Your ultimate goal is to uncover the secret behind the alchemy that powers the automatons of Louis XVI.
1789 is the year of the Storming of the Bastille and the start of the monarchy’s downfall. Steelrising depicts an alternative version of history: what if King Louis XVI, who loved clockmaking, had built an army of robots capable of quelling the insurrection? Powerful and cruel, this army spares no one and violently punishes rebels. Paris is burning and bleeding. Men, women and children are being systematically massacred.
Aegis, an automaton created as a dancer for the pleasure of the Court, is now a warrior and Marie-Antoinette’s bodyguard. The Queen has tasked Aegis with cutting a path through Paris where the machines are sowing terror. Each fight with these mechanical enemies is a challenge where the player’s skills are severely tested. Such is the price to pay for those who want to change the course of history.
