A sci-fi action platformer boasting hack-and-slash combat, Blackwind will be bringing mech-based action to PC and consoles early next year, developer Drakkar Dev and publisher Blowfish Studios have announced.
When the peaceful mining colony on planet Medusa-42 is invaded by the hostile alien Raknos, it falls to plucky teen James Hawkins to use his father's prototype battle mech to fend off the threat. While battling the Raknos in top-down isometric environments, you'll have puzzles to solve, obstacles and enemies to overcome, and a wide range of weapons and melee attacks at your disposal.
While fighting aliens and looking for Hawkins' estranged father, you'll be able to upgrade your Battle Frame via three skill trees, unlocking new abilities and skills. Blackwind includes three difficulty levels and a local co-op mode in which one player controls the Battle Frame and a second player unleashes attacks using the Battle Frame Drone.
Blackwind will be coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on 20th January 2022, priced $24.99/£19.99/€24.99. You can find out more in the trailer below.
