2024, eh? Feels like a lifetime away, doesn’t it? Well we’re pretty sure it’ll be here before we know it and one game that will be dropping in as it does will be that of Vengeance is Mine.
From the 110 Industries team and having first been revealed with a trailer back in 2021, Vengeance is Mine is a merciless time-melting mech combat affair which is due to drop onto Xbox Series X|S, PS5 and PC in H1 2024. And yep, it’s looking like old-gen gamers will be out of luck with this one.
It’s a game in which you’ll fast discover that revenge is a dish best served cold, as some electrifying third-person mech combat attempts to play out. See, in Vengeance Is Mine, players step into the shoes of Gabriel Jaeger who was brutally executed by three time travelers heading back to 1664, to obtain an old piece of technology that will allow them to operate the Deacon – a derelict military installation buried under the streets of New Amsterdam. Charles Jaeger, now in full control of the Deacon, rallies his flock to meet their spiritual leader Robert Wright beyond the horizon of space and time. His only problem is Gabriel. Barely making it out alive, Gabriel is in control of the prototype HYDRA mech suit and ready to wreak his revenge.
The combat is going to be the main draw here and as the melee mech battles play out, you’ll find that it is all augmented with a time-manipulation mechanic that adds a fascinating twist to encounters. That is thanks to the capabilities of the HYDRA mech suit, as the player will have the ability to speed up time and blink towards unsuspecting enemies, or rewind time to readjust combos or evade death. HYDRA also comes packing an energy-based projectile weapon that allows you to take on foes at distance.
Drop in with Vengeance is Mine in the first half of 2024 on Xbox, PlayStation or PC and you’ll get to experience all of the carnage as well as a killer soundtrack. It’s this which will feature music from Queen, Giorgio Moroder and Stefanie Joosten. Moroder and Joosten have come together for the first time, putting their legendary talents to use to record the title song for the game, making for one truly epic track.
“We’re thrilled to announce that Vengeance Is Mine will be completed in 2023 and launch in H1 2024,” said Sergei Kolobashkin, Creative Director at 110 Industries. “We are fascinated with the progress. Soleil is the best team ever for the job with folks from Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Final Fantasy XV also collaborating on the game.”
