KILL KNIGHT is PlaySide Studios’ next big action game

Posted on April 11, 2024

Get ready to plunge into a world of adrenaline-pumping action with the upcoming release of KILL KNIGHT! Developed by Melbourne’s (Naarm) own PlaySide Studios, creators of Age of Darkness: Final Stand, KILL KNIGHT promises to deliver. Unveiled during the Triple-i Initiative, this thrilling isometric shooter is slated to hit the gaming scene later in 2024, launching on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch.

In KILL KNIGHT, you play as a once-loyal knight who has been betrayed and cast into the Abyss, only to rise again as the formidable KILL KNIGHT with a singular mission: to eliminate the last angel. Armed to the teeth, you’ll navigate through five treacherous layers of the Abyss, each more perilous than the last, as you strive to conquer challenges. Brace yourselves as you embark on a journey through the depths of an eldritch arena, where you’ll confront hordes of otherworldly adversaries and unleash havoc with an array of powerful weapons.

Featuring lightning-fast combat that rewards both aggression and precision, KILL KNIGHT immerses players in a hauntingly beautiful yet sinister world teeming with retro-inspired visuals and a corrosive atmosphere. As you progress, you’ll have the opportunity to unlock new gear for your Knight’s Arsenal, allowing you to tailor your playstyle to suit your preferences.

The path to victory won’t be easy. From exploiting enemy weaknesses to strategic maneuvers, every decision you make will mark how your journey goes in the Abyss. You can choose to tackle the game’s challenges solo or compete against friends on the global leaderboards.

We’re keen to dive headfirst into 2023’s Australian Games Studio of the Year newest game and unleash our inner warrior on an epic quest to vanquish the forces of darkness. KILL KNIGHT releases later this year on all platforms.
