Bleeding Edge is a third-person multiplayer melee combat action game developed by Ninja Theory and published by Xbox Game Studios, available on Xbox and PC via the Windows Store and Steam. The closed beta was available on February 14, 2020. The game was fully released on March 24, 2020.
The game is set in a futuristic, dystopic cyberpunk rendition of the real world in the year 2055. World governments have become corrupt and corporate society only looks on. Tired of the system, Daemon forms a gang of misfits known as the Bleeding Edge. After taking his revenge on those who wronged him, Daemon takes the Bleeding Edge to the underworld of fighting circuits. It is here that he intends to recruit an army of the augmented to the Bleeding Edge and redeem himself for his past actions.
Bleeding Edge pits two teams of four players against one another in close-quarters melee and ranged combat. Players are able to choose between a number of Fighters, with thirteen Fighters currently available. Each fighter has their own unique story, characteristics and abilities. These abilities are divided into three categories: Basic Abilities, Specials, and Supers. The statistics and features of these abilities can be altered to suit a specific playstyle by equipping Mods to a Fighter before a game in a loadout of the player's design made from the mods available to them. Fighters may also be personally customized with new Boards (if they use one), Emotes, and Skins.
