on January 20, 2017 8:45 AM

Today, developer Pixel Titans and publisher Devolver Digital announced that its old-school FPS, STRAFE, is launching on PC on March 28, 2017. As you may know, the game is also slated to come to the PS4 (we previewed this version), however, Devolver Digital did not announce a release date for this version.

For those that don’t know: STRAFE is a roguelike first-person shooter merged with a hardcore sci-fi action game. For many people, it reminds them of DOOM. 

You play a Scrapper who is on a impossibly dangerous mission at the edge of the galaxy. You only have one life to navigate various nightmarish terrains, and when you die, “nothing will ever be the same again.”

Here’s some of the 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! ÜBER-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 also 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. On PC, the game also will have Oculus Rift compatibility.

A price point still hasn’t been divulged. But a new trailer has: you can check it out below:
