Shadow Of The Beast release date confirmed alongside new trailer
This new trailer for Shadow Of The Beast comes with the news that the game will launch on 17 May for the PS4. The trailer delves into the character you control – Aarbron – a beast who unwillingly serves the evil mage Maletoth, but sets out to wreak vengeance after breaking his bonds. The brutal visceral combat is front and centre here, as Aarbron unlocks new attacks and takedowns as he defeats enemy after enemy.
Indulging in fast-paced gratifying combat with assorted enemy types forms the core of Heavy Spectrum’s game here, with items such as arcane talismans augmenting your skills and devouring souls of fallen allies garnering you the ability to summon their shadows while in battle. The developers also underline that Shadow Of The Beast will run at 60 frames-per-second, perfect for that split-second decision-making and quick reflexes in combat. The second half of the clip also shouts out to the original title – a 1989 Amiga classic – the upcoming game is based on.
