Devolver Digital isn’t just about 8-bit violence, they are also graduating to some higher resoultion mayhem very shortly. Today they’ve announced the release date of an upcoming cyberpunk twinstick shooter called Ruiner, and it’s right around the corner. What is Ruiner? Funny you should ask…
RUINER is a brutal action shooter set in the year 2091 in the cyber metropolis Rengkok. A wired psychopath lashes out against a corrupt system to retrieve his kidnapped brother under the guidance of a secretive hacker friend. Combine preternatural reflexes, augmented tools, and the arsenal of fallen foes to tear down and dismantle the corporate titans of virtuality dealers at HEAVEN.
Reflexes will be put to the test as players take aim at HEAVEN, the monolithic corporation behind the entertainment networks bringing people real sensations in virtual worlds. The masked hero will utilize a fantastic array of weaponry and gadgets in concert with fluid movement and tactical strikes to save his kin and discover the hidden truths of Rengkok.
When I said “just around the corner”, I specifically meant September 26th, when Ruiner will release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam.
