As an all-new game from Ninja Theory, Bleeding Edge offers a one-of-a-kind experience that combines third-person action combat with online team multiplayer. Choose your fighter and join a team of super-charged renegades from the edges of society, executing powerful synergized attacks to become an unstoppable force in the face of your enemies. Freeze foes in time, control minds, ride missiles and unleash electrifying guitar solos in fast-paced yet strategic combat system that rewards technique, timing and teamwork. The game is in development for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC as an Xbox Play Anywhere title.
At the end of my short hands-on session, I was definitely impressed with Bleeding Edge. While the game’s concept isn’t exactly new, as it reminded me of Platinum Games’ Anarchy Reigns, Bleeding Edge has a lot of potential, and it could become the next big multiplayer sensation if supported well.
Got my invite today so just had a few games. Good fun and polished. Not sure how balanced it is but that's what the beta is for.
Basically got a normal attack, a hoverboard, 3 special attacks for each character with cooldowns, 1 passive ability and 1 Super attack (choice of 2) which builds up during the match. You have 3 mods such as extra health etc which you select before the match.
