Beyond Flesh and Blood is a story-driven 3rd person action/shooter game, with horror overtones and sci-fi gore. Bringing together dystopian themes of dehumanization, cybernetics, political instability and environmental disaster, Pixelbomb Games has created a mech-in-mech, immersive experience where the objective is to tactically understand and utilize your environment in a battle against deadly enemies.
Players must battle their way through multiple gore-filled levels, blasting apart grotesque enemy hives, eliminating wave after wave of enemy scum with powerful weapons that push player’s skills to the limit.
Players become Ethan, and through him, jack into advanced multi-ability Tactical Combat Frames, or mechs, and battle a range of formidable enemies while accessing progressive weapon systems across the post-apocalyptic UK city in fast-paced gameplay.
There will be no love lost between hostile enemy classes in a bid to lay the foundations for a safe, human return as gamers’ skills will be tested to the limit.
The game is focused on visual atmosphere and tactical gameplay, it’s been important to Pixelbomb as gamers from the outset that every element of the game be as extraordinary as possible. They’ve made one of the most enhancing features of the game is its environments, set within the re-imagined post-apocalyptic landscape of Manchester UK 2281.
Featuring the real-life locations of Beetham Tower and Albert Square (complete with a Town Hall), the single-player videogame features iconic landmarks and 4 huge, hulking mechs to choose from. Beyond Flesh and Blood promises dropships, drones and menacing alien enemy classes that make the most of Unreal 4, as well as subtle artful homage to traditional Japanese mech culture with a British sci-fi twist.
