We reviewed the original release of Redeemer almost two years ago and really enjoyed the game. Last year, an Enhanced Edition of the game was announced which after several delays is now set for a 12th July, 2019 release.
Redeemer: Enhanced Edition is an intense modern take on the Brawler genre where you will punch, hack and blast your way through enemies using fists, hammers, fire arms and even the environment.
Watch the Redeemer: Enhanced Edition announcement trailer below:
Players take the role of Vasily, a once elite operative working for the biggest Cybernetic Weapon Manufacturer in the world. Vasily narrowly escaped to a secluded monastery when the corporation turned on him, willing to make him one of its cyborg soldiers.
For 20 years he tried to find peace and harmony amongst fellow monks until the corporation eventually tracked him down. They are now closing-in on Vasily’s location. In so doing, they have given him one last shot at redemption.
