  • Streets of Rage 4 is an upcoming beat 'em up.
  • It revives the classic franchise that has been dormant for decades.
  • It's coming to Xbox One and other platforms on April 30.
  • Streets of Rage 4 will be part of Xbox Game Pass.

Streets of Rage 4 is an upcoming side-scrolling beat 'em up video being developed by a number of teams. It's coming to Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4. Today, the developers revealed a new trailer alongside the April 30 release date. The best part is that Xbox One owners don't need to buy it, because it's part of Xbox Game Pass.

If you're on a platform that doesn't have Xbox Game Pass, you'll have to purchase the game for $25.

The trailer reveals the first look at Streets of Rage 4's Battle Mode, a legacy experience returning from Streets of Rage 2 and 3. This feud-settling battleground is bound to help rivals recognize who truly is Wood Oak City's finest alley-clearing ruffian, as well as settle grudges spurred by accidental friendly strikes during multiplayer sessions. Witness just a few of the ways champions will be able to dominate their allies.

Are you excited for Streets of Rage 4? It's been so long and I can't wait to get my hands on the game in a few weeks!
