The B.P.R.D. is ready to call us all back into some form of action with the reveal of Hellboy Web Of Wyrd. Another of the growing list of titles that were shown off during The Game Awards and this one is coming from Upstream Arcade and Good Shepherd Entertainment when it is all ready to flow out there. I mean, who does not want to add a little more Hellboy on their PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC? Well, I am sure there are some out there, but here we are to get more of the classic comic style of things. That is one of the selling points to this one here to get us all excited out there.
In addition to having the classic Hellboy art style for the game, we are getting an original story in the line for the Mike Mignola title. All in the style of a roguelite action title that will give us a whole new adventure to explore. It will be a drastic shift for those that only know the IP from the films, but I know it will be a good time. Even if most of the announcement trailer we have makes it all feel like it is a different style of game than that. Thankfully, we have a slight bit of gameplay for Hellboy Web Of Wyrd to take in here. All while keeping the cell-shading and comic-style to the look, we will be out there punching and shooting everything that stands against humanity and the innocent out there. Now if only we get to see what else will be in the mix from the comics too.
Hellboy Web Of Wyrd — Reveal
Hellboy Web Of Wyrd is a roguelite action adventure with an original story created in partnership with Dark Horse Comics and creator Mike Mignola.
Featuring monstrous toe-to-toe brawling, you need to chain together hard-hitting melee and ranged attacks to fight a diverse array of increasingly nightmarish enemies.
Like the comics, the game sends Hellboy on a series of vastly different and wholly unique adventures. While those stories stand on their own, they are all tied to the mysterious legacy of The Butterfly House. When an agent of the B.P.R.D. is sent on a reconnaissance mission to the mansion and promptly goes missing. It’s up to you - Hellboy - and your team of Bureau agents to find your missing colleague and uncover the secrets of The Butterfly House.
Welcome to the Butterfly House, a mysterious manor of perverse angles and non-Euclidean geometry built by occultist Pasquale Deneveaux to open a gateway to the Wyrd, a vast, interdimensional web of wondrous and horrifying planes of existence beyond our world. When a B.P.R.D. agent vanishes inside the mansion, it’s up to Hellboy and his team of agents to uncover its forbidden secrets.
Journey into the deepest realms of the Wyrd, each hiding a unique investigation into the unknown. Battle powerful creatures in search of forgotten god forms and magnificent treasures, but beware: ancient evil festers within the Wyrd’s darkest reaches… evil that wants out.
Key Game Features:
Hellboy Web Of Wyrd is in development for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
