Slain Back from Hell

Slain: Back from Hell is said to be a brutal arcade-style combat with bloody, intense platformer gameplay that puts a strategic twist on the classic hack-and-slash games of the ‘80s and ‘90s. Check out the announcement trailer and let us know what you think.

After an initial rocky launch, Slain went through a complete overhaul to become Slain: Back from Hell which you can purchase on Steam now or on the PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 13. Check out the press release below for all the information


Bloody Metal Combat Platformer Slain: Back from Hell to Launch on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One This Fall


Austin, Texas – August 17, 2016 – Pray to the gods of metal and prep for battle against Flesh Hounds, werewolves and other monstrosities with the upcoming console launch of Slain: Back from Hell, from the collaboration of independent game publisher Digerati Distribution & Marketing and indie game developers Andrew Gilmour & 22nd Century Toys. Releasing September 13 on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, October 5 on Xbox One and PlayStation®Vita this fall, Slain is available for $12.99 and features brutal arcade style combat with bloody, intense platformer gameplay that puts a strategic twist on the classic hack-and-slash games of the ‘80s and ‘90s.

Set in a dark, archaic world, Slain has players take control of a grizzled warrior as they seek to liberate the kingdom from deadly overlords. Using elemental weapons, lethal mana attacks and cunning skill, players will battle and exploit the weaknesses of enemies to either save the doomed land or face being slain themselves. A brooding heavy metal soundtrack from former Celtic Frost member Curt Victor Bryant adds to the ferocity and gothic aura of the game, serving to heighten the intensity throughout the myriad battles.

“Since launching on PC Slain has undergone a complete overhaul that has made the game a strong mixture of gory combat, platforming and strategy,” said Nick Alfieri, Director at Digerati. “These changes have earned high praise from the community and soon enough console gamers will get to experience the ultimate metal game.”
