What you need to know

During X019 in London, Xbox Game Studios provided a little update on Ninja Theory's new multiplayer IP, Bleeding Edge. It's set to release on March 24 next year and you can preorder it starting today on the Microsoft Store for just $30.

Choose your fighter from a diverse cast of colourful characters from the edges of society: burn rubber as bold and beautiful Buttercup with her detachable saw blade arms, wreak havoc as Black-Metal rocker Niđhöggr with his electrifying guitar solos or slash up the streets as Daemon, New York's most wanted assassin.

According to its store page, the game will support 4K resolution and Xbox Play Anywhere, which allows players to buy one digital copy and access it on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. Closed betas for Bleeding Edge are being held in February and March 2020 shortly before its launch.

Those who preorder now will also receive a few in-game bonuses as well, including:

  • 3 exclusive fighter skins:
  • Rioter's Hoverboard
  • Make Your Mark in-game Sticker Pack
  • 3 bonus taunts

  • This game looks so bad. I have no investment in Hellblade or Ninja Theory, I had to look those up to see why people were so disappointed with the developer. I simply saw Bleeding Edge at E3 and was shocked at how bad it looked. I came to get Windows Central's take. The art style, the characters, the gameplay, the premise, everything about Bleeding Edge looks so terrible. I can not watch the trailer without cringing. It looks like a terrible mash-up of all of the worst parts of Suicide Squad, Overwatch, Borderlands, and games that are not fun. I can not understand how there is a chain of professionals who are working day in and day out to ship this game. It's actually sad to think about how much effort is being wasted on development, that could have been used to make something worthwhile. Unbelievable.
