I never would have guessed we would see the reveal of a new Hellboy game at the 2022 Game Awards. Hellboy: Web of Wyrd is a game being developed by Upstream Arcade. It’s a roguelite action adventure game set in the world of Hellboy, Mike Mignona’s universe. Upstream Arcade is also responsible for West of Dead which came out in 2019.
Hellboy will be trying to recover a missing agent from the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense.You’ll head to some spooky places and kill some terrifying monsters while searching for this missing agent. You’ll be doing it all in an awesome, comic-book style art style, too. The game looks gorgeous in a way I’m not sure I’ve ever seen before.
Here’s the trailer that premiered during the Game Awards.
Here is the game's official description:
"Built in 1962 by occultist Pasquale Deneveaux, The Butterfly House is more than a mere residence; it’s a gateway. Its perverse angles and non-Euclidean geometries were designed with a singular foul purpose in mind: to open doorways into a terrible and fascinating dimension called The Wyrd.Twenty years later, an agent of the B.P.R.D. is sent on a reconnaissance mission to the mansion and promptly goes missing. It’s up to you - Hellboy - and your team of Bureau agents to find your missing colleague and uncover the secrets of The Butterfly House.During the investigation, you will explore wondrous and strange planes of existence contained within The Wyrd, each one home to powerful monsters, forgotten godforms, magnificent treasures, and powerful secrets. But be warned, because ancient evil stagnates within the furthest reaches of The Wyrd… evil that is eager to be let out."
Hellboy: Web of Wyrd will be releasing on Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC!
