You can now sign up to Beta test Song of Iron, an epic cinematic side-scrolling action game with brutal melee-focused combat, which follows a Norse warrior as he goes in search of the Great Temple of the Gods.
Previously featured on Alpha Beta Gamer last year, Song of Iron follows the story of a powerful Norse warrior who goes in search of the Great Temple of the Gods after his family are brutally slain. The gods may be able to aid your people, but first you’ll have to reach the temple – a long journey that will see you leaving a lot of dead bodies in your wake.
The combat in Song of Iron is very impressive, with your character’s diverse moveset making you capable of reacting to enemy attacks and dispatching them in some wonderfully brutal ways. You can pick up and use slain enemy weapons, use shields and fire arrows, as well as an assortment of dodges, kicks and throws. Fighting isn’t always the best option though – stealth can also be viable and can be useful for sneaking past quarts of pulling off stealth kills.
It’s shaping up to be a fantastic game, with a real sense of scale, stunning visuals and a great feeling of flow to the combat. Sign up for the Beta to to start breaking helms and splitting skulls!
