Slain: Back From Hell Out September 20 on PS4

Sharpen your steel, harden your heart, and get ready to headbang in honor of the Great Horned Metal God, because on September 20 Slain: Back from Hell is set to carve a bloody swathe onto PS4 for $14.99 — with a 10% discount for all PlayStation Plus members.

Set in a dark and archaic world, you take the role of the doomed hero Bathoryn, a grizzled warrior dragged reluctantly from his mortal slumber. He must slice and dice his way across the blighted realm of villainous Lord Vroll, vanquishing his many gruesome underlings and twisted boss lieutenants along the way.

Comprehensively augmented and refined for its release on PS4, the game blends brutally intense melee combat with unforgiving platform action (so the faint-hearted had best steer well clear). Our aim was to blend the best of classic 90’s hack ‘n’ slash games with modern gameplay dynamics, but freed from the hand-holding of mainstream titles.

Your tools are a trusty sword, a flaming blade, an axe made from ice, and powerful mana magic, all of which you will need to employ strategically to avoid being eviscerated, immolated, skewered, burned, and butchered.

The striking pixel art visuals of creator Andrew Gilmour bring your favorite metal album covers to gory, gothic life whilst the action is accompanied by a brooding soundtrack of purest heavy metal, penned by Curt Victor Bryant (formerly of the infamous band Celtic Frost).

May fire, ice, and steel prevail!

  • I’d prefer to play this on Vita since it’s coming out there. Is this cross-buy with that version or are they seperate purchases? If separate, will the Vita version also get a launch discount?

  • Lol, I think I HAVE TO buy this

  • Hoping, it is Cross buy with the Vita version. Looks like it might have separate trophy lists.

    The game gives me Castlevania vibes. Congratz on the release on PSN….looking forward to the Vita port if it works out.

    More Steam games should come here.

  • Im getting on VITA, for a perfect Halloween.

  • VITAAAA… hopefully there will be cross buy?

  • I’ll buy it when it’s out on Vita.

  • This game looks amazing and it would be a perfect fit for the PS Vita, so if it’ll ever get released on Vita I’m buying it day one!

  • Looking forward to the PS Vita version!

  • Fear not, Vita owners – Slain: Back From Hell will indeed be a Cross-buy title, so you can enjoy being chopped up into meaty chunks repeatedly at home, at the office or whilst hiding in a dumpster, waiting for the cops to leave.

  • Nice. Can’t wait forVita

  • Any coop mode? Local or online?

  • Wait, what?? This beauty is coming to ps Vita too !? This mean day 1 buy for me…
    (too bad there’s no mention in the post about the Vita release but anyways…. ) Thanks for the upcoming Vita Version !

  • I bought it today because it looks to wicked, but I’m really looking forward to the Vita version! Thanks for throwing us Vita owners a bone!

  • Buying this as soon as the PS Store gets updated this afternoon/evening… Everything is usually up on there by/working right by 7-8 pm EST for me every Tuesday.

    Definitely excited for this!! I love me some heavy metal.. Granted I’m more of a “Doom” metal guy if you wanna get into genres… But I don’t play the genre game it’s all metal to me.

    Been listening to Pagan Altar, Pentagram, and of course Black Sabbath… But seriously like I have listened to a Pagan Altar album at least once a day for the last 6 months.. I’m hooked.. If you’ve never heard of them I highly suggest you do… Same goes for Pentagram…

    Either way.. This game looks glorious.. The music, the side-scrolling (2d metroidvania baby!!!) Castlevania: SOTN is my all-time favorite game ever. Reminds me of so much stuff and the MUSIC!!! I even get a little metalocalypse vibe from the trailer/main character haha

    I can’t wait!! I saw that it released on steam earlier this year..

    I have absolutely no idea how this game slipped through the cracks. I’m glued to all sorts of gaming websites. I didn’t hear about it until yesterday. Perfect timing like always I suppose!!!!

  • I am so glad that I can still count on indie developers to release the type of games that I want to play. Give me a good side scrolling action game with great graphics and color me happy. I will be buying this game for sure!
