Today, Bleeding Edge launched on Xbox One and PC. Bleeding Edge is a 4v4 team-based brawler developed by Ninja Theory and published by Xbox Game Studios. There's many different MOBA-like elements, with different classes such as Fighters, Support and Tanks.
Bleeding Edge is the first multiplayer game released by Ninja Theory under its current name and the first Xbox Game Studios title the studio has released since being acquired by Microsoft in 2018. The team at Ninja Theory is committing to post-launch content, with both a ranked mode and the dolphin tank Mekko coming sometime soon after the game's launch.
For more information on what players can expect from Bleeding Edge, including any possible post-launch support, you can check out my interview with Creative Director Rahni Tucker right here.
On the edge

All you can play
More games than you'll ever need

Downloading as we speak. Got a team of mates all ready to go in the UK lockdown.
I was busy playing Ori tonight, but I'll get this downloaded tomorrow and I'll play it after work.
I honestly don't want the game to fail but yeah it probably will.
Not likely. The beta was fantastic. And was played by millions. Alot of people like this one. And it's free on Gamepass with no Microtransactions. It looks like it will do fine.
Played several games. It's pretty fun if a tad hectic at times. Theres some bad lag at times that makes it harder. Hopefully get that ironed out soon.
I'm hoping some new game modes get added, as the two on offer get rather repetitive, and there also doesn't seem to be a huge variety of levels, at least I haven't seen many. but it's not a full retail release price, so for $39.95 AUD it's definitely worth it. That being said, I really need a group, because I'm sick of playing with people that ignore the objective. That and I also need to learn how to parry.
