Koei Tecmo has released new screenshots and gameplay videos of the upcoming action game Berserk and the Band of the Hawk, detailing the combat styles.
A lone mercenary and the series’ main protagonist, Guts wields an impressive array of powerful weapons to choose from, and each alters the pace of gameplay. For example, utilizing his massive Dragonslayer Great Sword allows for devastating attacks, and players will subsequently feel the weight of the weapon throughout battle. Similarly, players can enjoy customized playstyles tailored to the other playable characters, like Griffith’s rapid sword attacks and Schierke’s magical powers.
Utilizing a vast array of different weapon styles, players will slash and smash their way through gripping battles in Berserk and the Band of the Hawk. Attacks become more ferocious as a fight rages on, allowing players to smash monsters against walls or slash them in two with a single strike! However, during the course of his adventures Guts encounters creatures known as Apostles – giant demonic monsters that possess deadly attacks. Unlike other enemies, typical battle strategies will not work on these beasts, and players must make swift tactical decisions in order to take them down. These exciting sequences aim to perfectly capture the tense, action-packed style of Berserk.
Berserk and the Band of the Hawk will be released for the PS Vita and PS4 in North America on February 21, 2017 and in Europe on February 24, 2017. The PS4 version will be available both physically and digitally and the PS Vita version digital only.
