Blazing Chrome

Publisher The Arcade Crew and developer Joymasher has released a three-minute gameplay preview video of Blazing Chrome, the upcoming side-scrolling action game inspired by titles like Contra and Metal Slug.

Here is an overview of teh footage, via The Arcade Crew:

The gorgeous, eye-popping new footage presents the second level of the game, where heroes Mavra and Doyle take on a variety of unique and oppressive enemies like the hovering and damage-dealing Thunderbird and the dangerous bike-Reapers as the heroic duo whiz to glory in their war against militant AI supercomputers. Combining explosive action with a variety of powerful and distinctive weaponry, Blazing Chrome harkens to the golden age of action platformers but harnesses modern-day controls and deep gameplay mechanics.

And here is an overview of the game:

In Blazing Chrome, an oppressive regime of computers rule the Earth while humans are expendable, lacking power, prestige or status among their machine overlords. When a small group of rebels decide to overthrow their oppressors, it results in heavy casualties and a ton of lock-and-load fast-paced action where scrapping robots and blazing chrome with your powerful weapons is the only thing standing between you and your freedom. Heroes can choose to play as Mavra, a super badass human resistance soldier, or Doyle, the equally groovy and deadly insurgent robot. Either choice will lead you down a path of resistance, culminating in a hellfire of bullets and a revolution that will decide the fate of humanity.

Blazing Chrome will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
