Bloodroots Release Pushed to 2020, Now Coming to Epic Games Store
The Bloodroots release window has been pushed to sometime in early 2020, and will now be available in the Epic Games Store.
During the Epic Games Store’s Game Awards announcement, Paper Cult’s fast-paced action game Bloodroots will now be coming to Epic’s digital storefront. However, its release window has now been pushed from Summer 2019 (obviously) to “early 2020.”
Despite the delay, you can pre-order Bloodroots via the Epic Games Store right now. Depending on what region you reside in, the game will cost $19.99 USD / €15.99 / £15.99 with a 10% discount. As you probably gathered, the exact release date is unknown. With an early 2020 window, that puts its release between the months of January and April of 2020.
As mentioned above, Bloodroots is the latest release from indie developer Paper Cult. You play as Mr. Wolf, who was left for dead. Now, you are trying to find your killer, and there is absolutely nothing that can stand in your way. Similar to games like Hotline Miami and Ape Out, Bloodroots is an action game where you must use your environment and the weapons at your disposal to quickly eliminate all the enemies in the given area.
The last time we got our hands on Bloodroots was during PAX East where we said, “Paper Cult is crafting something special with Bloodroots. It’s clear from the moment you pick up the controller and start ripping and roaring through the land.” You can check out our full preview here.
I had also played Bloodroots myself during PAX East, and can tell you that this game is indeed special. Scratching that itch of chasing the high score, a few of our staff members kept going back to play Paper Cult’s combo-driven action game. It is definitely a game to look out for, even with the likes of games like Cyberpunk 2077, Doom Eternal, and The Last of Us Part 2 presumably releasing around the same time.
Along with the Epic Games Store, Bloodroots will be coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch at launch. There is a page for the game on Steam, but it isn’t quite clear if Epic has some sort of timed exclusivity deal or if it will also be coming to Valve’s digital storefront at launch.
