Steelrising is an action RPG set in the grimy streets of 18th century Paris in the midst of the French Revolution. Oh, and there’s robots. The majority of these murderous clockwork robots belong to King Louis XVI himself, and they’re designed to protect the doomed monarchy against the revolutionaries. As Aegis—an android guard belonging to Marie Antoinette—you’ll need to use your superhuman abilities to fight against these forces and, presumably, the king himself.
Sounds wild, and promising. Spiders has a reputation for ambitious RPGs that are a bit rough around the edges—think Greedfall, The Technomancer and Mars: War Logs, among others. It sounds like Steelrising is pushing further into action, with Spiders CEO Jehanne Rousseau writing that it has “a strong emphasis on fast-paced combat.”
