There are many games which have allowed us the opportunity to become the most feared of monster hunters – the brilliant Monster Hunter: World, for one – but not many arm you with just a crossbow. As the title suggests though, that’s exactly the case in Crossbow Crusade on Xbox.
Priced at a mere £4.19 and coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S thanks to the ChiliDog Interactive team, Crossbow Crusade will put you in the grim and gritty setting of the Dead Kingdom. Following the life and times of a legendary monster hunter, it’ll be up to you to grab the nearest trench coat, and take aim with the most trusty of crossbows in order to clear a dying world of hordes of monsters. And it looks like you’ll be using that same crossbow to create platforms as well.
Crossbow Crusade is delivered through a 1990s styled pixel art design, promising responsive controls (we should hope so too!), a rewarding fighting system and the chance to go up against some seriously challenging enemies. Basically put, if you know how to handle yourself in a run-and-gunner, the chance to prove yourself is here in Crossbow Crusade.
It certainly all looks nice enough, particularly if you’re in the market for a new pixelated platformer, so head on over to the Xbox Store and fire the shots required of an Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S download right now.
And if you’re not sold? Well, our full review of Crossbow Crusade is in the works. We’ll let you know if it hits the spot.
You are the legendary monster hunter on a mission to survive the slaughter through the Dead Kingdom. Armed only with a trusty crossbow and old-fashioned trench coat, you have to reach the bowels of a dying country riddled with hordes of blood-soaking monsters. These scoundrels have to be hunted down! In Crossbow Crusade you will have everything needed from instant platforming classics — challenging enemies, hard and rewarding fight system, 90’s-style pixel art and responsive controls. All these features make for a great platforming experience suitable for new gamers and genre veterans alike!
