stone, stepping into a dark and dangerous vision of cyberpunk Hong Kong as leader of the “Zombie Squad,” an elite team who work outside the purview of the traditional police force. You will fall in love with Stone’s elite combat skills that combine style and substance, delivering incredible slow-motion sequences, the ability to issue orders to teammates, and a limb severing mechanic that changes enemy attack patterns. Your date with Wanted: Dead this Valentine’s Day will take a stop at the Atomic Heart diner. Offering a change of pace to the game’s adrenaline-pumping combat, the diner offers a place for Lt. Stone to chill as she consumes food and drinks for buffs that will help her on her deadly missions while giving us players the chance to get to know the eccentric cast of characters that comprise her team.”
Wanted: Dead has no release date announced yet. It’s in development for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC.
