A Scarlet Nexus playable demo is now available on Xbox consoles, allowing players to try out the game for the first time ahead of release.
The playable demo, which will also launch on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 next week, on May 24th, lets players try out the first few minutes of the two story campaigns, up until the very first boss encounter.
A new trailer showcasing this new Scarlet Nexus playable demo has also been released online. You can watch it below.
Scarlet Nexus is setting out to be one of the most interesting games releasing in the coming weeks, thanks to a very interesting setting and a gameplay experience that while not exactly revolutionary, promises to be very enjoyable.
With its distinct Japanese anime feel, interesting setting, and characters, and intense combat, Scarlet Nexus has the makings of a great action role-playing game, although the lack of any truly innovative feature will inevitably turn some players off. I, for one, cannot wait to spend more time with Scarlet Nexus once it releases next month, as the first three hours of the game did manage to get me hooked and left me hungering for more.
Scarlet Nexus launches on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One on June 25th worldwide.
In the far distant future, a psionic hormone was discovered in the human brain, granting people extra-sensory powers and changed the world as we knew it. As humanity entered this new era, deranged mutants known as Others began to descend from the sky with a hunger for human brains. Highly resistant to conventional attack methods, extreme measures needed to be taken to battle the overwhelming threat and preserve humanity. Those with acute extra-sensory abilities, known as psionics, were our only chance to fight the onslaught from above. Since then, psionics have been scouted for their talents and recruited to the Other Suppression Force (OSF), humanity’s last line of defense.
