About the Game
Vengeance is Mine is a third-person melee mech combat title with a unique time-manipulation mechanic that adds a fascinating twist to encounters. Thanks to the capabilities of the HYDRA mech suit, the player will have the ability to speed up time and blink towards unsuspecting enemies, or rewind time to readjust combos or evade death. HYDRA also comes packing an energy-based projectile weapon that allows you to take on foes at distance.
In Vengeance is Mine, players will step into the shoes of Gabriel Jaeger, brutally executed by his brother in order to obtain an old piece of technology that will allow him to operate the Deacon—a derelict military installation buried under the streets of New Amsterdam. Charles Jaeger, now in full control of the Deacon, rallies his flock to meet their spiritual leader Robert Wright beyond the horizon of space and time. His only problem is Gabriel. Somehow making it out alive, Gabriel is in control of the prototype HYDRA mech suit and ready to wreak his revenge.
