Today, developer Pixel Titans and publisher Devolver Digital announced that its old-school FPS, STRAFE, is set to launch for PS4, Mac, and PC on May 9, 2017. As you may remember, earlier this year the pair announced the game would hit PC on March 28th, however, this was quickly walked back.
For those that don’t know: STRAFE is a roguelike first-person shooter that has virtually no load times and infinite replay-ability thanks to randomly-generated levels that change every time you die. In the game, you play as a Scrapper, who’s said to be on an impossibly dangerous mission at the edge of the galaxy.
Here’s a rundown of the game’s core features:
Face Melting Speed! The blazing fast action will hit you like the blast wave of a 50 megaton thermonuclear warhead, liquefying your skin cells and rupturing your internal organs. Yet still leave you coming back for more.
Permanent Damage and Gibs! Uber-Gore technology means enemies explode with near never-ending fountains of blood, which never fades away. Create wicked works of death art that mark your explored territory from the unventured.
Endless Changing Levels! Randomly-generated levels are always different and violently unpredictable. Rooms, enemies, power ups, monster closets, and secrets move around every time you die and die and die and die!
STRAFE boasts four unique zones, with four levels each, all which demand a different death-defying gameplay style. There are over 30 “insane” weapons, with countless gun upgrade options, and 20 plus different enemies.
Over on the PlayStation Blog, Thom Glunt

The project has been years of pixilated blood, real sweat, and delicious tears, and we’re beside ourselves with excitement to finally bring it to the PlayStation community.
Our hope is that you enjoy the craftsmanship and love that went into making Strafe. Get ready for the white knuckle action, attention to detail, and intricate secrets that’ll make you come back for more, run after run.
