Today Berserk and the Band of the Hawk has been released. A release trailer was also brought out today. Here’s the press release for the game.


“Burlingame, Calif. – February 21, 2017 – KOEI TECMO America is proud to announce today the release of Berserk and the Band of the Hawk, developer Omega Force’s most brutal Warriors style title to date now available for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, digitally on the PlayStation®Vita handheld system, and on Windows PC via Steam®. Based on the world-renowned manga and anime series Berserk by Kentarou Miura, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk closely follows the events of the most well-known story arcs from the iconic manga’s narrative, focusing on the violent and heroic adventure of Guts, Casca, the Band of the Hawk, and Guts’ Traveling Party throughout their perilous conquest against a sinister realm of demonic fiends. A brand-new trailer was released today to celebrate the action title’s eagerly-anticipated arrival.

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk blends the signature ‘one versus thousands’ style action from the long-running Warriors franchise with the grim and gruesome atmosphere of Berserk. Fans of either series and newcomers alike will enjoy a gripping, action-packed adventure as they harness the powers of iconic characters such as Guts and Griffith to slash and smash through hordes of enemies.

Players familiar with the Warriors series of hack and slash titles will be able to feel the difference in gameplay through the way each character handles combat. For example, Guts’ massive Dragonslayer Great Sword allows for devastating attacks, and players will subsequently feel the weight of the weapon throughout battle. Alongside a vast array of weapons and sub-weapons, playable characters also possess devastating abilities that must be “awakened” to draw out their true potential. Players can take advantage of Guts’ Berserker Armor to unleash deadly blows, Griffith’s demonic Femto form to deal swift bursts of damage, and Zodd’s giant Apostle form to effortlessly topple foes. The game also incorporates various battle mechanics to better bring the world of Berserk to life, such as Magic and Transformations.

An endless swarm of enemies awaits those brave enough to take on the game’s Endless Eclipse Mode, where players can prove their worth as they go toe to toe with countless enemies in the formidable Eclipse dimension. Offering a unique and challenging respite from the main story, the new mode has players fighting for their life as they rush to complete various missions to overcome the deadly Eclipse. Those who manage to withstand the challenge will find themselves better equipped to tackle the main game mode.”

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk is now available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Steam.

Plays too much, but still has too many games to finish. Will play any type of game and will watch anything, so is of course not good at being productive. Loves anything crazy.

    This was a really nice trailer. Just a couple of more days before I cut off Griffith’s head and pretend that it’s canon.

  • Heck, the trailer was really cool!
    I wanted you to talk more about the after the golden age.
