Bleeding Edge is an upcoming online melee action game from Ninja Theory. The team developed games like DmC: Devil May Cry and Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, so the combat pedigree is strong.

All you have to do is head over to the Bleeding Edge website here and click the giant button that says "Join the Alpha."
