Developers Transhuman Design have announced the release date of their upcoming title BUTCHER. Being published on Xbox One and PS4 by Crunching Koalas, BUTCHER is a 2D Shooter that is a ‘blood-soaked love letter’ to the classic games of the genre. Releasing on PS4 9th May and Xbox One 10th May 2017, priced $9.99, €9.99, £7.99. There’s more info and a trailer below.
As a cyborg programmed to eradicate the last remains of humanity, your sole purpose is to well… annihilate anything that moves. Grab your weapon of choice (from chainsaw, through shotgun, to grenade launcher) and kill your way through underground hideouts, post-apocalyptic cities, jungles and more. And if you’re feeling creative, there are plenty other ways of ending your enemies’ misery – hooks, lava pits, saws… no death will ever be the same.
If kicking corpses into a lava pit and adorning walls with blood is your idea of a good time, BUTCHER is THE game for you.
BUTCHER’s main features:
-Ultra-violent uncompromising carnage in the spirit of Doom and Quake (chainsaw included).
-Release your inner artist, paint the walls with (permanent) blood (up to 4 million pixels available to be painted per level).
-Use the environment (saws, hooks, lava pits, animals and other) to brutally dispose of your enemies.
-Put your reflex and patience to the ultimate test.
-Choose from an array of weapons (featuring classics like chainsaw, railgun and the deadly grenade launcher).
-Soak in the dark atmosphere reinforced by a wicked, heavy soundtrack (while you kick corpses around).
-Die painfully: melt in lava, become piranha food, get crushed by heavy doors… and more!
-Absolutely no mercy for anyone!
BUTCHER releases on PS4 9th May and Xbox One 10th May 2017.
