Is Steelrising a soulslike?
Yes. Steelrising is heavily inspired by the Souls games and the soulslike genre. The gameplay trailers of the title offer a wide look into the combat mechanics of the game. The attacking and dodging do bear similarities with a Dark Souls title.
The exclusive gameplay trailer also shows that the fights in Steelrising will not be easy. It seems Like dodging a certain attack on time is crucial in the game. Most enemies come with different attack patterns as well, making the game decent soulslike.
The gameplay trailer below includes a boss fight as well. Aegis fights against a massive mechanical bishop called the Bishop of the Cité.
Soulslikes games embrace a similar gameplay formula to FromSoftware’s Dark Souls trilogy. These games are often considered more difficult than other modern titles. They introduce boss fights and a wider variety of enemies that are considered hard to beat.
Players learn the attack patterns of the enemy and also their weaknesses. The high-risk combat mechanics of these games are also quite rewarding. That’s why the “Souls” formula enhances the sense of achievement. It seems like the new title of Spiders will be a new example of the genre.
Here’s everything we know about the upcoming action-adventure game. As of May 2022, the release date of Steelrising is not delayed and the game will arrive on 8th September 2022.
