Spiders and NACON have shared a new gameplay video for Steelrising, which will launch on PlayStation 5 on September 8. Come check it out!
1789 is the year of the storming of the Bastille and the start of the fall of the Monarchy. Steelrising shows us an alternative version of history, asking: what if King Louis XVI, passionate about watchmaking, had conceived an army of automatons capable of putting down this insurrection? Powerful and cruel this army spares no one and violently punishes rebels. Paris is on fire: men, women, and children are systematically massacred.
Aegis, once an automaton dedicated to dancing for the pleasure of the Court, is now a warrior, Marie Antoinette’s bodyguard. Appointed by the Queen, Aegis will have to navigate through a Paris crawling with machines. Each fight with these mechanical enemies is a challenge where the player’s skills are subjected to a tremendous ordeal. Such is the price to pay for those who want to change the course of history.

As Paris burns and bleeds during the Revolution, you are Aegis, an automaton masterpiece made by Vaucanson, an engineer in the service of the Clockwork King.
