Devil's Hunt

Devil’s Hunt will launch for PC via Steam on September 17, followed by PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch in Q1 2020, publisher 1C Entertainment and developer Layopi Games announced. The Switch version is newly announced.

While the game was originally slated to launch simultaneously across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Layopi Games made the decision to move the console release date to early 2020 “in order to ensure the game’s PC debut has the polish and commitment to quality befitting an extravagant third person action game where players fight their way through Hell, Jerusalem, and… Miami?”

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

About

Based on Equilibrium, an original novel by Pawel Lesniak , this third-person action game resurrects the everlasting fight between light and darkness, good and evil, as full-fledged war between Angels and Demons seems imminent and our world is the proposed battleground. You are Desmond, the sole factor that can tilt the scales in favor of one of the opposing party, be it demons or angels. One man now has the power to decide the fate of humanity and the world as we know it.

Story

Once a bon vivant son of a rich entrepreneur, Desmond’s life has been steered into a sequence of unfortunate events that led him to lose most of his humanity. Gaining demonic powers and becoming the hell’s executor, he struggles to find a place for himself in the ongoing war. He is both the destroyer and the savior, as his human part is gradually stepping out of the shade of his hunger for vengeance. He fights fiercely with his fists and claws, making use of the skills both his demonic and human sides offer. Passing through the gates of hell and back, he will eventually have to decide where his place is.
