A heavily stylized fighting game in the vein of “Overwatch”, “Bleeding Edge” is the first title to be announced by the “Enslaved” developer after the studio’s acquirement by Microsoft.
The leaked trailer introduces a slew of new characters against an insane and colorful backdrop, including the shield-wielding Buttercup and fire-breathing Nidhoggr. “Devil May Cry” combat director Rahni Tucker is also namechecked during the video, so we can expect some similarly over-the-top action.
According to the trailer, a Technical Alpha test is scheduled to go live on June 27. Additionally, we can expect to see the game release onto both Xbox One and Windows 10 with cross-platform support, considering this is an Xbox Game Studios release.
This year’s Xbox E3 briefing will take place on Sunday, June 9 at 1:00 p.m. PT. Those of you at home can watch the event live streamed on Microsoft’s livestreaming platform Mixer, and on Xbox’s official YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, and its Facebook.
