Gameplay Preview

We were lucky enough to get our hands on Scars Above during Gamescom 2022 and even included it in our 'Best in Show' list. We were impressed with not only the graphical fidelity (we played it on PS5) but just about every aspect of the gameplay was impressive.

The general gunplay which then evolved with elemental combat all the way through to the level structure which had real Metroidvania inspirations of 'come back here when you've found a certain item'.

While what we played was just a small slice of the game, it left us wanting more and it's great to know that we won't have to wait too long to play the full experience.
