Battlecry is a great looking new team-based third person shooter/brawler from Bethesda with a beautiful steampunk-esque visual style, a strong focus on melee combat and lots of lovely blood splatter.
In a similar vein as Team Fortress and Overwatch, there’s a high reliance on playing to your class and using teamwork to defeat your opponents. Battles are 12 v 12 or 6 v 6, with a choice of three factions and (at the moment) five classes – Brawler, Enforcer, Infiltrator, Ranger and Gadgeteer.
The art style of Battlecry really impresses, a comic book inspired steampunk-esque design by veteran game artist Viktor Antonov (Half-Life 2 & Dishonored). Gameplay is satisfyingly brutal, with visceral combat that’s a feast for the eyes, as bodies explode into piles of limbs and splatters of blood. It’s a great looking game, but we’d hate to be on clean-up duty after one of there matches!
