Bleeding Edge Is Out Now, And Its On Game Pass

Bleeding Edge Is Out Now, And Its On Game Pass nmprofetimg 1585

Bleeding Edge finally launches today on PC and Xbox One, and if you happen to be a member of Xbox Game Pass, you can already play it at no additional cost. The game is being put out by the recently acquired Xbox studio Ninja Theory, and like all of Microsoft’s first-party offerings it’s being included in the subscription service.

The melee-focused team shooter is inspired by MOBAs, and our own hands-on impressions found it fun but with a steep learning curve. The Standard version costs $30 without Game Pass.

Each team is expected to have one damage, one tank, one support, and a fourth player who can change roles according to the team’s need. It also has a unique emphasis on footprints, with each character generating a unique sound. Once you get to know the roster well enough, you’ll be able to tell who’s sneaking up on you without ever seeing them.

Bleeding Edge joins other new Game Pass additions for the month of March, which include Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, The Surge 2, and Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, along with fellow Xbox Game Studios game Ori and the Will of the Wisps.

With a cast of colorful and bizarre characters, Bleeding Edge is a far cry from some of Ninja Theory’s other recent work, like the critically acclaimed Hellblade: Sensua’s Sacrifice. Hellblade 2 is currently in development, but Ninja Theory has already announced it has ambitious plans that push some limits on game design, like the experimental horror experience Project: Mara.
