It’s the revolution! In this uchronic story imagined by the French of Spiders, the player finds himself propelled into 18th century Paris, between the Bastille, the Invalides and the Palace of Versailles. King Louis XVI, gone mad, fomented a terrible plot against the people with the help of an expert engineer in automatons. Inspired by true history (here we cross paths with Queen Marie-Antoinette, Abbé Grégoire, La Fayette, Mirabeau, etc.), Steelrising, like any good fantastic story, quickly moves away from it to better propel the player into an adventure as harsh as it is epic.
The latter embodies an automaton, Aegis, who, in a very “souls like” spirit -understand in the vein of Dark Souls and other Elden Ring-, will chain fights in which the slightest error can be fatal. Save your progress and all the enemies reappear. A classic of the genre. However, Steelrising differs from From Software’s productions by offering options to adjust the difficulty. An original choice that allows players to enjoy an adventure, certainly demanding, but ultimately not prohibitive. Add to that some magnificent settings in this imaginary Paris and an attractive plot as Spiders knows how to develop, and you will obtain an unexpected title which constitutes an outstretched hand to all those who want to learn about the genre.
