Strider

[adsense250itp]Strider is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in new title set to release early 2014, Capcom announced at San Diego Comic Con.

The game is being developed by Double Helix. The studio’s previous work includes the 2008 title Silent Hill Homecoming and 2012’s Battleship video game. Double Helix is also currently developing the Killer Instinct reboot, which is set to release exclusively for Xbox One.

Strider Hiyru will be returning as the main character in the new side-scrolling action title. The quick combat and free-flowing action that made the franchise famous is back for the new Strider game. However, players will have much more moves and weapons at their disposal this time around. Strider will have access to new plasma cypher variations and ranged weapons to defeat enemies. Players will even be able to call for support from allies to help defeat the most difficult opponents.

Unique, varied enemy types throughout the game will provide for challenging combat scenarios. Enemies include cybernetic soldiers, bio-mechanical creatures and everything in between.

The game is set in a dystopian future Earth in the year Meio: 048. An oppressive ruler named Grand Master Meio has gained control of the entire planet and is ruling with an iron fist. Strider is the only person capable of freeing the planet from his rule and destroying the evil emperor.

Strider will be exploring the metropolitan environment of Kazakh City, which features a mix of traditional Russian architecture and futuristic buildings. Players will be able to explore the city freely and see how the massive environment interconnects.

The Strider franchise began with the release of the original arcade game Strider in 1989. After experiencing success in arcades, Strider was later ported to consoles.

Capcom released a trailer alongside the announcement of the new Strider game. The trailer can be viewed below.
