The companies also released a new combat-focused video showcasing how sisters Briar and Lute work in unison, using an array of destructive weapons’ and otherworldly powers to overcome their enemies and save the city of Ilden.
The physical Deluxe Edition of Soulstice will include an extensive digital art book, digital soundtrack, and the downloadable content “Ashen Blade Item Pack,” which is filled with consumables and currency to equip Briar and Lute.
Here is a brief overview of the game, via Modus Games:
From Italian developer Reply Game Studios, Soulstice invites players to uncover the dark truth of the Chimera, a hybrid warrior born of two souls. Voiced by Stefanie Joosten (Metal Gear Solid V), Briar and Lute are sisters who have been reborn as Chimera, and they are the only ones who can oppose the Wraiths, vile and ravenous beings that have come pouring into this world from the other side of the Veil. Only by mastering the abilities of both characters will players be able to unlock their full potential as Chimera and put an end to the invasion before it’s too late.
The striking, fantasy-inspired world of Soulstice will transport players to places filled with danger and beauty. Thanks to a diverse, combo-based combat system supported by a multitude of weapons and customization options, Briar and Lute will have a near-endless array of stylish and creative ways to dispatch their enemies as they explore a city in ruin. However, as the duo fight to reach the Tear in the Sky above Ilden, their challenges will become greater and their surroundings more hostile and twisted.
