Ninja Theory's colorful 4v4 brawler drops on the 24th. Looks like CULT missed the beta earlier this month... but the game is cheap enough at $30 that everyone who's interested should be able to snap it up at launch.

Interestingly, the publisher on Steam is listed as Ninja Theory, just like with Hellblade. Seems like they are treating it as a pre-Microsoft deal game.

Ninja Theory wrote:Team Up. Cause Chaos.

Grab your team and tear it up in Bleeding Edge, an electrifying online brawler where every fighter comes mechanically enhanced for mayhem!

Choose your fighter from a diverse cast of colourful characters from the edges of society: burn rubber as bold and beautiful Buttercup with her detachable saw blade arms, wreak havoc as Black-Metal rocker Niđhöggr with his electrifying guitar solos or slash up the streets as Daemon, New York’s most wanted assassin.

Come. Join us. The cybernetic clash of the century is about to begin!

TREACHEROUS TERRAIN
Use your environment to your advantage with deadly arena hazards and gain the upper hand in moments of chaos. Yank opponents into a high voltage electric fence with Buttercup’s saw blade. Charge enemy aggressors into the path of an oncoming train with Makutu’s shoulder barge. Trap careless enemies within Maeve’s magical cage and light a raging fire beneath their very feet.

Yeah, I don't know how I missed this beta. I need to up my beta game. We would have had first-hand accounts of the game now, and I guess a bit of fun too. But it doesn't look like it was such a big loss because the game frankly sounds ass. I've already noted on Discord, after looking at some footage for two minutes, that the game has infinite respawns a la Overwatch, and indeed that's the design they seem to be aiming for, so that completely tanked my interest in the game. And to cinch the deal here are some comments of people who did play the beta:

It's has literally nothing to master and it won't hold any competetive player for more than a day. Might be two days. Just skip it if you're looking for an intense pvp game.

Its price is not a problem, core gameplay itself is the biggest issue and the reason this game will die. Goodluck keeping this game alive only with casuals.

You know how many things in this game requires any skill? One, only one it's parry, also parry is kinda useless.

Map designs are terrible.
Characters are boring as hell, the only cool design is Daemon (go figure, the mascot...)
The game takes ZERO skill outside of just sticking together with your team.
It's a casual arena brawler made for consoles. It will die.

None of the beta footage or streams looked remotely good. Expect a quick closure of this game after 2-3 months as ninja theory move on to make their next half ♥♥♥♥♥ product.

None of them is talking about the stupid respawns and stupid points system, which are the real deal-killer, because they are all Overwatch-playing zombies, but when even the Overwatch-playing zombies are trashing the game, you know you have a real trashy game on your hands.

Don't waste your money on this unless you're loaded. And if you're loaded gift me a copy so I can trash the fuck out of it on Patreon (or give me access to your copy via Steam Family Sharing...)
