Stealth Action Game UnMetal is coming to PC and Console This Summer

The indie publisher Versus Evil and the developer Unepic_Fran announced that UnMetal is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG this summer. The official release date will be announced in the following weeks.

At the moment, a playable demo is available on Steam, along with other reveals and demos that are part of Steam’s Next Fest starting today.

Let’s now talk more about the game. UnMetal’s setting is inspired by the 80’s movie and TV nostalgia. Top-down 2D pixel-art visuals give the game unique retro feels and you have to conduct a covert mission to escape a clandestine military base for a crime you didn’t commit. Espionage and deception go hand in hand as you take out video cameras with grenades, knock out nosy predictable guards and subdue pursuing enemies with military-grade hardware when things inevitably go haywire.

“When Versus Evil first started to talk with UnEpic_Fran about UnMetal, I honestly didn’t know what to expect. Once we played UnMetal and started learning more, we were hooked. This isn’t just a stealth action game, but a game that is fun, challenging, and wrapped up into a classic retro design filled with intelligent humor. There are truly some genuine laugh out loud moments in this game that make you feel like you are quoting lines from your favorite movie. The Versus Evil team could not be more excited to launch UnMetal.” Said Steve Escalante,General Manager of Versus Evil.

Your own escape mission will start this summer on consoles and Steam, GOG, Epic Game Store, Humble Store, Gamesplanet, VersusEvil.com and all other approved Versus Evil PC retailers.
