Beat 'em up 'Raging Justice' gets long-awaited release window [updated]

Recently, developer MakinGames and publisher Team17 announced that Raging Justice would release in Q2 2018. Then, a May release window was floating around without any real confirmation. Luckily, that changed today because the companies officially announced that Raging Justice should launch on May 8, 2018. The title will be available on Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4.

Updated March 6, 2018: Instead of the May 2018 release window, Raging Justice got a concrete release date. We've updated our information to reflect that.

Aside from the release date announcement, MakinGames revealed a third playable character named Ashley King. King is a street-smart child with a backpack full of weapons. Jay Howse, the lead artist for Raging Justice, said the following about the new character.

We chose a teenager because I wanted something different to the usual 'veteran cop/ex-military' type. I wanted more of a fish out of water type character, someone who might have ended up in the situation by accident but still manages to hold their own and kick some serious arse!

Raging Justice is a classic-style brawler brought back to life with high-resolution graphics and surround sound. You battle your way through hordes of thugs, unleashing maximum brutality with your character's savage fighting style. The best part is that you can choose to arrest or annihilate your foes. Whether you play as a good cop or bad cop has consequences and will result in a different ending.

The streets of Big Smoke City aren't for the faint-hearted. Gang lords and their thugs rule, and there's danger around every corner. The city doesn't need a hero, it needs someone who is tough and rough enough to take on the scum that festers in the streets. The goal is to clean up the streets by essentially beating up everyone in sight.
