Let’s take a look at what Battle Axe is, how much it costs, and where you can get a copy!
Taking A Look At Battle Axe For The PS5, Out November 18th 2022!
If you love hack ‘n slash gameplay akin to Gauntlet Dark Legacy, then get ready to have your mind blown.
There’s a reason this title looks so fantastic too; the one and only Henk Nielborg is behind the artwork for Battle Axe.
It also has a killer soundtrack thanks to the inclusion of Manami Matsumae on the team.
That basically puts this Battle Axe PS5 Edition into the ‘gaming royalty’ category!
What Is Battle Axe?
Battle Axe brings top-down hack-a-licious gameplay to your PS5. It’s a fantasy epic which sees players moving through Mercia.
The premise – prevent an evil sorceress by the name of Etheldred from ruling your beloved homeland.
That’s the lady on the front cover of the Battle Axe PS5 edition game case. It’s time to take her down by doing what all the other mercenaries before you have failed to do.
Actually killing her and not being killed in the process.
Play as Fae the Elf, Iolo the Druid, or Rooney the Marauder.
No, that isn’t Wayne Rooney. This one actually has some skill.
The graphics have a very comic book feel about them which I’m a huge fan of. It’s like Comix Zone got updated and filled with a tonne of evil goblins.
Play single player or team up with other players in local co-op for those ‘LEROY JENKINS’ moments.
How Much Is The PS5 Battle Axe Special Edition?
The Battle Axe PS5 Edition is priced at £39.99 / €49.99 / $44.95 and can be downloaded or bought from Amazon from November 18th.
If you’re an American or Canadian gamer, then physical copies are dropping this December, but that isn’t long to wait.
Previous versions of the game are also receiving some sweet upgrades including a new difficult mode, new strafing, and other little tweaks and adjustments to give gamers an even better experience while playing.
