Trailer: Blasphemous Bringing Blood, Gore, and Platforming to All Major Consoles This September

Team17’s upcoming action-platformer, Blasphemous, is officially set for a September 10th release date. The studio made a showing at this year’s Gamecom event and brought with it an all-new trailer for the title, announcing the much-anticipated release date in the process. Give it a watch above!
Based on what we have seen so far, this game does not shy away from the bloodshed, gore, and violence one bit as it offers a more dark fantasy take on the ever-classic Castlevania-style subgenre of platforming RPGs. This one certainly caught our eye when it was first revealed back in June and it’s great to see a release date not so far away. Will you be giving it a try?
Bloody, Brutal Platforming on Display in Reveal Trailer for Blasphemous
This dark and punishing action-platformer does not go light on the violence and bloodshed.
Blasphemous will put you in the shoes of the Penitent One, sole survivor of a massacre dubbed the “Silent Sorrow.” A curse has fallen upon the land of Cvstodi and this unlikely hero is trapped in a cycle of death and rebirth with the mission of freeing this world from its terrible fate, all while uncovering the truth behind the many questions left unanswered across this land.
At a glance, the game sticks to the classic action platforming style quite nicely in its non-linear approach, but the combat itself looks bloody and visceral with plenty of depth and customization. The trailer shows off a wide variety of abilities, combos, and executions, making this an instantly intriguing title based on the above footage alone.
Blasphemous arrives on September 10th, 2019. It will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. As usual, we’ll be sure to keep you posted with all the latest on this game right here on Dead Entertainment.
