The best shooter from not-quite-1996 finally comes to PC and PS4 this March.
STRAFE first appeared as a Kickstarter project in 2015, with developer Pixel Titans promising to deliver the best FPS of 1996. Players will be subjected to all the classic tropes of mid-to-late 90’s shooters- frantic gameplay, a wide variety of weapons, complex levels rife with progression-based puzzles, and a comical amount of violence. As satisfying as the core game may be, STRAFE will also feature elements of the Roguelike RPG sub-genre through randomly generated levels, enemy placement and available weapons.
One successful crowdfunding campaign later, STRAFE is scheduled to launch for PC and Mac this year under publisher Devolver Digital. A series of trailers and an “Uber-Gore” tech demo have teased fans over the duration of 2016, but the latest STRAFE trailer finally gives fans an official release date of March 28th.
The Steam store page is live, however users cannot pre-purchase the title as of this time. Again, STRAFE will be available on 3/28 as a digital title for PC, Mac and PS4.
