Morbid Metal Gameplay Trailer Shows Devil May Cry-Like Combat

The Future Games Show 2022 featured a trailer for Morbid Metal, a cyberpunk action title that channels Devil May Cry’s intense combat.

A brand new indie hack-and-slash Steam game titled Morbid Metal seeks to channel the elegant and intense action of the devil may cry series in a gritty, post-apocalyptic setting. Morbid Metal was first announced in February and was one of many upcoming projects showcased during the Future Games Show live portion of the Summer Game Fest 2022 celebration.

While Thursday’s Summer Game Fest event largely spotlighted triple-A blockbusters like Gotham Knights and Street Fighter 6, Saturday was all about small Steam releases across a wide range of genres. Future Games Show and Guerrilla Collective 3.0 live streams featured a wide range of original titles, such as Fight Quest (which features actual wrestling icons as allies the player can summon in turn-based RPG battles), Brewmaster (in which players craft the perfect beer by mixing ingredients), and the last faith (a 2D Metroidvania title that drew comparisons to transmitted by blood due to its Gothic art style).

The the devil may cry the series recently returned to the limelight with 2019 The devil may cry 5which was well received following the division DMC: the devil may cry in 2013. The popularity of the devil may cryThe fighting styles and game mechanics of Morbid Metal can help it stand out alongside other similar titles.
