Strafe comes out on May 9 for PC and PlayStation 4 and to prepare for the release Devolver has dropped its carnage-laden launch trailer. This rogue-like shooter with a 90’s aesthetic is heavily inspired by Doom. The gameplay appears extremely fast-paced and there appears to be some hidden areas or segments different from the main path that might be secrets. Your arsenal isn’t a vast as most shooters. You pick one weapon and have its capabilities expanded through upgrades.
Devolver describes the story of Strafe as follows, “As a Scraper on a impossibly dangerous mission at the edge of the galaxy, you only have one life to navigate all the nightmarish terrains of STRAFE®. When you die, nothing will ever be the same again.”
Hopefully you will be lucky enough to grab its special physical edition. You can check out the launch trailer below:
