Sci-Fi Action Platformer Blackwind Arrives on All Platforms Jan 20th, 2022

SYDNEY -- Nov. 2, 2021
-- Blackwind, the sci-fi action-platformer with hack-and-slash combat, from Drakkar Dev and publisher Blowfish Studios, arrives on, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC via Steam and GOG, as well as the Mac App Store on Thursday, Jan. 20, 2022. Physical versions lock-on to retail shelves courtesy of Perp Games on Friday Jan. 21, 2022 in European regions with North American copies arriving at a later date.

The peaceful human mining colony on the planet Medusa-42 suddenly faces an invasion by the Raknos, a ruthless alien race hellbent on destroying everything in sight. James Hawkins, a teen with no formal training, finds himself alone after a crash landing in his father’s revolutionary battle mech prototype. Fortunately, the Battle Frame’s AI, Blackwind, provides all the companionship and protection Hawkins needs. Only together can the pair fight their way through the hostile planet, find Hawkins’ father, and destroy the alien threat.

Hack-and-slash through dynamic isometric locations with energy blades, blasters, missiles, mines, and grenades to clear out the barbarous alien threat. Solve brain-teasing environmental puzzles while leaping and grappling around obstacles and adversaries. Rip through the hordes of Raknos bipeds, spiders, drones, swarms, and other dangerous forms with a wide range of melee and ranged attacks. Unleash devastating blows with brutal termination finishers before moving on to the next foe.

Deploy the detachable Battle Frame Drone to extend combat and exploration capabilities. Evolve the Battle Frame by expanding three skill trees with dozens of upgrades and abilities. Choose between three difficulty levels to traverse the planet alone or with a friend in local co-op mode where Player One controls the Battle Frame while Player Two attacks using the agile Drone to deal damage throughout imaginative sci-fi landscapes.

March across sand-swept deserts, scale snowy mountains, and trek through dense forests, all full of deadly bosses like massive alien war beasts or time-bending shamans. Search top-secret scientific research facilities across the campaign to defeat the Raknos threat and solve the mystery behind their true mission.

“Blackwind’s beautiful terrain is nearly ready to purge of the vicious alien threat,” said Manlio Greco, Designer, Drakkar Dev. “We hope everyone will take on the challenge of classic fast-paced sci-fi action and meticulously search for all the secrets we’ve hidden within.”

“Blackwind is all about fast, brutal action and we love it” said Rob Edwards, Managing Director at Perp Games. “We are very proud to be working with Blowfish and Drakkar Dev, to bring you the physical boxed version of this frenetic mech shooter.”

Blackwind will be available for $19.99 / £12.99 / €15.99 with support for English, Italian, French, Spanish, German language options.
